Help us make this event possible and transform someone's life! Donate to help create a day of renewal and encouragement of women affected by Domestic Violence. WHAT IS PEARLS? A day long event on October 20th, 2012! Mission: To reach a diverse group of women through activities that are as varied and diverse as the program sponsors but with the common theme: mourning those who have died because of domestic violence, celebrating those who have survived, and connecting those who work to end violence. Hip Chick Photography will partner with four (4) Charlotte area agencies that work with women who have been victims of domestic violence. Each agency will nominate one individual to be transformed that day with professional hair, makeup as well as provide clothing for the “big reveal” and photography session. These women will be honored in an evening gala. The goal of this partnership is to create a change of power in these women who have been victimized and provide a platform for them to share their stories with other women. Key Focus areas/activities: Empowering women through self defense classes, motivational speakers and community resources. Educating young women on how to identify domestic violence, stopping the violence and community agencies that can support them through their crisis or situation. Encouragement and self esteem renewal: Women will have access to nutritionist, pampering sessions (ie massages, facials, makeovers) as well as activities to connect and network with other women. Activities such as dance class, zumba and fellowship.
