Fight The Fear in Seattle

Thank you to everyone who attended our free Fight The Fear self-defense workshop in Seattle on Sunday! It was our biggest turnout yet... We have seen, first hand, the impact we have made this summer with our FtFC tour and it is truly inspiring. We really believe we have empowered women and girls all across the country to realize their own strength and walk through the world with more confidence. We will never be able to fully comprehend the acts of violence that did not take place because of our mission and message and that is something to be really proud of. To all of the self-defense instructors and the women and girls who attended our nationwide free workshops over the summer, you helped us build a real grassroots campaign from the ground up. But more importantly, you gave us the opportunity to take a tragic event and turn it into a positive message for women and girls everywhere. Thank you to our Executive Director Melinda Johnson and to Jennifer Hopper for being such an inspiration to us all. - Fight The Fear Campaign Team

CALLING ALL BRANDI CARLILE FANS IN CHARLESTON!....

As Brandi prepares to take the stage in Charleston tonight, we would be remiss not to mention The American Red Cross and the vital work they are doing in response to the life-threatening flooding and historic rainfall that is affecting the entire State of South Carolina. As shelters open and plans to assess damage are underway, the Red Cross is in need of additional volunteers to join its workforce in the areas of Charleston, Columbia, Myrtle Beach, and the Upstate. "We are helping families across South Carolina that are in need of shelter, disaster relief and comfort," said Louise Welch Williams, regional chief executive officer of the American Red Cross in South Carolina. "We are also welcoming members of the community who want to help to join us as Red Cross disaster volunteers." The Red Cross is especially in need of volunteers to be available to assist with opening and operating shelters as well as disaster assessment. Shelter volunteers provide a safe, warm, dry place for their neighbors during a disaster.  These volunteers assist with registration, setup of sleeping areas, feeding, and sharing information. Disaster assessment volunteers travel to areas affected by a disaster to review and assess the amount and severity of damage. New volunteers can visit RedCross.org/SC and click on volunteer to start their application. For more information please call: ·         Charleston – 843-764-2323 x321 ·         Columbia – 803-508-5251 ·         Myrtle Beach – 843-764-2323 x321 ·         Upstate – 864-270-9575 Click here for more information....
