October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Throughout October we’ll not only be providing daily facts to better inform you about DV, but we’ll also introduce you to some pretty fly #ChicksNKicks who laced up to spread the word right along with us.

"I feel like we go through really traumatic experiences that help us grow into better people. I've taken steps to overcome those experiences and now, I can look back and be thankful because it put me on a path towards my purpose." - Crissy Henderson

One such chica is Crissy Henderson. Crissy is a model, actress, devoted mother, and founder of Willow Grace Beauty - a new beauty line for which empowers, supports, and encourages women of all ages to find supreme comfort in their own skin. Crissy is also a survivor of domestic violence. After enduring a relationship rife with emotional, mental, and physical abuse Crissy embraced a brighter future and her role as an advocate for anyone who suffered from similar experiences. After gaining some traction with the release of the Willow Grace Lip Plump, Crissy prepares to present the Willow Grace Fall Collection to world and help raise awareness in the process by donating a portion of all Willow Grace proceeds to the Genesis Women's Shelter.

Watch below as Crissy shares her story, smiles for a selfie (or 3) in her Adidas Element Refine, and spreads the purple for #DVAM2014
