We Are On The Rise! THANK YOU for your support <3

It’s hard to believe that it is already October! This month is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.  Appropriately, Phoenix is making great progress, and I want to share some updates with you. 

We have had an exciting close to Q3 and are now gearing up for an action packed Q4.

Here's some of what we have in the pipeline:

  • The Phoenix invite only Beta will go LIVE this quarter; you can sign up here to join our community. We invite you to invite other users, as well.

  • Phoenix has a new collab with FemPower Beauty, as seen on Good Morning America and recently named "Best Lipstick for Everything" by Marie Claire! As part of their giveback model, FemPower will donate lipsticks to any interested  Phoenix user, and Phoenix will be featured on the FemPower website and social media periodically to help raise awareness of our platform.  

  • We also have a give back campaign with Modern Theory, a female-founded premium producer of sustainably made candles and home products.  They will be donating five percent of proceeds from two of the candles in their new WomanKind product line to Phoenix. Here’s the link – please share this with your friends! 

  • Our Founder, Melissa, has been featured on panels at The Wing, in a salon event hosted by Maxie McCoy, and attended, by invitation, leading designer Rebecca Minkoff's Female Founder Collective Workshop in Los Angeles.  Melissa was also selected as the San Francisco/ Bay Area Collective Founder for GirlBoss, a digital community for ambitious women, in their own words. 

  • We are also nearly halfway to our crowdfunding goal of $10,000 on iFundWomen!

  • We are in discussions with The National Domestic Violence Hotline to offer Phoenix users immediate access to trauma and crisis support through their nationwide crisis support hotline, the only 24x7 hotline in the US for victims and survivors. 


As we move into this next quarter, our biggest objective is to launch the invite-only beta of the Phoenix trauma support community and begin building our user base. 


We have Phoenix events in the works to increase visibility and attract early users. Stay tuned for our pop-up with The Phluid Project and FemPower Beauty in New York, a healing circle at The Luminary Farm, and a special breakfast at The Wing SF.


We are also excited to share that we have leading trauma and recovery practitioners coming onto Phoenix. We will be featuring these leaders in the Phoenix platform with #AskMeAnythings (AMAs), to connect survivors in real time to recovery experts. 


Thank you for being an early champion of Phoenix – your support means the world to us!


Let's Rise Together.
