Hoping to turn my 35 birthday (20 Feb) into a fundraiser for PEP2LIFE Inc to promote awareness on child abuse prevention and intimate partner violence.
$35 to celebrate my 35 years. As a survivor of domestic violence I started PEP2LIFE a nonprofit focused on bringing awareness to intimate partner violence and child abuse prevention. This time last year I did not think that I would even live to get out of 2013 not to mention turn 35. I am truly blessed and know that I must get out there and give back and provide hope and resources to those that are in similar situations that I was.
The money that will be raised will all go toward the PEP2LIFE Inc mission. This is no longer about me. My gift is life and it is time to make sure others have that same opportunity! My immediate goal is to get out and do some awareness with schools for Teen Dating Violence Awareness (Feb) and then start on some April events. I would like to hold a mini fair for the kids within my community, awareness tables, and a 5K walk/run for families! These are just a few of my ideas and I am open to more!
The $35 for 35 is $1 for every year of my life. Of course if you don't have this anything is appreciated and if you are blessed and can do more, hey that that is always welcome. I did set the bar pretty high but based the amount on the number of FB friends that I have (400+) times $1 a year. Seems reasonable ;)!!
There is little funding available during the start up of a nonprofit that doesn't have its 501(c)3 status I am not going to be deterred. This is one of the ways I can ask for help getting this rocking and rolling. I am filing for the nonprofit status this week but with everything it takes time. A lot of you have said that this is a great cause so this your chance to show your support.
Thank you all in advance!! Come on over and like Pep2life Inc on FB! I am waiting on some paperwork to come back and will have a website up within the next few weeks. More to come and I look forward to seeing where this can take us!!
XOXO to all and thanks in advance for the best birthday present ever and also from those whose lives will be impacted because of your kindness!!
