BENEFITING: YWCA OF SAN DIEGO COUNTY
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2013
I’d like to introduce you to three women Lorraine, Randa, and Calli, and let you know how they have changed and transformed their lives.
Lorraine - Before:
Mother of two girls, had been kidnapped and almost killed by her husband.
Today: A minister who is helping others heal their lives, has a special love for teen moms and provides life skills classes to them.
Randa - Before:
At the YWCA shelter after escaping an abusive relationship.
Today: Working on her Masters degree. Foster mom for 3 children who have been abandoned by their drug addicted mother.
Calli - Before:
Homeless alcoholic mother of a young daughter.
Today: Sober for more than a year and has just been promoted from receptionist to legal secretary. A class assignment led to her new job.
What does each of these women have in common?
They are proud graduates of Transformation Leadership!
You can help make this possible for the next 10 women. They are waiting to start the next program in June.
I go to sleep at night and wake up in the morning thinking about these women. They have touched my heart and my life so deeply with their strength, perseverance and determination. Each of them has said that without Leap to Success they would not be where they are today. They wouldn’t have found their belief in themselves, their motivation, and a path forward out of darkness and despair.
The sad reality is that there are hundreds of women here in San Diego who are just like Lorraine, Randa, and Calli that need the tools and skills we provide.
They are ready and waiting for our programs.
Our next Transformation Leadership program is ready to launch, the women are waiting. We need your help to raise $25,000 or more by the end of April to be able to change the lives of 10 women and their families in this year-long life-changing experience.
It costs $2,500 per woman. Will you help sponsor a women?
I know that this is a lot to ask and I know that you have a big heart. I am asking for your support to help the next women who are ready to come out of the darkness and are ready to take the leap to success.
Thank you for your support!
