Show the World How Big Your Heart Is!
The Bighearted Campaign is all about the Tahirih family coming together and collectively opening our hearts to raise critical funds for women and girls seeking justice in the wake of violence. Teams from across the country are neck and neck in their fundraising and new supporters are standing up against violence. Your contributions are ensuring that brave women and girls escaping gender-based violence have access to justice here in the United States.
Now, there are only 10 days left to reach our ambitious goal of $200,000, and because the efforts of our fundraisers have inspired us, we thought we’d give that inspiration back tenfold!
10 BIGHEARTED REASONS TO GIVE
- Spirit of giving! What better time than the holiday season to ask your family, friends, and colleagues to join together and give to survivors of violence?
- BIG hearts are better. In an ever-uncertain world, standing together in support of justice and equality has lasting power beyond each individual action.
- Linda. Her story shows us the power of our “village” to save a life and the importance of ensuring we can do the same for the next girl who walks through our doors.
- Results. Since 1997, Tahirih has answered more than 22,000 pleas for help from individuals seeing protection from gender-based human rights abuses. Our holistic model of service is efficient, effective, and replicable.
- Courage. The women and girls we protect have overcome incredible obstacles to stand and fight for themselves, their families, and their communities. Wear your heart on your sleeve to show them that their voices matter and justice will prevail.
- Big impact! Every $1 you donate turns into $4 of impact, thanks to the incredible efforts of our pro bono attorneys, medical providers, interpreters, and volunteers, like so many of you.
- Tomorrow is too late. Today, we can help only 1 out of every 10 women and girls who reach out to us for help. We must do more. TODAY.
- Stand with women. It is the sad truth that 70-80% of young girls who flee war-level violence in Central America to seek refuge in the U.S. suffer physical and sexual abuse 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.
- Safeguard justice. Because every woman and girl has an inalienable right to live in safety and with dignity, to have the freedom to dream big, and achieve. Your gift offers a safe haven for each of them.
- We can and we MUST! As of today, we are $150k away from our goal of $200k. Help us keep our doors open and continue to provide the services our clients need.
For all the reasons listed above, and many others, we invite you to consider giving a Bighearted gift, and asking others to do the same, in the next 10 days. Thank you for your life-changing support!
