As some of you already know, I am currently Development Associate at San Francisco Women Against Rape (SFWAR) as of Oct 2011! This year is SFWAR's 40th year! I am excited to participate in my 3rd Walk Against Rape, my 2nd as a staff person, in 2013!
I am reaching out to ask you to invest in something I am passionately invested in. Walk Against Rape is SFWAR's biggest fundraising event- last year we raised over $55,000, and this year our goal is $60,000! My goal is to raise $1,000 by April 27th, the day of the 8th Annual Walk Against Rape. That's 10 people donating $100, or 20 people donating $50, or 50 people donating $20. I challenge you to DONATE BIG- I am going to match the largest donation! Last year I made this commitment and matched a $150.
All proceeds from the event Walk Against Rape go to SFWAR and it's free services. This non-profit is the only community-based rape crisis center in San Francisco county and provides resources, support, advocacy and education to strengthen the work of all individuals and communities in San Francisco that are responding to, healing from, and fighting to end sexual violence.
Check out www.sfwar.org for more information on the organization and to participate in Walk Against Rape 2013 as we march and rally in San Francisco Saturday, April 27th.
Many thanks for your support. Please forward this to your contacts, and share it on facebook when you contribute to my goal. Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
Lots of Love,
