BENEFITING: Sanctuary for Families
It's my party and I'll fundraise if I want to.
My birthday is April 5th and this year, especially with federal funds for programs combatting domestic violence being threatened, I'm hoping to fight back by raising money for Sanctuary for Families. What's the point of celebrating another year on this planet if you're going to let the planet be a garbage fire, right?
Sanctuary is New York City's largest, most comprehensive service provider for victims of gender-based violence, largely focused on the two most relevant problems in our community-- domestic violence and sex trafficking-- and the surrounding problems victims of the two face.
Sanctuary's services and resources include: Crisis and Transitional Shelters, Parenting Support, Counseling (Family, Group, Individual, and Crisis), Legal services, Economic Empowerment, Outreach and Training, Anti-Trafficking Initiatives, and Educational Advocacy. Basically, they have everything covered in terms of addressing the issues at all points in the cycle.
Please consider donating $10 (or more! or less!) to Sanctuary in order to help women and families in the New York City area break free from cycles of abuse and poverty.
