BENEFITING: Rose Brooks Center, Inc.
ORGANIZER: Rose Brooks Center, Inc.
EVENT: Purple Purse Challenge
When I first started looking for an organization that I could focus on with my time and support, I had three criteria: I wanted to focus on children's issues, I didn't want to support a "band-aid" solution to the issue, and I wanted to believe that the organization I was supporting could address the issue better than any other in our local community.
When a coworker invited me to tour Rose Brooks, my first thought was "a women's shelter isn't what I'm looking for". Then I started researching and realized how wrong that thought was! I toured the facility and was thrilled to be invited to join the board. I am proudly serving in my fourth year.
So here is my challenge for you....do your own research. Find out why this organization was everything I was looking for. Once you do, I think you'll be proud to support them too. I'll send tidbits each week to highlight the things that spoke to me particularly. My first tidbit is find out what Project SAFE is all about.
No matter what you do, thank you for all that you do for this organization and the others you choose to support!
