BENEFITING: Break the Cycle
My fundraiser is in conjunction with the Purple Purse campaign that Break the Cycle has going on. Break the Cycle is an organization that empowers youth to have healthy relationships. The Purple Purse campaign is meant to help financially empower women who have suffered financial abuse in their relationship. My mother suffered financial abuse, and watching that as a young man I wanted to help fight against her struggle. She managed to send two kids to college, but she had some help. I want to do my part to help that single mom with higher aspirations for her child than she had for herself. Paying it forward.
