EVENT: Purple Purse Challenge 2015
Hello, friends! As you may know, I work for an awesome organization called HopeWorks.
HopeWorks is the sexual, dating and domestic violence center of Howard County, Maryland. We hold a vision of a world where all women and girls are safe and everyone is able to live up to their full potential. We provide critical services to those impacted by domestic and sexual violence while we fight for the justice and transformation in our communities that can eliminate the root causes of violence.
This year, for the second year in a row, HopeWorks will be participating in the Purple Purse Challenge. We have the chance to win $100,000 if we receive the most donations during this year’s Challenge. Last year, we came in 12th out of 120 organizations, raising $27,150, and we know we can do even BETTER this year. We believe we can make it to the top 5 and take home a big prize in addition to your donation. Your help will support our mission to live in a world free of sexual and domestic violence, so please donate to this very important cause. We appreciate any amount you can give. Whether it's $1 or $100, every little bit helps.
Prevention takes an entire community working together – challenging and changing the beliefs, attitudes and culture that allow them to exist. And it takes hope. Hope builds momentum and momentum creates change…when we work together.
We are HopeWorks. Each and every one of us.
