My first job out of college was in New York working as a fundraiser to raise money for various issues, one of which was domestic violence.  The lack of shelters available in the city at that time was really frightening. 

I was working the phone bank one night and a call came in at the front desk.  I picked up the receiver to hear a woman asking me for help - her husband was beating her and she had managed to get away to make this call.  I told her she needed to call the police -now sounding even more terrified she said she had to get off the phone and hung up.

I will never forget that feeling of complete helplessness.  Last-call return didn't work and no Caller ID back then.  I barely slept that night, wondering if she was ok or even still alive.

It was one of those experiences that just stays with you.  I've thought about her from time to time over the years and know that there are countless other women and men who live in fear every day.  

I'm grateful for groups like Safe Passage that are there to help those who are lucky enough to get out.

Hope you all had a good holiday.  Just wanted to take another minute and thank everyone who has donated so far.  I know that many of you are living check-to-check and struggling just to get by and yet you still give.  It is truly incredible.

Well, we're in the homestretch now with just another week to go.  $1000, here we come!!


Thanks again and take care!!

Hi everyone,

I am totally reinvigorated after last night's $500 donation.  Did some sprints in the backyard this morning.  Not a pretty sight - thankfully we have just a few neighbors/witnesses.  My thanks again to last night's donor!!!

Initially I thought I would be hard-pressed to make the $200 fundraising goal but look what's happened - thanks to all of your generosity we are creeping up toward four digits!!

Right now we're at $775 for online donations and also have a $50 gift being mailed in (Thanks, Mary!).  So, $825 leaves us with just $175 to go!!!

My sister's firm, Raising Change, LLC is matching every single dollar - so if I can get to $1000 that will mean $2000 goes to this great organization.  Now we're talkin'!!!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
