Vote for DAWN to win the Give a Brand Project!


Deaf Abused Women's Network (DAWN) has been selected as one of the top three finalists for “Give a Brand!” project by Thinkso organization. Thinkso is a Manhattan-based design firm that rebrands one small nonprofit organization for free. DAWN is eligible to win a full brand makeover including a new logo and website! This is a great way to celebrate DAWN’s 10th year anniversary of providing services this year with a new makeover!

Over the years, DAWN has served over 300 Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and Deaf Blind survivors who have experienced domestic violence, sexual violence, and stalking. One of the main reasons we are shifting DAWN’s appeal is because many deaf Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) survivors and male survivors are apprehensive about receiving services as they think DAWN only serves women due to the organization name. Please help DAWN become more inclusive by voting for us to win a free makeover.

Winning this competition will greatly help the organization grow and expand its services. They need your vote to win! The voting starts today and ends on July 4th.  Please vote daily. It is a breeze to vote for and only takes a few seconds. Here is how:

1. Go to

2. Vote for DAWN

3. Spread the word and pass the link to your friends, family, colleagues, and everyone you know!

The Board, Staff, and the people DAWN serves in the community would greatly appreciate your support in this movement. Community support from DAWN's closest friends and supporters like you is important!
