America's Giving Challenge and You: How You Can Help the Women's Memorial Foundation Earn $50,000

The Women’s Memorial Foundation has an opportunity to receive a $50,000 grant but we need you to help make it happen.

Parade Magazine and the Case Foundation have partnered to present “America’s Giving Challenge,” an innovative charity donation initiative that will award $50,000 to eight charities that have attracted the most donors to their cause through “Charity Badges,” between now and Jan. 31, 2008. A “Charity Badge,” like the one on this page created for your use during this initiative, is a graphic link that will take you to a secure online donation page powered by Network for Good. Once there, you simply fill out the donation form and your donation—$10 minimum—will automatically be designated for the Women’s Memorial Foundation. Although donors are welcome to give via the “Charity Badge” more than once, duplicate donations from the same individual will be counted only once.

Because the key to being one of the top eight “Charity Badges” is the number of individual donors, we need your help to spread the word about the challenge and to share our “Charity Badge” site information. We encourage you to tell your family and friends about this special opportunity and share access to the Women’s Memorial Foundation “Charity Badge” by providing them with the link so that they, too, may donate by clicking on our “Charity Badge.” In order for individual donations for the Women’s Memorial Foundation to be counted toward the Challenge, donors MUST make their donations via the “Charity Badge” on this page.

Just like traditional donations to the Women’s Memorial Foundation, donations made via our “Charity Badge” during the Challenge may still be made in honor or memory of individual servicewomen. During your donation process, you may elect to designate the name of an individual and you will also have the opportunity to send an e-card announcement to let her know that you have honored her in this way.

Please donate today and spread the word! REMEMBER—for the Foundation to receive Challenge credits, you MUST DONATE USING THECHARITY BADGE” ON THIS PAGE BETWEEN NOW AND JAN. 31, 2008.
