A Survivor Not a Victim

Overcoming Rape


Sexual Assault Causes


From their website:

“Our Vision

The vision of the Joyful Heart Foundation is a world free of sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse.

Our Mission

Our mission is to transform society’s response to sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse, support survivors’ healing, and end this violence forever. 

While we understand that our vision may not be achievable in our lifetimes, we firmly believe that violence and abuse are preventable. In support of our vision and mission, we have developed and adopted a set of values and guiding principles that inform and inspire our approach to all that we do:

  • Our Values are the foundation of our organization and guide our thinking, actions, decisions, responses, and priorities.
  • Our Guiding Principles serve as a compass both individually and organizationally. They are the application of our core beliefs that help to shape and direct our work. We approach all we do and every decision we make with the Guiding Principles in mind.”


A percentage of all items purchased in the “Heartshop” are donated from product partners to Joyful Heart.



The NO MORE symbol expresses universal support for ending domestic violence and sexual assault while raising awareness and breaking down the barriers of stigma, silence and shame that keep people from talking about these issues and taking action to prevent them. Wearing or displaying the symbol is one of the many ways you can act to support NO MORE and the movement to end domestic violence and sexual assault.

From the NO MORE website:

“How does NO MORE help survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault?

NO MORE’s work to increase awareness, funding, support and activism to help prevent violence is helping to make a difference in the lives of survivors. NO MORE provides tools and resources to partner organizations that offer lifesaving services and prevention programs.In just a few years, NO MORE has successfully brought together the largest coalition of advocacy groups, service providers, governmental agencies, major corporations, universities, communities and individuals, all under a unifying symbol in support of a world free of violence. Nearly 1,000 organizations and 75,000 individuals have joined NO MORE. Hundreds of schools have NO MORE groups, and another almost 30 local city-wide, state-wide and international NO MORE programs have been born. Thanks to our partners, our PSAs have gotten more than 4.4 billion impressions.Most recently, NO MORE helped raise more than $1.2M for grassroots organizations through the NO MORE Challenge, an online fundraising competition that we hosted in 2016 and 2017.”


How they help: “NO MORE does not accept donations from the general public. Instead, NO MORE directs individual donations and any profit generated from the sale of products in the NO MORE Shop to partner organizations in the direct service, advocacy and prevention fields (see the list of Benefitting Organizations).”


“LALAGRAC is a clothing line that empowers men, woman, and children to embrace who they are and to always stand up for what they believe in. There is no grey area in abuse. Abuse is abuse. We have chosen to donate a portion of the proceeds to  RAINN, which is the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization. To show our support and belief in our cause, when a clothing item is purchased a portion of the cost will be donated to the organization. Each item in the LALAGRAC collection will be named after an abuse survivor.”

They have a selection of women’s, men’s and children’s clothing. Their message is that “THERE IS NO GREY” when it comes to sexual assault.


I have one of these, I purchased it shortly after my rape, the cause I choose was for the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center. They are well made, stainless steel. When I first got it, I never took it off. It was a reminder through some of the darkest times in the beginning of this tragic ordeal.  Also, I believe that this site also allows you to create your own cause (but I could be wrong).

Additionally, there are SO MANY causes to choose from in mental health categories, heal categories….the list goes on!
