Victoria House Corporation (VHC) began ten years ago in a small Idaho town with a safe house for women and children in recovery from domestic violence. From that experience the foundation was laid for the organization’s growth into a vibrant community non-profit. Our San Diego, California-based organization consists of a diverse group of domestic and international associates who represent many cultures and languages.
VHC’s main goal is to help people improve their lives one-by-one.
VHC has developed an extensive outreach to the San Diego Asian community, which includes partnering and collaborating with governmental agencies and organizations, as well as hosting various cultural events. Currently, our organization is in the process of developing a self-sustaining community garden, revitalizing neighborhood North Park events, and is instrumental in working with the refugee community.
What is Light Up the Sky for Breast Cancer ™?
Light Up The Sky For Breast Cancer ™ is a Nationwide event scheduled within the month of October, which is recognized throughout the world as National/International Breast Cancer Month. Our event this year was October 19, 2013, at 7pm, in the four different time zones within the United States of America. The event is designed to occur simultaneously across the country.* We will continue to accept donations year-round for this worthy cause. Each year, during the month of October, we will choose the perfect night to Light Up The Sky for our loved ones. Our hopes are to raise awareness to all and have the World participate.
Day of Hope and Remembrance
Participants will gather privately for small groups or in designated Key locations for medium to large groups. After basic introductions to open the event, a moment of silence will be held, then a countdown to the 7pm hour, at that hour, our participants will launch their pink-lighted device into the sky, proclaiming for whom they are lighting the sky. The event is one of celebration, remembrance and determination. We are celebrating life, remembering the battles fought: won and lost with this silent killer of both women and men, and showing our unification in our determination to eradicate this disease by any means necessary.
For Whom Do You Light Up The Sky?
*We are not excluding people from overseas to participate; our primary focus is the continental USA, as this is our first year, hence the importance of social media. We understand that breast cancer has no borders.*
