THE STORY:

Dear all,

As many of you know, my work at HopeWorks is incredibly important to me. Being able to support people whose lives have been impacted by domestic violence and sexual assault is a true privilege. The impact on a person’s life is profound and I am acutely aware that agencies like ours help rebuild hopes, dreams, and futures. Not a day goes by that I am not humbled by the clients with whom I work.

As you know, I rarely put out “asks.” HopeWorks has the chance to win $100,000 if we receive the most donations during this year’s Purple Purse Challenge sponsored by the AllState Foundation to ignite public awareness and fundraising for charities benefiting domestic violence survivors. The charity that raises the most will receive a $100,000 donation. Second place gets $75,000, third gets $50,000, fourth gets $25,000 and 5th-10th each get $10,000. We're out to raise as much as possible so we can continue to provide critical services and support. 

Please consider any donation – none is too big or too small. Thank you for your time and support!
