According to the United Nations, ONE out of every THREE women on the planet will be physically or sexually abused in her lifetime.
Quick links: Three ways you can support the cause:
I am proud to be granted the rights to direct a V-Day benefit production of The Vagina Monologues, on May 22nd and May 24th at the Triad Theater in NYC. V-Day is a global activist movement to stop violence against women and girls.
In addition to ticket sales, I have set up a fundraising page. My goal is to personally raise $1,000. If you can’t attend the production on May 22nd or May 24th, this is a great opportunity for you to show your support!
As the organizer for the event, I was asked to pick a NYC based beneficiary. That was an easy choice! I wanted to pick an organization that uses theatre to empower young women. viBe Theater Experience is an organization that I have worked with in the past. I’m extremely passionate about their mission. viBe provides a safe space for under-served girls (ages 13-19) to express their voices, take on challenge and responsibility and gain the self-confidence to succeed personally, socially and academically. See the YouTube video below for more information!
We were asked to donate 10% of all net profits to V-Day 2011 Spotlight on Women of Haiti. After that, we have set a goal of 94 cents of every dollar raised to be donated to viBe Theater Experience. Help us raise awareness. The truth is shocking. According to the United Nations, ONE out of every THREE women on the planet will be physically or sexually abused in her lifetime.
