"This experience gave me more confidence to set healthy boundaries in my life, to say "No" and even be home alone and walk alone at night. As a young woman in this world, this is incredibly freeing."
We did it!!
Thank you for supporting Impact Bay Area's Go Commando campaign. Thanks to supporters like you, this small, grassroots nonprofit got the chance to roar on social media to over 180,000 individuals - maybe you saw some of their messages on Facebook or Twitter? Thanks to you, our Thunderclap went out today - GivingTuesday!
We know there are several great causes out there to support on this day of conscious giving, but we are so thankful for your support of a small and local nonprofit like us. Your support makes the difference in the lives of people in our community, one scholarship at a time.
I'm also delighted to let you know that for today only (GivingTuesday), all donations given to our Go Commando campaign TODAY will be increased 5% by Indiegogo and FirstGiving.
Someday NO will be enough. But that's not where we are today, and that's why Impact must continue its mission.
Will YOU help us provide these life-changing skills to people who can't afford it?
"I came to Impact because my sense of safety was shattered. Because Impact offered me a scholarship, I was able to take the class ... I cannot help but use the word "impact" repeatedly to describe its effect ... It is because of Impact that I feel strong for the first time in my life. I am so grateful to be a part of the Impact community."
Can you make a donation today? Every $10 or $20 brings us closer to giving one more scholarship!
Every $20 you give is increased $1 on #GivingTuesday! Contributions are tax deductible.
If you can't donate, please share Go Commando with your friends on social media. You can share, post, & tweet directly from our Indiegogo page to help us build the buzz.
"I wanted my daughter to acquire real self defense skills if she ever encountered a situation where she needed to protect herself. This class is invaluable. I'm grateful my daughter had the opportunity to take it."
Thank you for helping us roar like thunder today!
