We partnered with this powerful non-profit organization to raise funds for their essential work. With our partner Marissa Ghavami, who founded Healing TREE in 2014, we worked to bring their beautiful and star-studded event to viewers around the world. In addition to raising awareness of Healing TREE’s crucial work bringing trauma-focused resources and education to those who need it most and partnering with film and theater makers to amplify stories and knowledge of those healing from abuse and trauma, we helped to expand the reach of their gala in order to raise funds to increase their impact on survivors and the professionals working with them.

Healing TREE (Trauma Resources, Education & Entertainment) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that advocates healing from abuse and trauma rather than coping with the symptoms, in order to transform lives and, ultimately, society. We achieve this by providing trauma-focused resources and education and by producing and partnering with relevant film, television, and theatre, empowering the social change necessary to create a healing movement.
