Six Feet Walk
(May 29-31, 2020)
In light of the Covid-19 crisis Peaceful Paths is among a number of non-profit organizations that have had to cancel or postpone planned Spring Fundraising events. We know that many of you have experienced similar setbacks with your own businesses, school schedules, and events . We have all had to think outside the box to fill the financial gaps and re-imagine how we live, work, and play.
On this Giving Tuesday Now, we are excited to announce our MAKE A DIF-FUR-ENCE Six Feet Walk--A Virtual community event to show your support of victims of domestic violence. We are borrowing this creative fundraising idea from our sister DV center, Harbor House in Orlando who turned their PAWS for PEACE walk into a succesful social distancing event last month.
Peaceful Paths is among the few Florida Domestic Violence agencies that allow vitcims to bring their pets with them to shelter. Research has shown that many victims find it difficult to leave their abusers when they have to abandon a beloved pet. Often times, these pets are also victims of the abusive relationship. We feel fortunate to be able to offer a service that ultimately will save more lives, the core of our mission.
The Make a DIF-FUR-ENCE SIX FEET WALK (4 PAWS +2 FEET=SIX FEET) is an opportunity to support survivors. It's easy. It's fun. It's flexible. It's COVID-19 concious.
Even if you don't have a four-footed friend, if you support survivors, we hope you will put your walking shoes on and advocate for our mission to save lives and create change.
What is the Six Feet Walk?
A virtual fundraiser where you and your furry friend take a walk in support of Peaceful Paths and show your stance against intimate partner violence.
Where will the walk be held?
You pick the location! You can walk in your neighborhood, around a park, on a trail, on the beach (if yours is open), on a track---get creative just remember the six-foot rule!
When is the Walk?
May 29-31-One of the benefits of virtual is flexibility! You get to pick the time over the weekend that works with your schedule. Hopefully, by that time, some of you will be particpating from your favorite beach!
WHAT IS OUR GOAL?
We hope to raise $8,000 between the T-shirt sales, donations, and individual FB fundraisers. We also hope that through this event, more lives will be saved as a result! As of May 19, we have raised over $5,000!
