THE STORY:

Dear all,

As many of you know, the field of domestic violence is dear to me. Being able to support people whose lives have been impacted by domestic violence and sexual assault is a true privilege. The impact of this trauma on a person’s life and well-being is profound and I am acutely aware that agencies like HopeWorks help rebuild hopes, dreams, and futures. I feel deep gratitude to be able to help those in need of this support.

As you know, I never put out “asks.” The AllState Foundation is sponsoring the Purple Purse Challenge to ignite public awareness and fundraising for charities benefiting domestic violence survivors. HopeWorks is the only non-profit in Maryland to participate this year. The charity that raises the most throughout the Challenge will receive a $100,000 donation. Second place gets $75,000, third gets $50,000, fourth gets $25,000 and 5th-10th each get $10,000. We're out to raise as much money as possible so we can continue to provide critical services and support. 

Please consider any donation – none is too big or too small.

Thank you for your time and support!
