Awesome Foundation Oahu is proud to announce our October recipient of $1000, Domestic Violence Action Center’s (DVAC) Lipstick Project.  DVAC continually seeks innovative ways to reach and empower victims, providing them with advocacy and critical information.

Their Lipstick project is an outreach give away that is offered to women at community events. Each lipstick container contains important contact and safety planning information for victims of domestic violence to use in times of need in an unassuming cosmetic case that blends in with a women’s purse (undetectable for the most part by the controlling partner).  Safety is of the utmost concern in reaching out to domestic violence victims and this project is a safe and opportune way to reach female victims.

DVAC will use their $1000 to create safety contact information contained within lipstick holders to pass out to potential clients at community outreach events and fairs. 

Awesome Foundation Oahu is proud to support efforts that help strengthen our community and make ours a safer place to live for all.
