I do everything I can for this organization because no one deserves to live in fear.
I want to make you something as a way of saying thanks, so I'm having a raffle.
My fundraising goal this year is $1,000! :
Every $10 donation I receive will be entered into a drawing to receive a piece made by me.
Handknit shawls, woven scarves, there are many possibilities with the exception of fitted garments.
Multiple entries welcome ($20=2, $50=5, $100= 10, $250 = instant winner level.)
First prize Winner will have color and shape options. Yardage(size) will be determined by my total fundraising.
Second and Third Prizes have been made and pictures can be found here -
One red crescent shape shawl, with deep red beads
One blue, silk and mohair/silk with pale blue beads.
Winners will be selected December 6th.
Open to anyone, even Kathy LeMay ;-)
Delivery of the piece will be approximately 60 days after Hot Chocolate Run.
Instant winners will receive their piece 45 days from receipt of donation.
My employer is matching donations so $5 becomes $10, $25 becomes $50 and together we make a difference. Please help me to give voice and hope to those that truly need it.
Every day, Safe Passage helps survivors of domestic violence take steps towards a brighter and safer future. Some of these steps are easier, and some are harder.Every step is important.
Safe Passage relies on people like you and me to bring hope, safety, and justice to women and families.
Here are some ways Safe Passage will put your gift to work:
$30: Resources, support and hope for a woman calling the 24-hour hotline
$55: A survivor's first counseling session. For many of Safe Passage's clients, this is the first time they've felt heard. It's the first time in years that they've felt hopeful.
$120: A drop-in support group session for survivors of domestic violence
$225: Information, advice and support for a survivor facing a divorce or custody dispute
$500: Healing counseling for a child who has witnessed violence
All contributions are tax-deductible, and you’ll receive an emailed receipt immediately after you donate.
You can make a difference for families affected by domestic violence. I hope you’ll join me!
