Event description

Description

Last year we successfully held our first annual community event "Dolls Against Domestic Violence." With the help of our community we were able to bring awareness as well as help our local shelter with housing supplies, personal hygiene products, and The Clothesline Project apparel. On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. That's roughly 1,200 people per hour, 28,800 per day, 201,600 per month, 2,419,200 a year. No, unfortunately we am not able to save 2,419,200 lives, but we are able to speak up for over millions of women who are assaulted yearly in the United States. This year on October 19, 2019 we will be hosting our second annual event! There will be a variety of activities, vendors, and speakers educating our community on the effects of domestic abuse. We will also be participating in "The Clothesline Project" this year, as well as a Balloon release in honor of those who fell victim in our community. General Admission is free. However we are asking for a donation of personal hygiene or housing products again forthe local shelters. I have made this fundraiser for those who would like to financially help with this community wide event. All financial donations will go towards the shelter for this event, future programs, and providing needed supplies to local shelters. As previously mentioned, we will recreating the "Clothes Line Project" where we are asking for donations of shirts of several colors and sizes. Please come out for a good time and more importantly be a part of stopping domestic violence; as we bring awareness to the ongoing cycle of abuse. Thank you in advance for your contributions.
