THE STORY:

Hey friends,
I am on the board of FreeFrom, a national non-profit that helps survivors of domestic violence escape abusive situations. We are incredibly fortunate to be competing for a $100,000 cash prize and we need your help!

The #1 reason survivors of abuse aren't able to leave is because they can't afford to. On top of physical and emotional abuse, 98% of survivors are subject to financial abuse -- identity fraud that destroys their credit, being forced out of employment or being denied access to money.

Sonya Passi, the founder of FreeFrom, and her band of lawyers will help represent these survivors in court, pro-bono. And Sonya called on me to help think of ways to give survivors access to a second chance through entrepreneurship.

I've spent the past 5 years working closely with startups. I've seen how empowering it can be to start your own company and I'd love to give survivors a chance to take their future in their own hands and start their own businesses. We believe that survivor-owned businesses will create jobs and opportunities for other women looking for economic independence.

From today through October 25, I'll be helping Sonya and FreeFrom raise funds. We’re competing against 90 other amazing domestic violence organizations and the organization that raises the most money will win $100,000 so your donation’s leverage is potentially huge! If we win this $100,000, we’ll be able to pilot our entrepreneurship program for survivors in San Francisco, Oakland, Los Angeles, and New York.

I'd be honored if you joined me in helping give opportunity to women who need it most. Even $5 will help grant a survivor a new start. As FreeFrom progresses, I'll share the stories of the survivors with you. Thank you!!!
