Welcome to HopeWorks 2018 Purple Purse Challenge! For those not familiar with Purple Purse, it is a virtual fundraising campaign sponsored by Allstate Insurance and spokeswoman and tennis superstar, Serena Williams.
In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, organizations like HopeWorks will compete to raise money; top fundraising organizations will win grand prize cash donations.
By setting up a fundraiser and reaching out to your networks of supporters, you can help us make an even bigger impact and help us compete with the top teams nationwide to win the grand prize cash donations. Last year we raised over $18K and place 23rd in the country.
Please consider joining our team as we aim to reach our goal of $25K. We would love to make it to the top 10 nationwide. Prize money ranges from $5k for 5th place all the way to $100K for 1st place! Wouldn’t THAT be amazing?!
Here is what you need to know:
Please consider joining our team as a fundraiser. Simply go to the link below and click the big JOIN THE TEAM & CREATE YOUR OWN FUNDRAISER button and you’ll instantly have your own fundraising page as a part of our team. This can take less than five minutes!
Once you have created your own page, share that link with your friends, family, social and professional networks. Please spend time personalizing your fundraising page. We have found that time and time again, people give to people – not organizations. Your networks are more likely to contribute to a cause if they have a good understanding of the organization’s mission and why doing this work is important to you and your reasons for supporting it.
In the meantime, we will support you all the way! So if you have trouble setting up your page or don’t know what to say, just email me or Mia, our Development Manager.
