#DidIMakeMyselfClear Movement for Domestic Violence Reform & Funding πŸ“

  • The Story behind the #DidIMakeMyselfClear movement:

    Our founder, Brandi Leifso started Evio in a women's shelter in 2012 (At the time, it was called Karmaface Cosmetics, and it was a very different company, but the mission was still the same; Break Stigmas with good-for-you beauty products). 

    With all of your support, Brandi's life has drastically changed, and so has the company - but we've noticed that the system and support for survivors hasn't. 

    "I kept thinking, ‘when is this going to change’ and then I realized, we’re the people who will change it!" - Brandi Leifso, Founder & CEO of EVIO. 

    That is when the award winning #DidIMakemyselfclear Lip Serum was created with the intention to heal more than just our lips and the movement began. 



    Our goal with the #DidIMakeMyselfClear movement is to get 1,000 signatures from supporters of Domestic Violence Reform & Funding. With your support, we're already 86% of the way there in just 10 days!


    It doesn't stop with the petition - That's just the beginning. We need to put pressure on policy makers to engage in a meaningful conversation to co-create a domestic violence reform plan.

    A BIG WIN!✨ - But just the start of Domestic Violence Reform & Funding 

    The federal government announced on May 27th, 2022 funding to construct and repair hundreds of spaces for women and children fleeing violence.

    Housing Minister Ahmed Hussen said the government will give over $121 million to build and repair a total of 430 spaces in shelters and transitional housing.

    Advocates and front-line workers have been sounding the alarm that domestic violence has been on the rise since the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic, worsening the already dire shortage of shelter beds for women and children seeking safe places to stay.
