BENEFITING: YOUNG WOMENS CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION
EVENT DATE: Nov 19, 2012
On November 16, I will be turning 25!
In honor of this momentous occasion, I will be raising funds for HealingSpace Sexual Violence Resource Center of the YWCA of Bergen County. I'm asking that everyone with a full time job donate at least $10 and everyone in school donate at least $5.
Women are still the main targets of sexual violence. It is estimated that 9.9% of women in NJ have been raped at some point in their lives. In Bergen County, approximately 10% have been raped. However, these estimates are conservative since sexual assault victims are often hesitant to report the assault.
Your donation will help provide crisis intervention, counseling, support, and safety to victims of sexual assault!
**You'll notice that the funds donated via this website go to the YWCA of Bergen County. However, I have coordinated this fundraiser with the YWCA and HealingSpace (a program within the YWCA) to ensure that all funds go directly to HealingSpace.

Thank you for making my birthday meaningful!
