Women for Women is officially one year old, and we are overwhelmed by our members’ generosity and advocacy. Here’s a quick re-cap of where we’ve donated our first year.
International Justice Mission: $4,000.00, plus monthly supporters
Embrace Grace: $2,100.00
womenforwomen10challenge: over $200.00 given to various charities
Soundview Pregnancy Center: Team Women for Women raised over $1500 at the Walk for Life
Long Island Against Domestic Violence: $1735.00
Redefined Courage: $250.00
This means we have raised $11,925.52 to benefit women all over the world this year!
In addition, our amazing members have taken on donating feminine hygiene products to food banks, given food and money to support a local food pantry during the covid-19 crisis, and shed light on the issues women are facing all over the world through sharing our posts, talking to friends, and advocating for these issues. The intangible things – increased awareness, different perspective, eyes open to the need around us – cannot be measured, but we see how they’ve grown in all of us this year.
We know this is just the beginning – thank you for joining us on this journey!
