~Family is not always about a bloodline, but rather a circle of people connected by love, respect and a genuine desire to improve the human condition~

 

Familia de Gladiatores, FGK, actively participates in the local parade circuit with the Gasparilla Krewe community in the greater Tampa Bay area.  The parade season begins in January and runs through April each year and is attended by all full members of the organization and open to the general public.  Participation in the parades is funded by private or corporate sponsors that share the desire to spread the FGK message to the community.  FGK’s participation in the parade scene provides an opportunity to spread their message of hope and recruit dynamic individuals to assist with their cause.

The name, Familia was chosen to identify with the spirit and support of a healthy family bond.  Familia de Gladiatores recognizes that family is not always about a blood line, but rather a circle of people connected by love, respect and a genuine desire to improve the human condition.

Ancient Gladiatores were slaves and other socially marginalized individuals forced to entertain audiences in violent, often barbaric confrontations with other gladiators, wild animals and criminals.

Gladiatores did not live long lives, most dying by the age of 30, and those that fought valiantly and successfully for many years, were awarded a Rudis, a wooden sword symbolizing the gladiator’s newly granted freedom

The wings, also a symbol of freedom, represent one’s desire to rise above challenges, and further, embody hope, enlightenment, guidance and protection from evil. These character traits have often been stolen from a survivor of abuse, but they are characteristics that can be learned and perfected with a commitment to a change in your circumstances and belonging to a strong support group.

Happy Labor Day All!

Do you know why America celebrates this holiday?

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, “Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.” 🇺🇸

Wishing all of you a fun and safe Labor Day! 🍻

What an awesome and rewarding day! 💜@familiadegladiatores was able to present $515.00 in Walmart Gift Cards to @dawncenterhc!! 🙌🏼

The Dawn had recently experienced a small fire which set their sprinklers off and flooded their facility. That left the families seeking shelter at The Dawn without a place to cook and creating more of an urgent situation.
Thanks 🙏🏼 to our GENEROUS members, we were able to help provide some relief and hopefully brought some comfort to those who have found the courage and strength to leave a domestic violence situation 💜

👉🏻DID YOU KNOW? In the State of Florida, According to National Coalition Against Domestic Violence:
• 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner
• On a typical day, domestic violence hotlines nationwide receive approximately 20,800 calls.
• Intimate partner violence accounts for 15% of all violent crime.
• Abusers’ access to firearms increases the risk of intimate partner femicide at least five-fold. When firearms
have been used in the most severe abuse incident, the risk increases 41-fold.
• 72% of all murder-suicides involved an intimate partner; 94% of the victims of these crimes are female.

If you or anyone you know is in crisis, needs counseling or shelter, please reach out to @dawncenterhc and their trained and amazing staff will get you the assistance you may need!
🚨24 Hotline (352)686-8430 OR Call 911 in case of emergency 🚨

Our familia ⚔️ helped out at the Mega Pantry at the HCC Campus this morning for the 10-12 shift! We loaded cars full of fresh fruit, vegetables, canned tuna, and milk. There were 4 lanes to drive up to which had volunteers from churches, schools, and other local organizations.

It was a humbling experience to help our community in need but also a very rewarding one as well! Though it was a hot day, covered in face masks and gloves, mixed with physical labor we still had a lot of fun and found a way to bring smiles to our community 🖤

We look forward to many more opportunities to work with Feeding Tampa Bay throughout the Bay Area!

According to Feeding Tampa Bay,
“This crisis has nearly doubled the unemployment rate in Florida and placed over 1.7 million food insecure individuals in our care. To meet this increased need for food assistance, we have created Mega Pantry distributions. Mega Pantries are equipped to serve over 3,500 families at a time with 175,000 pounds of food – which is 22 times larger than our typical Mobile Pantry distributions.”
