Those of you who know me, know that I've always wanted to change the world. The issues I am most passionate about are those that impact women and girls, particularly gender-based violence. With the Purple Purse Fundraiser, our YWCA can in fact change the world for the better - raising critical funds for programs that empower women, and help them live independent lives free from violence.
Domestic violence does not discriminate - it impacts people regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, economic status, age, ability, and more. The numbers are staggering - domestic violence impacts 1 in every 3 women; more than breast cancer, lung cancer and ovarian cancer combined.
The funds we raise through the Purple Purse Campaign help the YWCA deliver services to more than 7,000 people annually - through emergency shelter, community supported housing, counseling, legal services,crisis intervention, economic empowerment/workforce development, and more. Our programs and services not only directly help and empower women, but also help build a community that works together to end domestic violence. We've been helping people for 95 years - please donate today so that we continue empowering women!
