A pivotal part of supporting survivors of domestic violence is assisting them to end the cycle of violence in their lives, once and for all. While much of our focus is on helping survivors transition to safety, we also work to spread the word about healthy relationships and healing. Over time, we have come to realize that a lot of folks aren’t sure how to define healthy relationships, and this can be especially challenging for survivors of domestic violence.
This is where YOU come in; we hope you will join our call to action as we share education and ways to create healthy relationships by rallying your friends and putting the fun back into fundraising.
Will you please join us in spreading the word about W.O.M.A.N., Inc. and help us raise funds crucial to supporting survivors of domestic violence by joining our Healing Together Fundraising Team?
If you choose to join us, here’s what you will be asked to do:
- Create your own fundraising page on Crowdrise. You can personalize your page with photos, organization and program information, and some testimony on why our work toward healthy relationships and ending domestic violence is so important to you. We also suggest you set a fundraising goal anywhere between $500-$2,000…whatever amount you feel comfortable with works.
- Organize your fundraiser! Share your fundraising page with your friends, your co-workers, community groups and interest groups—help us spread the word on our work and raise some of that critical cash for our work!
- Push your fundraiser out; the challenge goes LIVE on August 1st and ends on August 31st!
We will supply you with photos, templates, suggested activities for getting your friends involved, weekly interactive, and fundraising themes such as ‘my relationship bill of rights’ and ‘healthy relationships feel like…’
You can raise money via social media, parties with a purpose, email and mass mailings. This is a challenge you can put your personal touch on your education and fundraising efforts, too. Staff is here to support you as you run your month-long campaign.
AND, we have some fun challenges for our team; two winners will receive $50 gift certificates to Cheesecake Factory.
To join, please visit crowdrise.com/healingtogether2019 and click the “Join” button. From there, you’ll be able to choose whether you’d like to join an existing team or create one of your own. The deadline to join the challenge is JULY 18th.
Plan to join us for a Healing Together Mixer on July 18th, from 5:30PM-7:30PM. In attending, you will learn more about W.O.M.A.N., Inc., healthy relationships and healing. Our hope is that this content will better prepare you to plan your Healing Together campaign—we promise it will fun, and light refreshments will be served.
We sincerely thank you for your interest and support. Together, we can prevent the cycle of violence.
