HAMPTON ROADS, Va. – Two women in Hampton Roads are making a powerful impact through VB Strong decals that are helping raise money for the 12 people who lost their lives in the Virginia Beach mass shooting last Friday.
The decals made through the organizational efforts of Sarah Lacy Stiles and her friend Stacy Poole have already raised $800 in about a 24-hour span and cost only $10.
$8 out of the $10 sticker goes toward the Virginia Beach Tragedy Fund partnering with the United Way of South Hampton Roads (the additional $2 is for supplies for making the stickers).
“We are cutting each individual decal so turnaround time is a few days but we are working to get them in the mail asap,” said Stiles in a post.
The City of Virginia Beach said while they appreciate the community’s support, they are reminding people that the city seal and the city logo (the VB wave mark) are both copyrighted images and are not to be used on any items sold by anyone unaffiliated with city government.
