PLEASE help us raise money for First Step, a Detroit non-profit, providing critical services to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault (and their pets).
First Step is a non-profit agency in Metro-Detroit providing super comprehensive services for victims of domestic and sexual violence. We encourage you to check out all of the confidential and free services First Step provides here: http://www.firststep-mi.org/programs-and-services/
This is what really got us: First Step also has a unique program called "Animals Receiving Kindness" that allows survivors to bring their pets to the residential shelter. ARK is an important resource to remove the barriers that keep survivors from leaving for fear that their pet will be harmed or killed as a result of the power and control that often occurs in domestic violence situations.
We are hosting a fundraiser at Lost River in Detroit on 11.7.2019 from 6-11PM. If you can't attend, we would appreciate any donation IMMENSELY.
Also, you can also contribute by purchasing any of the items on First Step's 2019 wish list:
We will coordinate pick-up/drop off of your wish-list gifts and present them to First Step on the night of the fundraiser.
We're not official. We're not professional. We're just trying to help (with a cocktail in hand). Thank you so much for helping.
Cheers and Gratitude,
Jessica Mullen, Maggie Wagner, Alexandra Hosking, Brooke Curcuri, Bridget Roa, Megan Switalski, Julie Vande Vusse, and Erin Bledsoe.
