Friends of Courage United Survivors(FOCUS), one of the non profits I volunteer with, is putting on “The Vagina Monologues” as a fundraiser this month. We need your help to get the word out. Please forward this  to anyone you think may purchase tickets, at $30, or who may be able to send this on to friends and family who can.

Here is the organization website. The Executive Director is a domestic violence SURVIVOR and awoke from her abuse with broken ribs, a broken nose, a major back injury and a fire in her belly to do something! She started a non profit program that teaches the martial arts of Kung Fu and Thai Chi to female victims of domestic violence and their children. The purpose is empowerment. Self defense is a side affect!

Please pass this on and consider purchasing some tickets yourself. Thank you for you time.

  What is V-Day? V-Day is a global movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of Playwright/Founder Eve Ensler’s award-winning play The Vagina Monologues. In 2005, more than 2500 V-Day events took place in the U.S. and around the world. To date, V-Day has raised over $30 million and educated millions about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it; crafted international educational, media and PSA campaigns; reopened shelters; funded safe houses in Kenya, South Dakota, Egypt and Iraq and over 5000 community-based anti-violence programs. The ‘V’ in V-Day stands for Victory, Valentine and Vagina.

What is the Worldwide Campaign?

The V-Day Worldwide Campaign is a catalyst for mobilizing communities to heighten awareness to stop violence against women and girls. Local V-Day organizers around the world use both art and activism to shift traditional attitudes towards women and violence.

Through benefit performances of The Vagina Monologues on or around V-Day (Feb 14) a V-Day event provides a way for diverse, local women, activists and actors to collaborate and express universal ideas and emotions regarding violence against women in their own unique way, tailored to their individual experiences and their specific audiences. The proceeds from these events are donated directly to local organizations in the community that are working to stop this violence.
