You inspire us.
We’re so encouraged to see how many of our wonderful supporters have come together to support brave women and girls fleeing gender-based violence. There are only 10 days left to reach our ambitious goal and we need your help now more than ever.
Because your compassion inspires us, we thought we’d take a moment to give you a bit of inspiration in return…
10 Bighearted Reasons to Give
- Tis the season! This is the perfect time of year to take stock of what matters most and give to those who are less fortunate.
- A better world. Our commitment to ending the epidemic of violence against women in our communities and across the globe is more important now than ever before.
- Big impact! Every $1 you donate turns into $4 of impact, thanks in part to the incredible efforts of Tahirih’s pro bono attorneys, medical providers, interpreters, and volunteers, like so many of you.
- Diana. Her story shows us that one act of unexpected kindness can save a life; you can do the same for the next girl who walks through our doors.
- A great need. Today, we can help only 1 out of every 6 women and girls who reach out to us for help.
- Leadership. Baltimore, Washington DC, Houston, and San Fransisco are proudly diverse and compassionate cities, two of which recently made Charity Navigator’s “Top 10 Most Generous Cities” list – let’s keep up the great work!
- Historic opportunity. We are facing the greatest refugee crisis since WWII, what better time to show vulnerable communities the true nature of American hospitality?
- Justice. Without a Tahirih attorney, a woman or girl has only a 16% chance of winning asylum. With Tahirih, her chances soar to 99%.
- Protection. 70-80% of young girls who flee war-level violence in Central America and seek refuge in the United States are raped along the way. We must build a world which offers each woman and girl support and protection from harm, and we can start right here at home.
- Freedom. Because every woman and girl like Diana deserves to live in safety and with dignity, to have the freedom to dream big, and achieve. Tahirih opens to the door to a safe haven for each of them.
Big Hearts, Big Change
For all the reasons listed above, and many others, we invite you to consider giving a Bighearted gift in the next 10 days and join the Bighearted Campaign this holiday season. Thank you for your life-changing support!
