BENEFITING: HOUSE OF RUTH INC
ORGANIZER: HOUSE OF RUTH INC
To my Family and Friends,
This year I have the privilege of serving on the Board for the House of Ruth. House of Ruth is a none profit agency that provides services to individuals affected by domestic violence, free of charge. In order to continue to meet the demand for services, we would like to raise $100,000 to support our existing programs. House of Ruth’s mission is two-fold: (1) To advocate for and assist women and children victimized by domestic violence and children exposed to violence in transforming their lives by providing culturally competent shelter, programs, opportunities, and education; and (2) To contribute to social change through intervention, education, prevention programs and community awareness.
House of Ruth has been chosen to participate in The Purple Purse Challenge, sponsored by the Allstate Foundation, competing against 150 domestic violence agencies nationwide. Why the Purple Purse? The primary reason domestic violence survivors stay in an abusive relationship is they don’t have the financial resources to break free. The Purple Purse Challenge is here to raise awareness about domestic violence and financial abuse!
We are launching a fundraising campaign and I am seeking your support. Here's how you can help! A donation of $10.00 or more would be very much appreciated as we are working to raise $100,000.00 by October 3rd. If House of Ruth can get 1,000 friends to raise $100 WE WILL HIT OUR GOAL of raising $100,000 in 4 weeks! If we win first place, the Allstate Foundation will award us a $100,000 prize!! That could mean $200,000 for the House of Ruth!
I am very passionate about providing assistance to survivors of domestic violence and am asking your help to support the organization in reaching our goal! Thank you for being in my circle of family and friends.
This Challenge BEGINS 9/2 and ends 10/3! That's only a small window, so let's get busy!! Tell your friends. Tell your family. Tell your community. I know we can do this! So, what can YOU do today?
