You Made Jessie's Dream Come True!

Jessie and Leo are moving into their apartment tomorrow and have a home for the holidays because of you! What a wonderful gift you have given to this small family. Here is message to you from Jessie.

"I can't stop crying I am so happy. I used to cry because I was so afraid, now I am crying because I am happy. I can't believe someone who didn't even know us helped us. We are going to have Christmas in our little apartment and that is all we need, a safe, happy home. Thank you so much."

Every year we help hundreds of battered mothers and their children like Jessie and Leo. If you like the work we are doing please consider becoming a recurring donor to our parent project, Help Rescue 500 Battered Women And Their Children, between December 20th and December 31st and Global Giving will match your December donation 100% as long as the recurring donation lasts four months.

If you give $50 a month for four months, your $200 becomes $250!

Here is the link to the parent project:

We sincerely thank you for your support and wish you and your loved ones a happy holiday.

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.
