As long as you want to express support to survivors of sexual assault and harassment by telling them that they are not alone, you are welcome to participate. There are three ways you can do so:
- Embroider a square. You can order your square on its own for $5 (free international shipping included). I have more add-on items you can order to help you practice and get you printed out instructions, if you aren’t already a master embroiderer. Because DMC brand embroidery floss is not available everywhere and is need to participate, I also have a special kit that includes the embroidery floss you’ll need available for purchase.
- Give monetary support to make the project happen. This is a very large scale project, and it needs a lot of donations to make it a reality! You can help fund the KickStarter and get exclusive rewards. You can also help defray the costs involved so far by giving to the project here on my website.
- Get the word out! We need the KickStarter to be fully funded in order to get any funds from it. Telling your friends, acquaintances, favorite businesses, and more about the project and the importance of making it happen will help us raise the funds we need.
Thanks for your help and participation!
The You Are Not Alone Project centers around creating a groundbreaking participation artwork with the help of 1,000 people to express support to survivors of sexual assault & harassment.
One thousand people are each embroidering a 3 inch square of a large panel with a purple and blue kaleidoscope-like design, with the words “You are not alone” in metallic teal in the center.
