Hello, my name is Karrie Lynn Dymond and I am the Founder of Keep Your Hands 2 Yourself. I am also a survivor of domestic violence, which has given me the strength and courage to speak up & speak out. I will tell my story as we go along in the hope that it helps people know that they are not alone. In the words of Bob Marley “Everything is gonna be alright“.
My desire is to build Keep Your Hands 2 Yourself into a resource that can help others going through difficult times. To let them know that they are not alone and there is someone who understands and wants to help them when they need it the most.
The problem with most domestic violence cases is the fear of having no way to escape. The fear of the unknown future ahead. And for some with children or seniors, that fear is even more intense. These fears are all very common in these horrible situations. We want to try and alleviate some of that fear by offering a safe means of escape and a plan to move forward.
Imagine when all someone has to do is pick up the phone and say “Come and get me right now!” Our Guardians will come and take you to a real safe house. Then we will figure out the next steps TOGETHER. This is just a part of the future for Keep Your Hands 2 Yourself, but, I cannot do it alone.
We need to do something different to help people because what is currently happening isn’t working.
To make change it requires not just one person. Change requires a huge army of heart driven passionate people ready to unite and rally together. Unity eliminates insecurity. Keep Your Hands 2 Yourself has already begun building its Army.
BUT HERE IS THE THING…
I NEED YOU. YES YOU. YOU THERE, LOOKING AT THIS RIGHT NOW! I NEED YOU! WE NEED YOU! OUR COMMUNITY NEEDS YOU TOO!
With all my heart and soul, and everything in me, I promise to lead us to change. I promise I will never give up and we will do everything we can, because everyone deserves to feel safe.
