THE STORY:

For the past four years, I have served on the Board of Directors of The HOPE Program, a poverty-fighting organization that empowers men and women to turn their lives around through employment and career advancement. I give generously of my time and resources because I believe in HOPE’s mission. Now, I am pushing my limits by taking on the Spartan Sprint - a 3 mile race with 15 obstacles along the way! I know these obstacles are nothing compared to what HOPE students face, and I'm asking you to support them and me as we succeed in our journeys.

I was introduced to HOPE by Robin Hood Foundation, a leading New York City philanthropy that works with the highest performing nonprofits citywide. So, there's no question about HOPE's strong and measurable impact. What has since struck me is how transformative our work truly is.

I will never forget the story of HOPE graduate, Phumie. She moved to New York from South Africa with her husband. Once they arrived, he became physically and emotionally abusive, cutting her off from all social life and employment opportunities. When she hit her breaking point, she had to flee in a hurry. She had $100, her passport, and the clothes on her back.

Phumie had never traveled to Brooklyn before, but made it to a domestic violence shelter. The shelter referred her to HOPE - where she rebuilt her confidence, developed her first American resume, and had her first work experience in years through HOPE's internship program. She leveraged this experience and HOPE's connections to secure a good job in a leading bank. She now lives independently and is celebrating a recent promotion!

On April 13th, I am running, climbing, crawling and taking on a lot of other challenges for women like Phumie. Will you make a gift to help motivate me through the challenges and change lives?
