THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Family,

On November 6, I am taking on one of the biggest challenges of my life this year - running in the 2011 ING New York City Marathon. For the next six months I will be training hard as a member of Team NYAWC to run 26.4 miles. I am also committing to fundraise at least $2,500 to benefit the New York Asian Women’s Center (NYAWC), the first East Coast organization to help women in the Asian community challenge domestic violence and human trafficking.

NYAWC has made a difference in the lives of abused women, like Maggie.Five years ago, Maggie was scrubbing the floor when her husband took a kitchen knife and sliced into the back of her neck. Through the years, Maggie stayed with her husband because, as a recent immigrant, she did not know what else to do. But, she knew that her two children were affected. Both witnessed their father’s murderous attempts. And, on another occasion, her young son had been forced to see his father have sex with another woman.

 

With help from NYAWC, Maggie successfully obtained an Order of Protection, child custody, child support, public assistance, and compensation as a crime victim. The public assistance benefits supplement her income from her job at a laundromat. She continues to live at home with her son and daughter, while NYAWC services help her family cope with the effects of her husband’s abuse as she continues to establish her own business and further solidify her security and self-sufficiency.

 

Today, I kindly ask you to make a 100% tax-deductible donation to help victims of domestic violence and human trafficking live free from violence.My first milestone is to raise $550 by July 15, 2011.

You can donate online to my Crowdrise fundraising site. Or you could write a check payable to the New York Asian Women’s Center and send it to me, as well as ask your employer for a matching gift on my behalf before sending it to me.

 

Thank you so much for your generous support and I hope to see you at the finish line in November.

 

Sincerely,

Rameliza Ratio
