Creative Entrepreneur Establishes Fund to Assist Victims of Domestic Violence
Bonita Springs, FL, May 1, 2016: Internationally acclaimed author/designer/personality and yarn company owner Kristin Omdahl has announced the establishment of Project Kristin Cares.
Says Omdahl: “As a victim of domestic violence myself, I am all too aware of the prevalent sense of shame and isolation that often accompanies this all-too common crime in today’s society. Project Kristin Cares will both shed light on this issue as well provide funds for women (and men) who have been forced from their homes and need to start over.”
Omdahl explained that not only will a portion of all proceeds from the sale of all Kristin Omdahl brand products be donated to Project Kristin Cares, but that she will also donate products from her body care line ‘KO Glow’, saying “imagine that you have been forced to flee from your home and are terrified and grateful for anything – how marvelous would be to receive a luxury product instead of the least expensive thing money can buy? When everyday life is a struggle, small luxuries can go a long way!”
Special events and programs are planned to help raise money for this worthy cause. For more information go to: www.KristinOmdahl.com/PKC
