I want to start off by saying THANK YOU for the overwhelming response of interest for this event. ♥ ♥
I believe everyone who has experienced some form of bullying or abuse in their life has the right to speak up and becoming vocal about the issue at hand. Doing so in a setting of like-minded individuals can be a very healing experience in itself.
This event was created as a positive way of self expression for those who may have suffered through bullying, trauma, or abuse. My goal is to bring people of all types together to love and support each other while bringing awareness to a very real and very damaging experience. Please keep in mind some of those participating may still be sensitive about their experi...ence on the topic. If someone does not wish to elaborate or talk about the words they're wearing, please do not pressure anyone into talking about it. We appreciate the consideration for others. ♥
— The plan is to have us wearing the words of hate on our skin in black body paint. Then, showing the process of recovery, we will be washing off the black paint and writing positive compliments on each others skin in colour.
If you are interested in being a PHOTOGRAPHER or VIDEOGRAPHER for the event please contact myself directly. I'm looking into having a backdrop set up for sharing. Please be aware that this event is 100% ran by donation so all work done at the event is to be TFP.
WARRIORS (models) You're welcome to come and go as you please. We will be set up at the park for the day. Hoping to start for noon. We will be doing a group shot at some point but it is not mandatory or required in order to participate in the day.
We will be a family friendly event, so bring your kids, your mom, your grandpa, your neighbor and even your cousins cats adoptive parents friend :)
***I will be providing snacks and (non alcoholic) beverages. Anyone who would like to bring something to contribute to the food table is encouraged to do so***
SIDENOTE: Does anyone else want to potentially take charge of a donation for charity? I was considering taking donations to give to a local suicide prevention organisation but I'm worried I'll be too busy hosting to worry about monetary donations.
