April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) and Child Abuse Prevention Month. Designed Out Of Love partnered with two small businesses, Human Up and The Colour Polka Dot for this year's aWEARness fundraiser. Each are makers of beautiful and unique hand-made items with a backdrop of social justice and community support.
100% of this year's profits will be donated to Resilience, an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the healing and empowerment of sexual assault survivors through non-judgmental crisis intervention counseling, individual and group trauma therapy, and medical and legal advocacy in the greater Chicago metropolitan area. Resilience provides public education and institutional advocacy in order to improve the treatment of sexual assault survivors and to effect positive change in policies and public attitudes toward sexual assault.
