Many of us have seen the news and heard the reports about the increase of domestic violence in our community.
Here’s a shocking fact: 1 in 3 women and 1 in 7 men will experience domestic violence in their lifetime! Chances are you know someone dealing with domestic violence right now. Given the seriousness of our local problem, Safehome is excited to announce that we are participating in an iCare campaign.
iCare is an awareness campaign designed to bring the issue of domestic violence out from behind closed doors. The campaign will gear up throughout the month of October and culminate on Wednesday, October 30 when the greater Kansas City community will come together to increase awareness about domestic violence and to be part of the solution. Businesses and community professionals will show they care about domestic violence by wearing a symbolic “black eye” sticker.
Safehome is grateful for the support of our Community Leaders. Chief Frank Donchez and Officer John Lacy of the Overland Park Police Department have joined together with Scott Poore of Mission Driven Goods to say “iCare”. Together with the help of our community leaders, local businesses, and various clubs and organizations, we can make the difference in the lives of victims of domestic violence.
Will you and your business please join Safehome in doing the following?
- Commit to wearing a symbolic black eye sticker at your business on October 30, 2019
- Commit to a participation fee (based on company size)
- Host a fundraiser leading up to October 30, 2019 to benefit Safehome
- Display information at your place of business about Safehome
A kit will be provided, making the processes simple.
Thank you to Lauren Muth with Lighthaus Global for helping Safehome spread the word about iCare.
