It's completely understandable at first impulse why some people may have had an adverse reaction to our fundraising efforts.
This was a concept created by our female staff members to raise money for a local women's shelter, the Domestic Violence & Child Advocacy Center ( https://dvcac.org/ ).
Our goal is also to spark an important conversation about the advocacy of women's health issues, ignite awareness and action towards the needs of local women's shelters, and dispel archaic attitudes about women's bodies.
The reality is that in our modern world, we are bombarded with an endless amount of advertisements and distractions. It takes something impactful to cut above the noise to get people's attention. These are important issues that need to be discussed and it's often easier to simply ignore them.
We have received an overwhelming amount of support to continue our mission. We understand our concept is a topic for debate but at the end of the day it's about raising awareness and coming together to help those in need. Donations can also be made directly to the Domestic Violence & Child Advocacy Center
