The Author

Special thank you to Sheila Darcey, author of Sketch by Sketch: The Creative Path to Emotional Healing and Transformation, for taking us on this journey.

Sheila created Sketch by Sketch during a difficult time in her life where she found that the act of sketching and freestyle drawing was an impactful way to process what she was feeling.

One simple sketch became a daily practice and developed into a meditative and therapeutic tool that she’s now taught and shared with thousands of people.

The Beneficiary

At our core, BRA was founded on the principle that we are stronger as a collective than as individuals.

That’s why we took action and chose to donate a portion of proceeds from this event to the Equality Texas Foundation; a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to advancing

the rights of LGBTQIA+ people and fighting anti-LGBTQIA+ legislation in Texas. Learn more about Equality Texas and the Equality Texas Foundation here.

We at BRA are here to support and lift ALL women and girls – period – and vehemently disagree with the infringement of human rights. #ProtectTransKids

We are thrilled that BRA was able to raise $1,800 for the Equality Texas Foundation on Transgender Day of Visibility! BRA Network is all about community, and now more than ever the Transgender community needs our support.

If you’d like to contribute further to their cause, donate directly here.
