Gravity FC Raising awareness and funds for CHILD ABUSE & DOMESTIC VIOLENCE through MMA events.
Child abuse is more than bruises and broken bones.
Child abuse is more than bruises and broken bones. While physical abuse might be the most visible, other types of abuse, such as emotional abuse and neglect, also leave deep, lasting scars. The earlier abused children get help, the greater chance they have to heal and break the cycle—rather than perpetuate it. By learning about common signs of abuse and what you can do to intervene, you can make a huge difference in a child’s life.
Domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone, yet the problem is often overlooked, excused, or denied. This is especially true when the abuse is psychological, rather than physical. Noticing and acknowledging the signs of an abusive relationship is the first step to ending it. No one should live in fear of the person they love. We here at GRAVITY FC intend to do all we can to help raise awareness and funds to eradicate these issues.
WHO ARE WE?
GRAVITY FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP is a new company incorporated for the sole purpose of raising awareness and funds for victims of CHILD ABUSE and DOMESTIC Violence.
Some companies use Concerts and Fund Raising Dinners to raise awareness for charities and causes they believe in and want to support.
GRAVITY FC is basically doing the same thing only difference is we will host quality MMA events in order to reach our goal and support of causes.
WHAT IS OUR GOAL?
To raise $1,000,000 USD to go towards various charities already combating CHILD ABUSE & DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.
HOW WILL WE DO THIS?
We will set aside a portion of profit from each of our MMA events to go towards our goal of reaching $1,000,000 USD. We understand that this will be a long term commitment by our company but we believe with support from the wider community we will achieve this no matter how long it takes and not matter how many MMA shows we need to host.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
We are asking for donations to raise $25,000 USD to go towards hosting our first event. This will make up only a fraction of the cost involved in putting on an MMA event. GRAVITY FC will be making up the difference.

WHO & WHAT IS GRAVITY
GRAVITY is a new Mixed Martial Arts company which is solely created for the purpose of bringing awareness and saving funds for various Child Abuse and Domestic Violence Charities worldwide.
MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) is the world’s fastest growing sport with fans numbering in the millions and MMA athletes both amateur and professional numbering in the thousands.
Imagine a company that organizes MMA events with the sole purpose of raising awareness and $1,000,000 in funds to fight Child Abuse and Domestic Violence.
Many of you might find it hard to correlate a company that organizes MMA events to an anti-abuse campaign but we are here to show the world that the fighters and fans of MMA do not actually find pleasure in seeing Violence towards innocent children and women, on the contrary it is after all human nature to compete against one another, and that’s what the Sport of MMA is all about, measuring techniques knowledge and physical readiness.
In the sport of MMA there are rules we abide by, whereas in most of the physical abuse cases there are no rules and victims experience something far worse than any of the professional fighters ever will in a cage.
Victims are often incapable of fighting back or resisting in any way. When we see or hear someone experiencing this wrongdoing, we understand that it is up to us to act and put a stop to it, but we cannot act alone, yes we can make a change on a small scale but why stop there? Why not dream bigger and combine the fast growth of MMA to our advantage and bring awareness to eradicating Child abuse and Domestic Violence.
Our GOAL with YOUR HELP is to awaken as many other individuals, teams, organizations and even governments to pay more attention to this problem and instead of just turning a blind eye actually assist in fixing these problems at the core.
Join us now, be a part of something that will bring change to the world we all live in and share.
WHAT WE NEED & WHAT YOU GET
We need help in reaching our goal of raising $1,000,000 USD to go towards Child Abuse and Domestic Violence Charities.
We will do this by allocating money from each event held to various charities in the communities that our events are held. We will also update on our facebook page the $ amount that we have saved towards our goal of $1,000,000 USD.
We recognize that to really make an impact and raise awareness and funds to eradicate Child Abuse and Domestic Violence we need the support of the MMA and wider community to make this possible.
We need to raise $25,000 for the first GRAVITY MMA event to be held in Mcminnville Tennessee. This event will be streamed worldwide.
GRAVITY FC has already spent thousands of dollars to make this possible.
The $25,000 USD raised for this first event will go towards hosting the event. Below is a list of things the $25,000 will help pay for.
Production Cost. $10,000
Venue Hire. $3,000
Athletes and Talent $10,000
Event insurance $3,000
Compulsory Government fee’s $2,000
Amateur Sanctioning Body Fee’s $1,000
As you can see the $25,000 USD we are trying to raise for our first event is only to assist us in hosting a quality event. The difference will be completely paid for by GRAVITY FC Company.
The profit from ticket sales, online pay per view and merchandise will be allocated towards our GOAL of $1,000,000 USD which will go towards Child Abuse and Domestic Violence Charities.
We do not intend to raise $1,000,000 USD from only one event although this would be GREAT.
The amount of events we intend to hold to reach our goal of $1,000,000 USD will depend on the support we get from the MMA community as well as the wider community.
