The annual day of giving is HERE! 

There are various ways you can support YWCA NorthEastern NY on this day.

Option 1: Donation challenge

Make a Facebook post on November 30th using the following image and caption:

In honor of the 32% of women who experience domestic violence in New York State, I donated $32 to YWCA NorthEastern NY, the only domestic violence shelter in Schenectady County. #NOMORE

Let’s raise $3,200 together this #GivingTuesday, to cover 9 months of rent at the shelter. 

I challenge the following people to donate, and to challenge 5 others:

Today for #GivingTuesday, please join me in supporting YWCA NorthEastern NY and their mission of eliminating racism and empowering women. They offer the only domestic violence shelter in Schenectady County, affordable housing for low-income women, early learning curriculum, and counseling.
