TBT: UC Irvine Take Back the Night 2012

Throwback Thursday to 3 years ago! On April 18 of 2012, Get Safe and Embrace hosted a table at UC Irvine’s annual Take Back the Night event. Following some very brave speakers and a moving candlelit march to raise awareness about sexual violence, attendees meandered through stations hosted by local organizations that addresses various aspects of sexual violence, including recovery. Embrace, a lifestyle brand that grew out of the Get Safe Breaking Barriers program that works with survivors of sexual and physical assault, brought its message of living “free from fear” and being aware of your inner-self. The Embrace art piece entitled “Let Go” gave us an inspired idea… and we had TBTN attendees participate in a video collage to answer this simple question: “What do you ‘Embrace’ most in YOUR life?” Special thanks to all our participants, and UC Irvine CARE for

TBT: 2012 Carousel of Possible Dreams

Time for a throwback! During September 2012, Project GET SAFE was featured by Festival of Children Foundation as one of five Orange County not-for-profit organizations in its Carousel of Possible Dreams fundraising campaign. With the help of our donors, we were able to raise more than $6,000 to help put our National Predator Database in local elementary schools to help keep our children and communities safer! On Sept. 27 the featured charities came together at South Coast Plaza to ride the carousel and collect last-minute donations. Big thanks to FOC and our friends and donors who supported us all month long, helping turn our Possible Dreams into a reality!
