Zombies support Survivors of Institutional Abuse May 3rd in Times Square

April 4, 2014 by  

The NYC Zombie Crawl is helping to support a great cause, ‘Survivors of Institutional Abuse‘ (SIA) on May 3rd. The theme is ‘Don’t Be A Zombie’ to drive home the point of not being a walking dead when it comes to Teen abuse in these Institutions. We’re helping to coordinate a Zombie Demonstration in Times Square on Saturday, May 3rd from 1-4pm and ask that any zombies who want to volunteer their time meet up with the group in the lobby of the New Yorker Hotel in Times Square at 11am or on the street at 1pm at 46th and Broadway in Times Square. You should arrive already in zombie makeup, but non-zombies are welcome as well. Contact Steven Kimbrough to RSVP and get more details at steven@sia-now.org.

The “Don’t Be A Zombie” Demonstration in Times Square at 46th & Broadway, New York, NY will be on Saturday, May 3rd, 2014 from 1:00pm to 4:00pm, in association with the SIA Convention 2014, scheduled for May 1- 4th, 2014 at the New Yorker Hotel. The event will have private screenings of movies, peer-lead discussion groups, and talks from survivors and supporters of SIA. The aim of SIA to bring awareness and to give each survivor a voice. We stand together – “United as One Voice” Come and let your voice be heard. The SIA Organization is a nonprofit 501c3 dedicated to bring awareness to the subject of Institutional Child Abuse as well as helping survivors on their journey of recovery. You can get info on the organization and events at http://www.sia-now.org

Zombie Blast Energy Shot is also working with us to lend a helping hand for the cause. This new product is not available in many places but you can buy it at a special discounted rate through the NYC Zombie Crawl and the proceeds go towards the SIA cause.
