Help Us Raise Over $100,000 for the Agency!

Purple Purse

The Allstate Foundation has selected our agency to particpate in their nationwide

Purple Purse Challenge.

The Purple Purse Challenge is a fundraising and domestic violence awareness campaign launched by The Allstate Foundation.  The Challenge runs from Oct. 1 - Oct. 27.  Each week there is a contest and the winner(s) of that contest will receive a match or more of their amount raised that week from Allstate Foundation.  Additionally, at the end of the Challenge the charity that raises the most throughout the Challenge will get a $100,000 donation from the Foundation.  We're out to raise as much money as possible for our agency so we can win many of the weekly contests and the $100,000 grand prize donation!  

You can help us be winners by:

  • Sharing our Facebook postings about the Challenge on your page.
  • Spreading the word. If you email a list of your co-workers, family and friends and ask them to help, we can get that much closer to winning the grand prize and raising so much money for our cause.
  • Clicking HERE to make a donation. 

You know the impact that $100,000 would have for our organization and we're looking for all the help we can get!
