Arizona Facial Plastics and Sojourner Center have teamed up with Charity Charms to raise awareness and funds through their Key to Strength program. The timing coincides with Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October and each $50 donation helps provide one night of safe shelter and services for a woman in need. This includes a safe and comfortable room, three warm meals, case management, workforce development case management, daily classes, traumatic brain injury assessment, and 24-hour access to pet companion shelter if theyâ€™ve brought their pet companion with them.
For every $50 donation made now through the end of October, supporters will receive a custom unisex key fob as a thank you gift which features charms from Sojourner Center and Arizona Facial Plastics to signify their bond and support. The goal is to raise $20,000 for Sojourner Center. All of the donations benefit the nonprofit due to the generous support of Arizona Facial Plastics who is funding the key fobs made by Charity Charms.
In addition, if you make a $50 donation in person at Arizona Facial Plastics, you will receive $50 off your next service.
"Domestic violence is far too prevalent in our society, and it leaves emotional and physical scars from which it can be difficult to heal," says Felicia Taghizadeh, CEO of Arizona Facial Plastics. "I chose to partner with Sojourner Center because, in my business, we have seen first hand how difficult it can be for a woman to move into her new life with confidence when she still has physical scars on her face from the abuse. By helping to erase those scars, we can help a woman regain her sense of self and move confidently into a new and safe chapter of her life.â€
Key to Strength was built out of the need to help Arizona nonprofits through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. Many of Arizonaâ€™s nonprofits have reported a strain in their organizations due to an increased need for services during the last few months. Key to Strength brings together the power of the community, the power of businesses, and the power of charms to have a positive impact on Arizona.
