Are you man enough to walk in heels?

02 Jun

On behalf of Becky’s Fund and the DC Coalition Against Domestic Violence, we would like to invite you to the upcoming 1st Annual Walk A Mile in Her Shoes March.

Buy tickets here: http://www.eventbrite.com/event/1482126079/efblike

This Walk A Mile in Her Shoes event will be the first global and DC March in history that will be held in multiple countries on the same day. The goal of this March is to raise awareness about the preva…lence of domestic violence in the District and highlight the role of men in responding to and preventing this critical issue facing many women, men and children in our City.

To show their support, all participating men in the March will be wearing high heels – they will truly be walking in the shoes of domestic abuse victims.
*** Women can show support by sponsoring a male friend, father, son and Men will also be able to have the option of walking in different types of shoes.

~~Join this growing list of men who have decided to go through the painful agony of walking a mile wearing women’s shoes to support the movement against dating and domestic violence:

Evan Samir Ibrahim
Reese Gardner
Manu Kennedy
Ike Nwaneri
George Karmokolias
Mike Lee
David Moretti
Howard Lee
Sean Sebastian

Sam Harper
John Fultz
David Guttadauro
David Kamara
Brian Silver
Malik Pollard
Joe Esposito
Ryan Maddock
David Slavick

Kareem Kirdassi

Those participating include local students, concerned citizens, local celebrities, professional athletes, and members of the Media. The March will also be highlighted internationally as a part of the Pixel Project and the International Walk A Mile in Her Shoes Initiative.

Last year, the DC Metropolitan Police Dept responded to more than thirty thousand domestic violence incidences. Countless more victims silently endured violence at the hands of a loved one. Though often not acknowledged, men are a critical link in ending domestic violence in our City.

Thank you so much and we hope you will join us on June 19th!

Chocolate paws happy hour fundraiser at CO CO SALA

16 Feb

It is International Women’s day! What, you didn’t know it? Check HERE. My favorite part: “...the day lost its political flavour, and became simply an occasion for men to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother’s Day and St Valentine’s Day”

So, how we celebrate it? By spoiling ourselves. We accept flowers. We go beautify ourselves. WE DO…N”T DO ANY HOUSEWORK (UGH!!!) Homework doesn’t count though. We buy ourselves something nice (and get gifts, too). And then we go celebrate our fabulousness and beauty. And femininity. What is all women’s favorite? Chocolate, of course! Chocolate equals love, and hey, there is never too much love you can get!

Come and enjoy the whole lounge kindly provided to our group by
Co Co.Sala – chat, sip, chocolatize yourself and enjoy great company. And hey, guys are invited, as well! Who else is to remind us how precious we are!

I encourage everybody to come, especially my Russian girls, there is no reason for you to miss “Mimosa day” in the States, it_is_International!!!

Those who can’t just_donate, or can’t attend other fundraisers – this is your chance to feel good about supporting a cause, and have deliciousness delivered to your belly, all for Happy_Hour_Prices.

10% of bar sales go to Washington Humane Society.

Please share with your friends!

Happy Spring you all.
