Safeline is an independent charity that helps prevent sexual violence and abuse and provides free, specialist, support, for anyone affected including friends and family. It provides support throughout England and Wales.
Safeline is always looking for creative ways to fundraise and raise awareness about sexual violence and abuse. So, when you have a talented contemporary, artist like Daniela Raytchev as an ambassador for your charity, why wouldn’t you want to use her talent to do this in a cool way.
The ‘BREATHE’ t-shirt brings together great, original art in support of an incredible cause.
The artwork reflects Daniela’s interpretation of the healing and recovery process. The word ‘BREATHE’ dominates the piece: she feels the word is very relevant to the charity and the cause because it’s an important part of the healing process for anyone who has experienced trauma.
The message she is trying to convey, is that no matter how overwhelmed people might feel at the present moment, if we sometimes just step back, pause, breathe, and release, things can pass and we are able to get through so much more than we think we are capable of.
The t-shirt has been produced to raise awareness about the charity and the issue itself. Both Safeline and Daniela believe society has a responsibility to create an open and honest environment where people feel safe to talk about what’s happened to them and get help and not feel ashamed or stigmatized.
Show your support for the 1 in 5 women and 1 in 6 men who have experienced sexual violence and abuse in the UK, by buying a ‘BREATHE’ t-shirt, 100% of all profits will go towards helping to prevent abuse, or supporting those affected.

Daniela Raytchev is Slovakian/ Bulgarian contemporary artist currently residing in London, United Kingdom.
Raytchev’s personal experience and observation of human psyche have been a continuous source of inspiration for her work. Her paintings and sculpture are bold, at times ironic and feminine yet feminist. Raychev’s work depicts conflicts within, enquires about social stigmas, especially with regards to mental health and equal rights, and promotes honesty and positive message that change is possible.
Daniela has been Safeline Charity ambassador since August 2020. You can read about her and her support of Safeline here:
