Tuesday evening was a powerful night for the Washington Redskins cheerleaders and the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation as they partnered with Fear 2 Freedom to put together 150 care packages for victims of child abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault.
Fear 2 Freedom (F2F), a non-profit organization founded by Rosemary Trible in 2011, hosts ‘Celebration Events’ across the country to allow universities and non-profit organizations the opportunity to assemble ‘F2F Kits’, which are sent to local hospitals and domestic violence shelters for victims of sexual assault. Trible, a sexual assault survivor herself, was in attendance on Tuesday night along with members of the F2F staff to put on a memorable experience for the Redskins cheerleaders.
“In the last three years, we’ve delivered 13,000 victims these Fear 2 Freedom kits,” Trible told the cheerleaders. “We’re happy to be able to share our story with each one of you.”Included in the kits are appropriately sized clothes, toiletries, a journal, a “You Matter 2” card, a resource card, a Freedom Bear and a personal handwritten note. All personal notes for the 150 kits were written by the cheerleaders.
