Giving Thanks

Thanks to You -
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Resilience Rising would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to our RR family, which includes you. Your enthusiasm, volunteer hours, and financial support have enabled us to purchase a residential property to turn into 'A Place to Call Home' for eight teenage girls and two young children. We would like to send a special thank you to two very generous donors in 2012. IKEA Centennial ( donated 36 furniture items to help furnish our home. Wig Walk Boulder ( selected us for the second year as a beneficiary of their annual event, helping us to purchase a much needed new roof for the property. We hope to grow our RR family in 2013, and with your continued support we hope to open our doors in the near future. From our home to yours, have a wonderfully warm and joyful Thanksgiving!

RR's Year-End Campaign -
RR is participating in the Mozilla Firefox Challenge on Crowdrise as our year-end campaign 'A Place to Call Home.' The goal of the challenge is to help raise as much money as possible for awesome nonprofits like Resilience Rising. The fundraiser that raises the most money for their campaign before January 10th gets a $50,000 donation from Mozilla; second place gets $30,000; and third gets $20,000. And bonus, the 20 fundraisers that raise the most money by November 25th will win an additional $500 donation; we are currently #21. Please make a donation today!
