Ukraine Hope
We are currently working with a shelter in Kiev Ukraine to improve their services. We will be visiting Ukraine in November to give your donations and visit other shelters for victims of domestic violence.

WHY UKRAINE?
•50-70 percent of women in Ukraine are victims of domestic violence.
•Although Ukraine is 15% the size of the US, there are 150% more deaths due to domestic violence.
•There are only 22 domestic violence shelters in Ukraine. (The population of Ukraine is almost equal to the combined population of Oregon, Washington and California—except that there are over 200 shelters in those three states alone.)
•Ukrainian shelters have little governmental support to provide ongoing support.

Amnesty International [http://www.amnesty.org/en/library/info/EUR50/005/2006] concluded, “If women [in Ukraine] are to be able to escape the cycle of violence they must have access to temporary shelters and long-term safe housing.” We are working with a shelter in Kiev that only has 10 spaces available and cannot afford to provide ongoing counseling or legal advice to their battered women. Through your volunteer efforts and donations we will help change that.
$20 will keep a woman and her family safe for one day.

They need your hope in Ukraine.


Local Hope
Domestic violence is not just something affecting the far off countries of the world. There are victims of domestic violence, shelters, support groups and hotlines in every community of the US that can use your support.

We are partnered with the Utah Healing Arts to work with shelters in the local communities providing support and healing through arts, music and service. If you live in Utah County and want to volunteer at a shelter, contact us and Get Involved.

If you want to organize a Courage to Hope program with a local shelter in your area, contact us and we’ll help you get organized.

They need your hope in local communities.


Global Hope
We are developing awareness campaigns about domestic violence to help individuals take a more active role.

They need your hope in the world.
Courage to hope for a world free of domestic violence.

Bret, I applaud you for this effort. Back in 1992 I spent a year and a half in Kiev at a Dacha near the Olympic village. We did things for the orphanage in Kiev especially around Christmas. Many of the children there have complications from the effects of Chernobyl just 80 miles north of Kiev.

Again, I applaud your efforts in Kiev - there's a lot of great people there. (especially the best Borsch chef I've ever known - it's still my favorite lunch with Garlic Bread Balls).

This is good. I like how the first question they ask is, "Are you married?" Oh, BYU...
 
There are a lot of great videos that come out of BYU (my alma mater); this one's great. So awkward, yet fun.....

Amazing. I'll be honest, even with a cast as incredible as this one, I've had my reservations, but they're all gone now. This is gonna be killer!

Amazing Sculptures Made Out of a Single Paper Sheet

Peter Callesen (born 1967) is a Danish artist who makes incredibly complex and beautiful sculptures out of a single sheet of paper. He has an exceptional talent in combining the minimalism of a big crisp white sheet of paper with the complexity of meticulously cut and folded paper and uses the two to build out some really beautiful compositions.

“A large part of my work is made from A4 sheets of paper. It is probably the most common and consumed media used for carrying information today. This is why we rarely notice the actual materiality of the A4 paper” says Peter.

His website: http://www.petercallesen.com/

I started training Muay Thai about 3 months ago and it has literally changed my life. Nobody, including myself, would ever have considered my unhealthy or unconfident, but since I've started training here, I have personally noticed myself get healthier and way more confident in everything that I do. Training here has been the best decision I've made in a very long time. The experience at this particular gym has been a huge part of that. Since day 1, the entire staff has done everything they can to make me feel welcome, including learning my name and welcoming me every time I show up. I immediately felt a bond and kinship that I hadn't felt from any group of people in a long time. Hands down, this is a must if you are even considering it. I'd recommend coming for the free intro class and then doing like one month just to see. If you put in the work and do what they say, I guarantee you will feel a difference in just one month.
