safe horizon

A wonderful friend, Lynette, sent me a message yesterday telling me about a cool event that's taking place in NYC today and tomorrow:

Urban Sanctuary Shopping Benefit for Safe Horizon
Thursday & Friday, December 8 & 9,  10:00am - 8:00pm
Rockefeller Center, 636 Fifth Avenue at 51st Street, New York, New York

The benefit will be held at Faconnable's 5th avenue flagship store to help raise money and awareness for Safe Horizon, the nation's largest provider of services for victims of crime and abuse. Bring an upwrapped toy with you to the event and be entered to win a VIP gift bag. It promises to be a swank event with Kelly Rutherford from 'Gossip Girl' hosting and vendors selling their wares including Vinci, Dermalogica, Smartcar, Alize, Votre Vu, Dyanne Bell Jewelry, and more! The organizers of this event, Urban Sanctuary, have a simple mission: to offer companies an opportunity to 'make a profit while making a difference' through a series of interactive retail events that raise money and awareness for various causes and organizations. We like that type of mission.

This event will benefit Safe Horizon, the largest victims’ services agency in the United States. They have 57 locations serving more than 250,000 children, adults, and families affected by crime and abuse throughout New York City each year. Safe Horizon offers a number of vitally important programs, including 24-hour hotlines. If you need help, call. If you see abuse, report it. Safe Horizon provides a Streetwork Project for Homeless Youth, Child Advocacy Centers, Domestic Violence Law Project, Immigration Law Project, Counseling Centers, Community Programs, Court Programs, Domestic Violence Shelters, and Project SAFE - a free service that installs new locks or cylinders in the homes of those who have filed police reports.

You don't have to go to a fancy shopping event to help Safe Horizon. Make this holiday a special one for children and youth who wish for comfort, safety, and happiness with a donation. Your donation supports their 24-hour hotlines, domestic violence shelters, community services, Child Advocacy Centers, trauma counseling, and group services for victims of crime and abuse, homeless youth, and families of homicide victims. Safe Horizon spends 84 cents per dollar on programs that help those affected by violence and abuse. You can also buy a gift for someone from Safe Horizon's online store, Hope Shop, where you can purchase special gifts that are fashionable and powerful.
