EVENT: Purple Purse Challenge
On August 1, 2015, I celebrated my 20th anniversary with Family Shelter Service!
To celebrate, I'd like to support my clients and Family Shelter's efforts in a different way: I want to raise $20,000 to celebrate my 20 years in service to survivors of family violence. Together, we have already begun to meet this goal, with generous donations being made since August.
For the whole month of October, which is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, any donations made on my anniversary page will go toward Family Shelter Service's fundraising campaign for the Allstate Foundation's 2015 Purple Purse Challenge. Family Shelter was one of a select group of domestic violence service agencies selected to participate in the Purple Purse Challenge, and we are eligible to win up to $100,000 based upon the funds we raise during October.
I've set my personal October goal for $2,230. Why that number? Because over the past 20 years, I have provided in-person counseling and advocacy services to 2,230 adults and children, and this month, I would like to raise one dollar for each of them.
I look forward to working with the rest of the teams participating in this incredible fundraising experience! Thank you for your support.
