How Can I Help?: Wear Your Hope Edition
Matt, an employee here at The Younique Foundation, had the following experience wearing his purple “No More 1 in 4” shirt while at an amusement park with his family:
“We were standing in line for a ride, and a lady behind me, who was probably 19, asked me, ‘Hey, what is that shirt about?’ I told her that I worked for The Younique Foundation, which is a charity that works to stop childhood sexual abuse and help survivors heal. She started to tear up, came right over to me, gave me a big hug, and said, ‘I’m part of the one.’ I got to tell her about The Haven Retreat, and I encouraged her to apply. I don’t know if she ever did, but I hope she knows that there is a group of people out there fighting for her.”
When you buy an item from our store, you are helping The Younique Foundation in three ways:
- You’re showing your support. Every time you wear your shirt, you let the world know that you support The Younique Foundation. That you support ending child sexual abuse. That you support survivors of childhood sexual abuse. That you care.
- You’re spreading the word. Like Matt in the story above, when you wear your shirt, it can lead to questions and conversations. You’ll be able to spread the word to survivors and supporters, as well as help break down the stigma of talking about childhood sexual abuse.
- You’re helping survivors reclaim hope. The money that you spend on a shirt or a water bottle goes to help survivors. As a nonprofit, we rely on donations, but when you buy a shirt it’s like you’re getting a gift for your donation. You get a comfortable and cute shirt, and we get to help more women find healing.
So if you’re looking for a way to help The Younique Foundation make a difference in the lives of survivors of childhood sexual abuse, consider looking through our shop. When you wear one of our shirts you’ll not only make a difference; you’ll look good doing it.
