Welcome to the OFFICIAL fundraising page of Amy Meldau. I'm soooo glad you made it this far!
If you're not already convinced to donate, I hope this message gets you there!
As the daughter of a nurse, I grew up thinking that I also wanted to provide healing to people who were sick or hurting. Then I discovered the profession of social work! In college, I started volunteering with the children who were homeless and had fled with their mothers to the safehouse shelter to escape their abusive fathers and partners. I was lucky to be raised in an environment where intimate partner violence was foreign to me, so these family's stories were heart breaking.
Seeing their hurt was when I knew that my healing work was the healing not of physical bruises and diseases, but healing of the heart and mind.
Healing the wounds left from domestic violence and sexual assault have been what I've devoted my career to for the last 5 years. Our neighbors and loved ones need us because violence and assaults are no respector of person-- it effects everyone regardless of our gender, ethnicity, sexuality, or income. It creeps in and terrorizes its victims' sense of self, safety, intimacy, control, and trust. It is all of our jobs to help eradicate this terrible "disease" from our society...
... So how can you help?
My organization, HopeWorks, has the chance to win $100,000 if we receive the most donations out of 120 charities by noon eastern time on October 3rd. Please help us win this! These funds will be an AMAZING help to our small nonprofit!
Allstate is sponsoring the Purple Purse Challenge to raise awareness especially of how financial abuse impacts those experiencing domestic violence and to help organizations like mine raise the money we need to support survivors.
So even if you can only afford to give $10, please donate (to MY fundraising page!).
Thanks and BLESS your heart for reading this! ;^)
