BENEFITING: WOMEN FOR WOMEN INTERNATIONAL
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2011
I'm about to do the L.A. Marathon for the third time, but this time I want to do something to raise money for a cause I truly believe in. Women for Women International is an organization I've been a part of since 2003. Women for Women educates and financially supports women as they endeavor to start their own small business and improve their family situations.
As a member, I sponsor a new woman each year that lives in a war-torn country, such as Iraq, Bosnia or Sudan. I write her letters of encouragement as well as send her a small amount each month that goes towards her education and starting her own business. Women for Women helps women get back on their feet and create new economic opportunities for themselves and their families by teaching them valuable skills so that they may earn a good income. Each woman I have sponsored says that the encouragement and support she receives means the world to her and they are so grateful. Please give what you can and thank you so much for helping!
