Battered mothers and children safe because of you!

Safe because of you
Safe because of you

Because of you we have already been able to place five battered mothers and their children into hotels this year! Your donation has helped provide life-saving refuge for victims in danger, who may well have otherwise been on the street in a time of crisis.

Here is a note from one battered mother you helped. "I didn't know what to do. I was so afraid. When I called Lucy from a pay phone and she said she could put me and my baby in a hotel for the night while she arranged a bus ticket for me to get to the city so I could fly home, I cried. I didn't think anyone would care about me that much..."

I personally know how important your donations are to victims in need. If you are interested in learning more about why I founded the Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center, you can read the first chapter of my memoir for free at www.harvestingstonesbook.com

I can't thank you enough for chosing our project to donate to on Global Giving. Warmest wishes always, Paula

About Project Reports

Project Reports on GlobalGiving are posted directly to globalgiving.org by Project Leaders as they are completed, generally every 3-4 months. To protect the integrity of these documents, GlobalGiving does not alter them; therefore you may find some language or formatting issues.

If you donate to this project or have donated to this project, you will get an e-mail when this project posts a report. You can also subscribe for reports via e-mail without donating or by subscribing to this project's RSS feed.

 

Microproject Disclaimer

Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Help Rescue 500 Battered Women And Their Children. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.

If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
