207 Hearts United Nationwide For A Cause 

On February 4th and 5th, 207 hearts united nationwide came together to shine a light on the shadows of family and domestic violence through the powerful screening of “The Color Purple.” The generosity of this gathering has allowed us to extend our reach through the distribution of our cherished hair care packs. 


We are overwhelmed with gratitude for the incredible support shown by attendees of The Color Purple events. Your participation and generosity have enabled us to raise $2,739.40, which will be used to distribute 70 “Sis, You Are Crowned” hair care bags.

Updates from the Last Four Months

Our mission goes beyond just one event and donation.  To continue making a difference, we organized and facilitated three trauma-informed therapeutic workshops to  domestic violence (DV) survivors , this entailed pampering and self-care sessions at  Naala Djookan Healing Centre and Zonta’s House Women’s Refuge. 70 woman participated in creating a homemade body scrub and mask, with ingredients that serve as a reminder to invest in their self-care. Additionally, we also donated 70 rose stems to participants and affirmation cards , spreading the love and beauty of flowers.
