THE STORY:


This month I am raising money to help my wife's incredible nonprofit, FreeFrom, win $100,000 from the Allstate Foundation. 


Each week for the next 4 weeks, I am giving away 1 free natal chart reading with me and 2 runners up prizes of my 2018 new moon courses (all 12!). 


In other words, each week I will give away 3 prizes: 

1. 1 natal chart reading; and

2. 2 sets of all 12 new moon courses for 2018.


That's 4 free readings up for grabs. And 8 runners up will win all 12 of my 2018 new moon courses. 


Everyone who makes a donation of $10 or more will be entered to win in the week they donate. Donate each week and you'll have 4 chances to win! 


PLEASE NOTE:  


To be counted, you must donate on this page (not the main FreeFrom page).


Please enter an email address that you check regularly! Otherwise, you might never find out that you won a reading with me!


Week 2 winners will be notified on Monday October 15th at 8pm PT. 


Natal chart readings will take place in January.

FreeFrom is incredibly grateful to be competing in the Allstate Foundation's Purple Purse campaign to win $100,000 this month.

With your help, FreeFrom came 2nd in last year's challenge. Your donations and the prize money we won helped FreeFrom open its doors, hire 5 staff members, and help survivors in more than 18 states gain economic justice and financial independence.

We are so excited to see what we can do with your help this year! 

FreeFrom was founded to fill a gap: there are no resources readily available to survivors of domestic violence to help them build long-term safety for themselves and their children. 

Here are a few things we are working on:

We are currently working with 30 survivors of domestic violence in 3 cities to build their own small businesses and achieve financial independence through self-employment. 100% of our clients make a profit in the first month of their businesses being operational. None of our clients have returned to their abuser. In 2018, we want to expand our program to serve 180 survivors in 5 cities. 

We are building an online self-help compensation tool to help survivors across the country win economic justice. Survivors will be able to learn what their compensation options are (e.g. small claims court, criminal restitution, victims of crime funding, civil suit) and how to pursue them in their state.

We are building a program to help survivors repair their credit through financial coaching, credit-building loans, and policy reform. 

Thank you for supporting our work and believing in our vision of a world in which everyone can afford to be safe.
