THE STORY:

I feel like every time I open my news apps or watch the news I hear about another tragic sexual assault on a female in India. As the Christmas season is approaching I thought it would be a good idea to spend my gift money on a cause rather than material items. I feel very passionately about protecting women, so the vast amount of media reporting on the women of India became my focus for contributing. Unfortunately I could not find a single fundraising cause dedicated to raising money for the support, relief, necessary health and therapeutic procedures, or justice of these women. Therefore, I have decided to create my own fundraising site in order to not only help these women, but contribute to the awareness of this topic, as well as send a message that what is happening in India is not ok and these girls matter.

For anyone interested in learning more about this topic there are many sites that you can search to view statistics and stories, including:
