Hello and thank you for taking the time out to read this article. My name is Kristie Beard, I am creative visionary, residing in the Detroit area. I will be coordinating my first event, in the form of Women’s Awareness, which will feature victims as well as supporters as a network of empowerment. My goal for this event is to invite women from all over the state to be apart of a supportive foundation while celebrating the enormous amount of strength they’ve put forth to overcome various obstacles. At 24, I was faced with a divorce all while having a baby, ultimately, resulting in the beginning of my journey as a single mother. It has not been easy by any means, but I feel as though I have the drive and passion to not only unite, but uplift, women in similar situations. My vision is to reciprocate this event into something that will occur annually. In hopes that women can always look forward to this special event.

Our thesis: “We inspire hope in women who were sexually abused as children or adolescents by hosting them at a retreat, where they are uplifted by each other and learn skills that can help them find individual healing. We educate parents and empower them to protect their children from sexual abuse while leading a public dialogue to bring the epidemic of abuse to light. ”

Part of feeling better about yourself is looking better. So, at the event, we will offer a free professional make over, with the option of having a professional photo shoot with a professional photographer. I would like to jump start this into something that will potentially be a safe haven orget away for women who need to be uplifted. This is where you come in! I am definitely motivated to achieving a successful event and subsequently I would have to start at square one; the what, where, how, and when. To make this a smooth chain of events I would need to rent or reserve a location with adequate space to host the event. I would love to provide lunch or even a light brunch for the attending guests.The date in mind is May 7th, in celebration with Mother’s Day. I have a team of freelance photographers and make-up artist who are on board and eager about the movement.

I would be overjoyed with support and participation from the public in order to help these women feel that their stories are not going unheard and inspire them to continue on the path of positivity. If this sounds like something you may be interested in, I would greatly appreciate your contribution. My goal is to raise $5000 to help establish an extraordinary life changing event to be remembered in the hearts of these women forever. Thank you for your time Kristie Beard
