You all have blown us away.
You have supported our work today in so many ways - giving online
, supporting team members' Facebook fundraisers
, or spreading the word
. In fact, the response to today's matching gifts campaign has been so impressive that we have already met the match we told you about this morning.
Inspired by your generosity, our Board members have pledged an additional $1,500
in matching funds. Can you help us meet the (new) match
Between your donations and the matching funding that they unlock for us, we have raised more than $7,000 today alone. I believe we can raise $10,000 - and I know exactly what that would mean for our organization. It would enable us to provide in-depth training to 100 defenders, offer 100 hours of intensive consultation work to defense teams in need of assistance, or commit significant pro bono time to some of the most desperate cases. In short, it would save lives.
When John and I started ARC, Inc. just a few years ago, we could not imagine a day like today. Your support has already made this a significant moment in the life of our organization. On behalf of myself, the whole team, and those we serve, we are truly grateful.
Thank you for all of your support,
