Since the beginning it has been daunting to approach fundraising. Programs YAY! Donations – YAY! Raising money…….(crickets!) This year I decided to take the bull by the horns and reach out to the wonderful people who have loved the work we do!
I also decided to trust my instincts that people would support such an organization! This Domestic Violence Month, I decided to launch a Fall Scarf Fundraiser. Using Facebook I put out a call for folks who would be willing to be Brand Ambassadors. Working with Brazilian photographer extraordinaire Anderson Zaca, we chose a beautiful sunny Fall day and took amazing photos of our Brand Ambassadors with Sue Rock Originals scarves.
Each of our Brand Ambassadors agreed to place the photo as their Facebook profile picture for the month of October – bringing awareness to the plight of domestic violence survivors and information about how Sue Rock Originals supports their lives. A link was included for people to purchase the scarves.
Our Brand Ambassadors came from every walk of life and shared the unique understanding that we all are affected by domestic violence and we all have a hand in supporting the survivors~
If you would like to support our Fall Fundraiser – you can purchase scarves here! Only $20, 50% of the profits go to support classes for survivors of domestic violence in the textile arts!
