KAREN MASHEK's Fundraising Page

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.

Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too! is their website. Please take the time to read about TESSA and get acquainted with whom you are donating to!

Tessa's mission is to help women and their children achieve safety and well-being while challenging communities to end sexual and family violence.

My name is Karen.

As a woman, I feel very strongly about Domestic Violence in all its forms: physical, sexual, psychological, you name it...So, one day, I wondered what I could do to help a good, local cause and recently decided to shave my hair off for this charity! T.E.S.S.A. is based here in Colorado Springs, Colorado and has an office in Calhan too.

On the subject of hair: It took ages for me to grow it out as it used to be very short, therefore this is going to be tough...After all, a woman's hair is her crowning glory....*gulp*...right?!

The beauty of this is that it'll all grow back leaving no lasting effects other than a sense of pride in having been able to convince you all to donate, even if only $5.00, to a cause that does sadly leave lasting effects on those affected.

No guilt trips here, the amount will not be displayed. It's the thought that counts.

Thank you so much for your generosity!

P.S. Oh, the "shearing" is set for the first week in April 2008. It will be filmed and pictures will be taken too.

Love & hugs,
