There are currently no tickets available for this event, but you can still make a donation.


You have the power to foster healing and build safety for child survivors of sexual trauma.

Founded in 2013 by nationally recognized, Black survivor activist, Tashmica Torok, The Firecracker Foundation provides comprehensive services for children who have experienced sexual violence and their families. In the 8 years since TFF was founded, it has gained national attention within the movement to end child sexual abuse for our collective expertise, justice-centered approaches, and survivor-led organizing efforts.

On Thursday, November 18, 2021, from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m., join community leaders, business owners, nonprofit partners, artists, community organizers, activists, donors, and key volunteers as we come together in a virtual celebration of the hard-won progress we’ve made towards a safer, more healed community.

Because of your generosity, you will have a hand in creating a space where more children can declare:

"I'm better because of therapy and I am no longer afraid."

Soulfire is a community awareness project that shares the diversity of survivor experiences through artistic expression. This year, we have transitioned the multimedia art project to highlight digital art that will maximize the impact of the storytelling and increase accessibility for members of our global community. The event will be broadcast LIVE across multiple platforms and include sign language interpretation significantly increasing the number of people who have the opportunity to participate.

We hope you will also make generous pledges to fund key programs and services that will spark healing for children and teens in your hometown.
Get your tickets before they sell out! Tickets are $50 before Oct. 7, $75 if purchased before Nov. 8, and $100 until the day of the event.
Host a house party for 6 or 12 in your own home and we'll send you a special link to join the party LIVE with a custom gift basket to help you celebrate in style!
While we acknowledge our accomplishments, we recognize that we still could be doing so much more and that's where you come in.

Thank you so much,

Carolyn Abide, Tara Scott-Miller, and Tashmica Torok


All tickets purchased for this event will directly fund the holistic healing services that The Firecracker Foundation provides for children, youth, and their families.
