I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce you to MADRE, an international women’s human rights organization that I know you’ll appreciate and want to support, just as I do.
I’ve been a supporter of MADRE for [X] years. Each year, as I reflect on all that MADRE has accomplished worldwide for women’s human rights, I grow prouder of my involvement.
For nearly 30 years, in places like Nicaragua, Guatemala, Afghanistan, Iraq, Haiti, Palestine, Kenya, Sudan and beyond, MADRE has been fighting for women’s human rights. With a unique strategy for getting life-saving emergency aid where it’s needed fast, and for building daring, durable solutions wherever women’s human rights are under assault, MADRE’s work is truly inspiring. That’s why I support MADRE—and I hope you will, too.
With the help of my tax-deductible gifts, this year alone MADRE has opened a new women’s shelter in Baghdad to provide women threatened by violence with safety and give them the tools to rebuild their lives, revolutionized police proceedings in Haiti to help ensure justice for rape survivors, and so much more.
But as always, there is still more to be done. I hope you’ll join me in supporting MADRE’s important work. By doing so, you’ll be supporting a network of activists who are helping to save lives, protect women and girls from violence, and give the world’s bravest women the means to make human rights a reality. I love being able to support this critical work, and I know you will, too.
P.S. – Thanks to a special matching gift opportunity, all gifts made before December 31, 2012 will be doubled in value! Please consider making your tax-deductible gift today.
