Coloring for a Cause: SafeHomes

Coloring for a Cause: SafeHomes

posted in: News | 0

Everyone needs a little help sometimes…

This month’s cause is especially personal for me. The charity these digis benefit is not a national charity (that I am aware of) and it does not have a rating on Charity Navigator. I think this is because it is so small and a lot of the funding comes from grants and the government. However, I know from personal experience that this charity helps people as it helped me almost 10 years ago, when my kids were all still very young and I was trying to get out of an abusive marriage. SafeHomes helped me with legal representation and offered me shelter, clothing, food, school supplies, counseling and additional services. I was and am fortunate to have a family (my sister and mother specifically) that was there for me so I only needed to take advantage of the legal representation. Not everyone is so fortunate. So for women (and men) like me, who find themselves in what may seem like a hopeless situation, this month’s cause is the SAFE Homes Rape Crisis Coalition.

From their webpage:
“SAFE Homes-Rape Crisis Coalition provides services to victims of domestic violence in Spartanburg, Cherokee and Union Counties and victims of sexual assault in Spartanburg and Cherokee Counties. Our mission is to use our collective voice to address the impact of domestic and sexual violence by providing quality services to those affected and to create social change through education, training, and activism. Vision: We envision a community liberated from all forms of domestic violence and sexual assault.”

This month’s digis…

Come grab both of these digis (four files in total) for $5 here…

 

I had so much FUN coloring these!

These were both colored with Copic markers and a little bit of Prismacolor colored pencil in the shading. Please note you don’t receive colored versions of these digital stamps when you purchase the set. They are simply here because a.) I love coloring them! and b.) they are examples of what you can do with the digis yourself <3
