Ringwood, New Jersey– World Peace Begins at Home is an event that is taking place simultaneously in New Jersey, New York, Detroit, and Texas. Together these events will be a call to action for the people to stand up for what is right and realize that World Peace Begins at Home. In New Jersey the event will be taking place at the fresh water oasis Highlands Natural Pool to raise money for Strengthen Our Sisters 8 women’s shelter across the state. The women will receive a celebrity styled make over, then partake in a fashion show. All guests will be able to partake in raffles of some high end beauty products.

Nearly fifty percent of homeless people are women and children fleeing from abuse in America.  Every 9 seconds a woman is beaten in America and over 8 women and children are beaten to DEATH everyday in America due to abuse. Pick It Up! Pictures are joining efforts with Strengthen Our Sisters to stop Domestic Violence against innocent children and their mothers. To keep these women and children safe we are raising funds to keep 8 shelters from closing. We will also provide these women with a chance to get pampered.

Joining us in this great effort are, Alexa Prisco, star of the hit show Jerseylicious,  and Celebrity Makeup Artist and star of the show Real Beauty Real Women, Jacqui Phillips who will be donating their time and products to give the battered women living in the shelter a fresh new celebrity makeover. TV & ESPN personality Ashley Ray will be co-hosting this event. These are just a few of the wonderful people that will be putting forward a great effort to help this great cause.

When we all join together we can make a greater impact on the world. Let us make that first step. Join us for WORLD PEACE BEGINS AT HOME. RSVP to Ms. Susana Arevalo at searevalo92076@yahoo.com .
