THE STORY:

Hi Everyone!! So the Domestic Violence Agency I work for has been selected to participate in the Allstate Purple Purse Challenge. Short version....the more money we raise as an organization - the more chances we have to be awarded grant money.  And the more money I raise an an employee....the better chance I have of getting a extra day off! (How nice would that be.....) 

I work for The Retreat because of the work they do...I CHOOSE to work here. Why - because I have seen the advocates helping women with orders of protection and the counselors helping their clients and children to find their smiles...I have seen the little ones running around the shelter...and I know - all of this is provided free of charge  - so that our clients can focus on healing and growing and being the person we know they are!

So thank you!!! xoxo  Every bit helps! 

Debbie

How does the Purple Purse Challenge Work?

The Allstate Foundation is offering up to $500,000 in total prizes for organizations that compete in the challenge as Community Partners. The 5 Community Partners that raise the most funds are eligible for grand prize donations and every organization has the chance to win up to $80,000 by participating in weekly challenges hosted by CrowdRise, a fundraising website that makes it simple to spread the word and collect donations through personal networks. At the end of the Challenge, all funds raised on behalf of The Retreat will go directly to our organization regardless of where the organization places in the Challenge!

2nd place: $75,000

3rd place: $50,000
