Brenda's Story, Our Inspiration




     


All along, it has been our vision, our mission,  our dream to touch and change countless lives in a positive way.


The Cowgirls Git-R-Dun domestic violence awareness campaign was conceived when several of our own members were in seriously dangerous life threatening relationships. Many others shared the horrific survival stories from physically, sexually and physiologically abusive relationships that they had endured. We envisioned a non-profit organization that we would one day we start that could reach out and touch thousands of live, and protect our own.

Until the summer of 2010 it was just a dream. On July 31st everything changed.

It was the tragic death of one of our own Cowgirls that motivated us to action. Just two days after her birthday, three days after mine, and the night before she was to escape, Brenda A was murdered, strangled to death at the hands of her abusive boyfriend. Many of our members had convinced her to get out while she could, and one member was traveling to pick her up on August 1st when she was to receive her disability check. It was too late, she was GONE. He got her check.

It was only money that could have made the difference. We vowed never to let that happen again. In her memory and honor,  we work hard every day to fulfill our vision and mission to touch and change the lives of domestic violence victims/survivors, breast cancer patients and homeless veterans. On August 29th 2010 this web site was launched, our vision & mission was now grounded, with a face, and a purpose. Since that time we haven't looked back and we will NOT rest, we will NOT waiver, we will NOT falter and we will NOT fail. We WILL honor Brenda's name and the names of the MILLIONS of victims of domestic violence that have parishes before, since, and are sure to follow. We vow to make a difference in the fight against domestic violence, increase awareness, and help countless thousands by pushing through the darkness yet another mile.  


 Cowgirls Git-R-Dun, Inc. was founded as a non-profit, Florida corporation established on February 10th, 2011, and received our 501(c)(3) status in June of the same year. We now well on our way to making a difference in the lives of Victims of Domestic Violence Victims, Breast Cancer Patients, and  Homeless Veterans through our fund raising efforts of The Cowgirls Git-R-Dun and our primary funding vehicle, Almost Edible Gourmet Candles

Abba - I Have A Dream Lyrics


I have a dream, a song to sing, to help me cope with anything
If you see the wonder of the fairy tale
You can take the future even if you fail
I believe in angels, something good in everything I see
I believe in angels, when I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream, I have a dream

I have a dream, a fantasy, to help me through reality

And my destination makes it worth the while
Pushing through the darkness still another mile
I believe in angels, something good in everything I see
I believe in angels, when I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream, I have a dream
I'll cross the stream, I have a dream

I have a dream, a song to sing, to help me cope with anything

If you see the wonder of a fairy tale
You can take the future even if you fail
I believe in angels, something good in everything I see
I believe in angels, when I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream, I have a dream
I'll cross the stream, I have a dream
