Boalties for FreeFrom

THE STORY:

FreeFrom is a groundbreaking organization started by Sonya Passi '13. It is the first and only organization of its kind that is focused on long-term solutions to domestic violence. FreeFrom is in the running to win $100,000 if they can raise the most money on Crowdrise out of 90 participating organizations by October 25th. If it's one thing us Boalties know how to do, it is band together. Especially for justice. Especially for one of our own who is fighting for justice.

Please consider making a donation of $10, $20 or $50 to help FreeFrom. 

Thank you!

Without a way to rebuild financially, survivors typically won’t leave an abuser. If they do, they risk homelessness, losing custody of their children, or having to return to their abuser. Often, survivors will visit shelters several times but never actually be able to afford to leave for good or build safe lives for themselves and their children. 

That’s where FreeFrom comes in. We’re looking past crisis intervention to violence prevention, by helping survivors achieve financial stability so that they can leave and never have to go back. This is how we will break the cycle of violence against women in the US. 

From September 28th - October 25th, we are participating in the Allstate Foundation’s Purple Purse campaign, a fundraising challenge that is exclusively open to domestic violence organizations. The organization that raises the most money through Crowdrise during this 4 week challenge will win $100,000. 

Here’s what we would do with the money if we won: 

1. Launch our national civil legal program that will, for the very first time, provide survivors with the opportunity to hold their abusers financially accountable. Domestic violence costs $8.3Bn annually, and survivors bear the brunt of this burden. It’s time to put the responsibility back on the abuser. 

2. Launch our entrepreneurship program in four cities, to help survivors to start their own small businesses. We’ll offer business plan consulting, marketing training, mentorship, counseling, branding, legal services, and seed funding to help survivors get their businesses off the ground and to a point of self-sufficiency.

Help us unleash the potential that survivors have not just to survive, but to thrive.

Thanks so much for reading, sharing, and donating :)
