BENEFITING: ILLINOIS COALITION AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
ORGANIZER: ILLINOIS COALITION AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
EVENT DATE: Sep 02, 2014
My fundraiser will benefit the Illinois Coalition Against Domestic Violence through the Allstate Foundation's Purple Purse Foundation. I have worked at ICADV for over 17 years and think it is a pretty awesome organization - working to end family violence in Illinois! Even if you are not a victim of domestic violence, someone you know is - your sister, mother, cousin, neighbor, friend, daughter, son. Family violence impacts your family even if it isn't happening in your house.
We all go to work every day hoping to make a difference of some kind. I hope that my going to work makes this state a little safer for Illinois women, men and children! You can help ICADV get closer to achieving that goal by donating through the Purple Purse Challenge! Not only will your funds be used to further ICADV's mission, but the Allstate Foundation has several bonus challenges running throughout September to help ICADV get bonus dollars. The more donors, the more funds we raise, the more chances we have to access those bonus dollars. Do your part now to help make Illinois families safer.
