Raising Money & Awareness for our 911 Rescue Fund
Our hope for Giving Tuesday 2023 is to Effect Change.
The 911 Rescue Fund gives us the ability to rush to the aid of those in immediate danger, even helping to prevent the danger from occurring. This fund allows us to take emergency calls from friends, family members, or the victims themselves and bring life-saving rescue, medical care, legal aid, transportation, and so much more. When there is no time to ask for donations, this fund empowers us to respond instantly so it is critical that it be replenished to ensure funds are available on a daily basis.
As you may know, Giving Tuesday started in 2012 as an idea in response to #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday purchases. Annually, millions of dollars are being generously donated to nonprofit organizations to aid the work of their hands and effect change in the lives of those in need, in their time of need.
We all want to effect change with our resources. Your WAR, Int’l Giving Tuesday gift immediately empowers rescue and intervention.
Our goal is to raise $40,000 for our 911 Rescue Fund.
Our 911 Rescue Fund grew out of a partner’s request in the dead of night to rescue a baby who had been sold to Thai traffickers for $200. Our president was shocked they had to ask for the funding to rescue! We want our partners to be empowered to immediately intervene—not wait for the funding needed to save a life.
This fund is vital as it allows WAR, Int’l and its partners to rush to the aid of those in imminent danger. We rely on this fund when we get an emergency call from a frantic woman trying to escape her trafficker, when a desperate partner calls about a crisis situation, and when life-saving intervention is urgently needed. When circumstances call for immediate action, there is no time to ask for donations. The 911 Rescue Fund enables us to respond to urgent situations like these at a moment’s notice.
At this very moment at our Headquarters, we are embroiled in 4 such rescue efforts.
Over the next few weeks, leading up to November 28th, Giving Tuesday 2023, we will be sharing Stories Of Rescue to help you grasp the scope of your WAR Int’l Giving Tuesday donation, and its impact.
Together, we can make this Giving Tuesday unforgettable.
