Thank you, Chick fil A You are the best!

That is so awesome!

Y'all, it's not too late! Even though our first virtual event was Saturday, we are still accepting donations for the dollar-for-dollar match. Even if you can only afford $10, it will be matched!

Watch the video if you haven't already. Monique gave the best testimony of how CRITI helps women and children so if you haven't seen it, go for it!

We owe a huge thanks to all that helped make this happen. Check our feed for the event sponsors and know that there are a lot of people behind the scenes (actually too many to count here!) who helped. We will be featuring them in our Thank You Thursdays coming up. SOUND FORCE, PASHA SALON, Orangetheory Fitness, Lindsey Lowe Photography, Mitchell Robert Studio Salon, Let Us Light Your World, elea blake cosmetic studio, Peet's Coffee, The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and Norspring Cryotherapy and Rejuvenation Center are just a few. We appreciate their generosity 🙂
