The Savvy Sleepers Dallas Launch Party

Savvy-Sleepers-story-time

Feeling like a sweaty mess in the Texas heat, I laced up my 16-month-old daughter’s pink Nike’s, piled her diaper bag full of toys, her sippy cup, and a zip-lock full of sweet potato Puffs. We rushed out the door to meet Bianca.

Bianca works for Genesis Women’s Shelter & Support helping victims of Domestic Violence in Dallas. This was two months ago and I remember driving down the Dallas Tollway feeling overwhelmed with an afternoon to-do list I had no chance of finishing before I picked up my husband from work a few hours later.

I met Bianca and we drove to the shelter together. It is both an emergency shelter and long-term shelter for women escaping an abusive relationship. Within the first few minutes walking through the shelter, I saw women who had a sense of relief on their faces, yet also sadness and exhaustion.

There was a woman standing in the lobby area holding a tiny, adorable newborn who I will never forget. The baby was only five days old and they were both living in the shelter. We asked how she was feeling. Tired, of course. She had a 5-day old and was still recovering from her C-section. She was on her way to pick up her other two children from school.

Every little thing I had to worry about that day felt like nothing. Here was a woman with a 5-day old, a 1-year-old, and older children living in the shelter handling all of this alone with the help of Genesis.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and while it may feel like there is a cause, charity, or go-fund-me just a click away on every social media channel, I have always felt strongly about helping women who are trying to escape the cycle of Domestic Violence and wanted a way my business, Savvy Sleepers satin pillowcases for hair & skin, could give back to a shelter which does SO much for this community. After all, 1 in 4 women experience domestic violence at some point in their life.

Bianca was there to speak at the party and share how Genesis gives women help, support, legal aid, clothes, training and most importantly, a safe shelter to stay in where they make it feel like a cozy bed and breakfast. Some party pics above and you can see more of the Dallas Launch Party pics here.

Savvy-Sleepers-Genesis-Women's-Shelter

Savvy Sleepers is donating 20% of all sales this October to Genesis Women’s Shelter. We will also donate enough satin pillowcases for each bed in the Genesis shelter with a tiny note and message of hope for the secret pocket. It’s one of our favorite English proverbs…

‘Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly.’
