Hello supporters of Stop the Silence! I hope you are all doing well. Thank you for your past support.
I am writing now to provide an update on our progress and to let you know about an incredible opportunity.
First the update... Stop the Silence is moving swiftly forward in the development of exciting global advocacy with Talk to Stop. We're also providing great programming on the ground with Queendom, a program to reach at-risk 13-19 year old girls (some information on that program is attached). AND, our BRAND NEW Web site will be live soon -- so visit the site (www.stopcsa.org) soon for our great new look and updates on projects.
There's something else I need to reach out to you about. 2009 has been a tough year, but we are determined... Right now, we have the opportunity through the Global Giving Foundation to raise matching funds. Please help us raise $5,000 now to meet our current donation goal of $10,000! If we raise $10 - $2,500, donations in that range will be matched at 30%. Raising $2,501 - $7,500, donations will result in 40% matching! Raising $5,000 will result in $7,000! We can do this with your help!!
Please go to www.goto.gg.3583 (or http://www.globalgiving.com/projects/child-sexual-abuse/) to help Stop the Silence stop child sexual abuse!
Please consider making a pledge for $20 a month (or, if you can give more, wonderful) over the next year. We need to impact this epidemic. Just imagine -- if we could get 1,000 supporters to provide $20 a month, we could put the programs that we're imaging in place. But we need your help.
