Hello blog buddies!
I’ve been given a small grant by Foobooz.com’s 24 X 24 program to host a dinner fundraiser for Women for Women International, an organization that helps women in war torn countries rebuild their lives, and their families.
I will be cooking a humble traditional Congolese meal (in honor of the amazing work that WfW does with Congolese rape and violence victims) and am asking guests to make a donation ($10 +) to support Women for Women International. Through your donation, women in Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovinia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kosovo, Rwanda and Sudan receive:
– direct aid for food, medicine, clothing and schooling
– microcredit loans and access to other economic opportunities
– rights awareness and leadership education
– job skills training and
– emotional support from the exchange of letter through the Sponsorship Program
You’re invited to this event! If you would like to attend, please send me an RSVP (so that I cook enough food!) at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can’t attend, but would like to contribute and support this fundraiser and Women for Women International, you can do so safely and easily here:
Since 1993, Women for Women International has directly assisted more than 153,000 women and approximately 655,000 family members have benefited from its programs. Women for Women International has distributed nearly $42 million in direct aid and microcredit loans since 1993.
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts. Women for Women will send you a notice of donation for your tax purposes. Women for Women International receives high marks from Charity Navigator for meeting or exceeding industry standards for nonprofit organizations.
