BENEFITING: CHICAGO METROPOLITAN BATTERED WOMENS NETWORK
ORGANIZER: CHICAGO METROPOLITAN BATTERED WOMENS NETWORK
As most of you know I'm a Cubs fan and a member of the board of directors for Chicago Metropolitan Battered Women's Network. The Network does an amazing job helping individuals and their families handle domestic violence and keep them safe. We run the state hotline and handle approximately 24,000 calls a year. We are in the court system trying to make judges, prosecutors, and police better at handling domestic violence court cases. We train other agencies in best practices. All of this comes at a significant cost. Will you help me run these programs?
I am donating $100 for every save Cubs pitcher (and domestic violence abuser) Arolidis Chapman gets in the month of October. I'm asking you to donate $10 for every save he gets. We can celebrate history with a World Series and help an amazing cause simultaneously.
