Cares for a Cause is our way of giving back to our community. Every month, Image in a Box donates to a local nonprofit picked by one of our team members. Michelle chose AshaKiran for January!
AshaKiran is a nonprofit organization located in Huntsville, Alabama that empowers and supports individuals from a variety of cultures who may be experiencing a serious crisis. They provide a safe haven to victims affected by human trafficking, abuse, and assault and also provide trauma-informed cultural education across our community.
AshaKiran even provides a 24/7 crisis hotline for those in need. Their team can speak more than 50 languages so victims in crisis can always feel comfortable and understood. No matter where you're from or what you're going through, AshaKiran is here to help.
Why Michelle Chose AshaKiran
Michelle believes in the mission of AshaKiran and recognizes the need for multicultural support in our community. She says,
"Domestic violence continues to grow all over the nation and our community at large. AshaKiran is A Ray of Hope to those suffering from this growing violence in our community. They help them get a safety plan in place to get out of these horrible situations and they even offer safe living for the victims as they transition out of these life-threatening living environments. I encourage you to learn more about their organization and donate to them in any way you can."
Learn how you can help AshaKiran, too! You can help someone in crisis by volunteering, interning, or donating. However you choose to help, you are making a difference for a local person in need.
Stay tuned to see which nonprofit our team selects in February!
