How do you tell a story about how and why WodBottom is here without going back 30 years?
I grew up in a home where domestic abuse was always lurking. The complex and hard to comprehend emotional impact that had was huge. Having very little self worth or confidence, I found myself in similar relationships, continuing a cycle that started with my mom.
Since adulthood, I just knew that no matter what I was doing, I ultimately wanted to help women truly understand their worth.
Plus, how amazing would life be if women didn't feel ashamed to speak up, weren't afraid to go after what they want, and believed whole heartedly that they are just as valuable as men?
Pretty freakn' incredible, I bet
This isn't man bashing...this is woman loving.
So to put money where our mouth is, we are honored to give back to DAIS (Domestic Abuse Intervention Services). DAIS is incredible and they help so many people (men and women) find safety from Domestic Abuse. Whether is helping them create an escape plan or to house survivors and their families, their impact is great and their work is important.
By bringing light to Domestic Abuse, we also hope to help women feel unashamed when they find themselves in this situation. An incredible amount of women have reached out to us to share their stories. I want to hear less of them, not because people shouldn't share (they should!), but because there is less abuse.
So thank you, thank you so much for coming here to peruse the stuff we make. Your purchase helps others and we are grateful.
