My organization, HopeWorks, has the chance to win $100,000 if we receive the most donations out of 120 charities by noon eastern time on October 3rd. Here's the deal:
Allstate is sponsoring the Purple Purse Challenge to raise awareness of how financial abuse impacts those experiencing domestic violence and to help organizations like HopeWorks raise the money we need to support survivors. Many victims of domestic violence experience restricted access to money, bank accounts, and important documents. In fact, the lack of access to financial knowledge and resources is the #1 indicator of whether a victim will stay, leave or return to an abusive relationship?
HopeWorks supports individuals and families as they transform their lives during and after abuse. It is so humbling to witness the magic that happens when a client is getting the support she needs to start building the life she wants. We can't make that magic happen without folks like you who give what they can to support our work.
I work at HopeWorks because it's the organization doing the work I love in my local community. This is my life's work. For you, it may be an important cause you care about and want to support in some way. Here's a easy way to do that: give what you can. Your donation can go a long way to remove barriers that stand in the way of someone getting to a safe place:
$10 can provide bus fare for someone to get to work.
$25 can pay the fee to get important identifying documents replaced.
$50 can buy someone an interview outfit so they can get the job they need for independence.
$100 can provide a financial literacy workshop for survivors needing to build their skills.
Every donation counts. And, if you want to do more, you can click that BECOME A FUNDRAISER FOR THIS CHARITY button and almost instantly have your own page to help us win this thing!
Thanks for your support always.
