#MyNonprofits: YWCA Silicon Valley

 


If you're healthy, employed, and traveled less than you wanted this summer, please make a donation to a nonprofit organization(s) that matters to you and share the donation link on social media with the hashtag #MyNonprofits - encouraging others to do the same. I hope you take part - thank you.

YWCA Silicon Valley had their Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event to raise money to fight domestic violence this past May - and this year was the third in a row I've done it. Only this time, instead of Santana Row, I was alone in an empty VTA parking lot where I walked a mile while attempting to Strava-art an image of a house. A friend at work did it in Milpitas and we exchanged pictures of our shoes. 

It was a nice moment, but domestic violence isn't a moment - it is a pandemic that has gotten worse during the COVID-19 pandemic. YWCA Silicon Valley noted they've had a 300% increase in requests for emergency shelters and/or financial help.

The next YWCA Silicon Valley event is their Inspire Luncheon which is coming up on October 29th from 12:00 to 1:30. Susan Rice will be the keynote speaker and I hope you register for the Inspire Luncheon here. 

Donate to YWCA Silicon Valley here. 

I'll see you tomorrow and I hope between now and then you take some of the money you saved having trips cancelled this summer and put it towards some nonprofits that matter to you.  Thanks for reading and thanks for riding.
