Literally a "Cover" Charge
Organized by: Marissa Kaufman
Greetings! For a while now I have been talking about this to my friends and family. As you may or may not know, I used to be a very different person than who you see today. Okay. So, here's where things get a little deep. I hated myself and the phrase "with a passion" wouldn't even begin to cover it! I used harmful substances and even worse I harmed myself physically as an outlet to these hatful and hurtful feelings. I would like to get my self injury scars covered with a beautiful piece of art not to hide the painful past I have endured but, to have a constant reminder that I am not the person I used to be. I'm no longer the sickly looking, scared little girl. I've blossomed into a confident, caring beautiful woman and hey, I'm a pretty good damn mother! That's another thing.. My kids don't need to see these scars. That "life" or lack of is not something I ever want them to know or experience themselves. I can't stand to look at them anymore and I know the people that love me can't either. It's just a painful reminder of how reckless I was with my body and myself. So, if you can help please do! This is just another step in the right direction! Always remember that you are important and you matter! People love you! Now let's all start loving ourselves!
