ASU Sorority Responds to Public Selfie Shaming
By now you've probably seen the video of a group of women from Alpha Chi Omega's ASU Chapter taking selfies at a Diamondbacks' baseball game. The two FOX Sports Arizona TV commentators zoomed in on the young ladies and relentlessly shamed them for taking the photos. I'm not exactly sure where the hostility came from, perhaps these educated and beautiful young women reminded the two TV bozos of the type of women who repeatedly turned them down for dates in their formative years. According to AZCentral, FOX Sports Arizona and the Diamondbacks reached out to the sorority to apologize and offer them free tickets to a game.
How the young women of Alpha Chi Omega responded is what really caught our eye, here is the response from their Facebook page:
Alpha Chi Omega at Arizona State University would like to thank the Arizona Diamondbacks and Fox Sports for reaching out to the chapter after last night’s game and subsequent media frenzy. We appreciate their generous offer of tickets to tonight’s game. However, instead of chapter members attending the game, we have asked the Diamondbacks and Fox Sports to provide tickets to a future game for families at A New Leaf, a local non-profit that helps support victims of domestic violence.
Today, October 1, marks the beginning of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. If everyone who viewed this statement took the time to make a donation in recognition of domestic violence awareness, which is Alpha Chi Omega’s national philanthropy, we would be so grateful! We are happy to have the opportunity to shed some positive light on such a sensitive subject. All proceeds will go directly to A New Leaf to help struggling Arizona families get back on their feet by providing housing, food, childcare and more. You can donate using the link below. We appreciate your support!
Well Ladies, we want to help too! As you're probably aware from your philanthropy, underwear is one of the most needed items at women's shelters. This is because most shelters rely on donations for clothing and most people donate used clothes but, for obvious reasons, shelters don't accept used underwear. So Too Apparel would like to offer the promo code: AlphaChiOmegaASU throughout the month of October. The promo code will be good for 10% off at http://weartoo.com/ and Too Apparel will donate a new pair of undies to A New Leaf's shelter for every pair sold with that promo code. Bravo Alpha Chi Omega on the classy and selfless way you've handled this ridiculous situation.
