BENEFITING: W CONNECTION INC
"My daddy died five years ago. He died suddenly while we were playing together
at the beach. I was six years old. I miss him everyday, but especially on Father’s
Day “ --Gabrielle 11 years old.
Father’s Day is a wonderful holiday to celebrate how special dads are in a child’s life. Yet, for the thousands of children like Gabrielle who have tragically lost their fathers, Father’s Day is a painful reminder of what they once had. In these families, it is the widowed mom who now holds the job of both mother and father. As the sole parent, widowed mothers are the one person in the lives of their children who provide help, guidance and unconditional love. If you have ever met one of these women, you know how amazing they are. Father’s Day is the perfect day to honor them.
There are over 11 million widows in this country and there are very limited programs and services available to them. The W Connection is making an important difference in the lives of this large segment of our population. The W Connection provides widows with a one stop internet based resource center and a national network of community based chapters. Each new community based chapter we open costs our organization $10,000 and provides ongoing support to hundreds of women in each of these communities. Please join us and fund a portion of a chapter so that we can continue to meet the ever increasing demand for our services. Every dollar raised will go directly to program expansion and helping a widow.
