I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ♡
Here’s what’s happening this week on ¤ under1000skies ¤
This week we featured three photos from Alisa Reagan
and one from Niki Flow
Thank you for donating your beautiful photos! ♡
We have purchased under1000skies.com and under1000skies.org!
During 2017, we will be working to build both websites and have them up and running as soon as possible. As you may have read, thanks to Bay Area Web Designers, we received a free year of hosting for our Domestic Violence advocacy and survivor site, Moonsongs.net which will go live by the end of March. This will be a sister site to under100oskies.org. Very often, women and children who are victims of domestic violence and other violent crimes become homeless.
One of our photographers and volunteer coordinator, Niki Flow, spent years with her youngest son homeless. Niki lost her home and the contents of her home due to DV and stalking. Most of that time, she and her son did not spend on the street but in DV shelters, with friends and family. Domestic violence was also the cause of the death of her youngest son, Samuel Christopher. Since then, Niki and her two older sons, Benjamin and Joseph, have been passionate about helping those who are homeless and who have been through trauma become — not just survivors — but a strong, connected tribe of thrivers.
We’ll be using the Under1000skies.com site for our new store (coming soon!), and 100 percent of the profits from our products sold there will go to buy artist packs. We’ll be selling things like cards, stationary and mouse pads using Niki Flow’s heart-people drawings, like the one above. The under1000skies.org site is where we’ll have our artist gallery and daily photos.
