Face Forward • The mission of Face Forward is to provide physical and emotional reconstruction for women and children who have been victimized by domestic or gang related violence. • Face Forward vows to provide each victim with the best possible treatment pro bono. • Building confidence toward a new beginning.

Founders • Face Forward was founded by renowned plastic surgeon and biochemist Dr. David Alessi and his wife Deborah Alessi CEO of Alessi Skincare. • Both Dr. and Mrs. Alessi have a long history of supporting charitable initiatives and have served several not-for-profit organizations as both board members and benefactors.

About • One in three women globally have been physically abused and approximately half of all murders and disfiguring assaults in major metropolitan areas are gang related. • It is estimated that an act of domestic violence occurs every 15 seconds somewhere in the United States. • That figure translates to over 2.5 million victims per year.

a Patient • Saundra, a Face Forward patient, disfigured after being beaten by her husband, has found new hope. • Our team of skilled surgeons and specialists have been fortunate enough to impact the lives of many with truly life-changing results, but this is just the beginning. • 1 in 4 women experiences domestic violence in her lifetime. We need your help!

Donations • Face Forward is a non-profit organization, a 501(c)(3) registered in the State of California. • Better than 90% of all donations are directed toward victim treatment and recovery. • Since an average patient's treatment costs approximately $5,000, every penny helps.

Corporate Partnership • Charities bring underestimated value companies/brands in corporate partnerships. • Besides social responsibility, generate a positive corporate/ brand image, and help change the lives of so many women and children. • An overwhelming majority of consumers are more likely to buy a product from a company associated with a cause they care about.

Brand Benefits • Enhance consumer loyalty and emotional engagement with your brand. • Engage new audiences; increase sales, brand awareness, as well as shareholder value. • Corporate giving doesn't just create more loyal customers. It also motivates and makes employees feel good. • Corporate philanthropy is good business strategy.
