You Make Our Work Possible

June 29, 2016 | BY Maile Zambuto | FILED UNDER JHF BLOG >

Mariska and Maile here. We have some big news—and are asking for your help. Generous friends of Joyful Heart, Lauran and Myrna Bromley, have just issued a $250,000 challenge: they will match your gift—dollar for dollar—up to $250,000. We could not be more grateful or hopeful. If we are able to meet their match, we are confident we can reach our June 30th goal.

We are so close—and we need your help now more than ever.

As you know, this was an extraordinary year in our movement to end sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse. We have stretched ourselves to meet this moment with our greatest creativity, compassion, and commitment. We have been working tirelessly over the last few weeks to raise the funds we need to sustain our work and our incredible momentum. We still need to raise $380,000 before our June 30th deadline.

When we spoke with Lauran last night about their matching challenge, and why she and Myrna support Joyful Heart so generously, she simply said this:

The energy and commitment of this organization is far beyond anything I have seen in my life. I grew up in a time where people didn't talk about these issues. I myself didn't talk about what happened to me. Joyful Heart has changed that—for me, and for countless others. I support Joyful Heart so that no one—no child, no woman, no man, notanyone—has to endure the horrific trauma of violence.

We know how much you do and how generous you are, and we are so grateful. You are the fuel that keeps us going. All you need to do VISIT to make your donation now.

A gift of any amount truly makes an impact.

Remember, your donation will be doubled until tomorrow at midnight, thanks to Lauran and Myrna's generous match, and you can receive a small Token of Joy from us as an expression of our gratitude for your support. Thank you again.
