Here at Emerge Global, we’re always looking for new ways to participate in the local community. This month, we had the opportunity to be the beneficiary of MIT’s production of the Vagina Monologues! The Vagina Monologues brings together a diverse group of people from the MIT community, with vastly different backgrounds and interests, united under the common goal to stop violence against women. All proceeds from the MIT production go to local anti-violence organizations helping them to continue and expand their core work. Grassroots movements like V-Day have made significant progress to educate the public and raise awareness about the impact of violence against women. The Vagina Monologues joins their efforts. Hosted on Valentine’s Day weekend, the MIT chapter of Emerge represented Emerge Global at the Vagina Monologues productions, selling Emerge jewelry and answering questions during the event.
We are happy to say that the Vagina Monologues was a huge success this year, selling many more tickets than last year and raising $8100 for Emerge Global! We also sold $253 dollars of jewelry and spread the word through a large stack of pass-it-on cards. The crowd consisted of dedicated Emerginistas as well as many new faces, so our story touched hundreds of new hearts. Our supporters loved our new, bold colors and tags, and were especially excited to hear that we had expanded our program! The Vagina Monologues volunteers staffed our booth on Saturday and Sunday and did an excellent job, with very little prep, so a huge “Thank you!”
Thank you to everyone who attended the event and to the production staff. Everyone at Emerge Global is so grateful for your support!
