WYR Partnership with the Pixel Project

The When You’re Ready Project is excited to announce a partnership with The Pixel Project. During the month of May (in honour of Mother’s Day) the Pixel Project will feature 5 stories from the WYR Community as part of their Survivor Stories series which features daily stories from survivors (with links back to our community).

The Pixel Project has been around for over 5 years and raises awareness and funds to end all forms of violence against girls women: not only sexual assault but domestic violence, female genital mutilation, human trafficking and others. It is an amazing organization and I highly recommend you check it out.

If you’re interested in sharing, please send your story to me by March 31, 2015. The guidelines are a little different from WYR – there is a structured interview form (download at http://reveal.thepixelproject.net/2015/01/call-to-action-the-survivor-stories-blog-interview-project-2015/) and you must submit your name and picture.  This is a big step and I am in no way pressuring you to do so. But if you’re interested, please read on…

  • Please note that this becomes the property of The Pixel Project and your submission indicates they have your permission to publish it on their site and social media. They also reserve the right to shorten or edit your answers.
  • The Pixel Project has committed 5 spots to WYR – so there is no guarantee that your submission will appear. However – if it is not selected and you’d like to share it, you know you always have a place to do so here. Note that they may save yours and publish it next year. If you change your mind, you can email me and I’ll help you get in touch with their founder Regina Yau, or you can contact the Pixel Project directly.
  • Please share this invitation with others who might have a story to share on any topic related to Violence Against Women.
  • Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions at all – I may not know the answers but I’ll be sure we find them.
