The intent of this project is to help women who have sought refuge in domestic abuse shelters. Through it I am creating college funds and supplying copies of Too Much Gold to Flush to shelters.
As a college professor, I celebrated the positive impact of education, particularly for those who were the first in their family to attend, so I was moved to start Empowerment through Education. One-third of every dollar donated goes to a scholarship fund for women’s shelters and the remaining money provides copies of my book to the women in the shelters. This year’s campaign will end the middle of December in time to deliver these boo gifts.
You can donate to the General Donation, which will be split among all the shelters in this campaign. Or, if you are interested in donating to a particular shelter click here and then scroll down the page and choose a shelter. Once you donate, you will be asked if you want a tax receipt, which we will request from the shelter. Click here to see all the shelters in this campaign.
