Nestled along the St. John’s Riverfront with beautiful views of downtown Jacksonville and the Acosta Bridge (which will be lit purple for the event.) As well as partners of ours, across the river, turning their top stories purple in honor and remembrance of the beautiful lives and loves we have lost. We will have local resources participating in the event. Mental Health, MAT Clinics, Homeless resources, Food Insecurity, Treatment Facilities offering several different pathways, Medical professionals, Dental resources, Food Trucks, Music, Training and free Narcan.** We asked that those who have lost someone bring a pair of shoes**. Bringing awareness by lining the Riverwalk with broken hearts and dreams. Please bring a poster of the face of your loss(es). For those details please visit: www.radheartstrings.org or Daughtershineinc.com Come to be loved, hugged in a safe, judgement free area. This night is ALL about our losses. Hope for those seeking a safer use and those looking for Recovery. Vigil candles, Tea Cups etc. will be available at the event.
Please bring posters of your lost one. Their faces deserve to be seen. God , knows how much I miss mine. I know, all the mothers of loss that I speak with- The conversation always begins with, “How are you doing? If only…”
Our children, siblings, spouses, friends and neighbors deserve to have their stories told. We have already mailed “Save The Date” cards to every Senator, Representative, City Council member, Our Governor, Ron DeSantis. Our Mayor, Lenny Curry. Our Sheriff, Mike Williams and other leaders around NE Florida. Along with every media outlet. This event is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Please come and help us honor our children and hopefully help to educate yours.
We have purposely gone out and been building partnerships and friendships with people who feel our pain. We believe you will be surprised at who is here to speak! we believe you’ll be surprised who has decided to honor our loved ones by turning their buildings and businesses purple.
You can help by purchasing a purple light bulb and “leaving the light on” on your front porch or the front of your business.
