Don't Give Up
This project also serves as an awareness campaign to "Stand Up - Speak Up - and Don't Give Up" and don't give in to conformity. Ms. Andressen was a victim of abuse on many levels: sexually as a child, bullied even in her adult years, emotionally and physically harmed. Because of this, she does a lot of non-profit/charity work to raise awareness and help those who also suffered. The numbers of victims are on the rise as our world loses sight of Love. She and her dancers want to stop the suffering by using their artistry to get the message out. "We need to help prevent suicides due to out-casting and succumbing to peer pressure or abuse. Love is the answer.
There is value in giving others their value. They need to know: "They are not their failures, confusions, labels, mistakes. They are humans that love, feel and are wonderfully made." You can help us ennoble another human being through art.
We cordially invite you to join the emotional journey.
