This year I will have had the privilege of working for the NH Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence for 25 years. And most of you know that 65 years ago, in 1953, my maternal grandmother, Jesse, was shot and killed by her ex-boyfriend shortly after she took out a restraining order against him. He had beaten her, badly, several times. My sister was 4 years old at this time. I never met Jesse.
Many positive changes have been created, and tirelessly worked on for victims since Jesse was taken from us. The Allstate Foundation created funding for victims that directly impact their ability to gain financial independence from abuse. One grant the NH Coalition has been the recipient of for the last year is a matched savings program. Domestic violence survivors who are eligible for this program, and have the ability to save $200, will receive $200 in match funds deposited into her savings account from the grant the Coalition manages.
For the Purple Purse challenge fundraiser this year, running from October 2 through October 31, and I'm asking you to consider making a donation of $25 to honor the work that I've done with the Coalition. Eight donations of $25 each, will be one $200 match for a survivor's savings account. 16 donations of $25 would assist 2 survivors. During this year's fundraiser (the month of October) there will likely be some time-specific, weekly fundraising contests, so please wait for my cue/email if you are considering donating to my Purple Purse campaign. This way your donation will help leverage further funds from the Allstate Foundation to assist survivors, and the work the Coalition does.
Thank you for making the time to read this message. I truly appreciate it. Pam
