To all the humans who’ve been the victims of violence:
“And here you are living despite it all” – @rupikaur_
You’ve done it. You’ve survived, and you continue to show up and be heard. They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, and this time “they” are so right. In a society where fear lurks in the darkness and violence has touched so many of us, we’re here to shine a light of hope brighter than anything the world has bared witness to before.
We’re here to watch you rise up from the ashes and take flight. We’re here to cheer you on as you reclaim your story and transform it into one of resilience.
It’s time for you to not merely survive, but to live your best life.
Can we all agree that the violence in our world needs to stop? When the recent news of the Parkland school shooting hit the media stations, our hearts dropped. Our jaws tightened and our stomachs flipped. Not again. How could this type of violence against fellow humans take place time and time again? But, it does and it will continue to until we can make real change within ourselves, our communities, and our world.
This month, we’re partnering with La Frontera Empact, a nonprofit that offers 100% free mental health counseling to humans in need of support. 10% of all shop profits this month will help fund their annual Take Back The Night event, which empowers victims of violence and makes our communities stronger. Bonus: we’ll have a presence at the event as well…@breepear is set to be the event emcee and @wildcrissy will be telling her survivor story.
Rise up and live your best life so we can have the best world. It’s time.
