Taking a Stand
The Christy Sims Foundation was founded in response to a tragic incident of domestic violence upon its founder, Christy Tucker Sims. The mission of the Foundation is to educate the community, increase awareness and raise funds to support victims of domestic violence and their children, providing resources to help them rebuild their lives and support for their journeys to recovery.
Social media plays in integral role in helping to reach an international audience for what was once a grassroots effort. Connecting with supporters, collaborators, and media outlets via social social media is aiding Christy in sharing her story so that others may learn more about domestic violence, potentially avoid it in their own life, and helping others who need it.
