Kicking Off DVA Month with Cupcakes

To kick off Domestic Violence Awareness month, a few of our officers teamed up with The Pixel Project and the FSU Alpha Chi Omega collegians to Paint It Purple for DVA!

The idea was to make cupcakes and decorate them in purple and white and then to blog about it for a "blog party" on October 2nd (today!!). Jennifer and Amy did the baking and then took the cupcakes and lots of supplies (frosting, sprinkles, napkins, etc.) to the FSU AXO House yesterday and had a great time at lunch with the young women talking about domestic violence awareness, the Pixel Project and Refuge House, our local domestic violence shelter.

After lunch, Jenn and Amy delivered about 7 dozen cupcakes to the Refuge House administrative office for the staff to enjoy and share with the residents at their safe house. Here are a few photos of the fun we had:

We were happy that together with Britain and Peyton's cupcakes we had plenty to share and were also able to leave over two dozen at the chapter house for the sisters to enjoy, and to share with friends.
