In 2020, we were inspired by the incredible need for support to take giving back one step further. That’s when we realized that the Shelters needed support to enable the transformation of survivors from living in the cycle of abuse to becoming successful, independent human beings. That’s how the “Beaten to Badass Make an Impact in 2020 Campaign” started. People sponsor the book, which is then sent to a shelter in America. Through the generosity of sponsors, we have been able to reach over 530 shelters across the United States, 2 internationally which helps change lives forever. As a community we have fully sponsored 16 states and Puerto Rico to date. As one we can only do so much, yet together the possibilities are endless.
To put a copy of: From Beaten to Badass in every shelter in the United States to help those that can identify with the words within the pages. In hopes that it gives them the strength and courage to find their voice!
