My name is Rachel and I’m the development intern for CURB. Before coming to CURB, I’d never done fundraising — and quite frankly asking people for money always made me nervous. But this year on my 22nd birthday I gathered my courage and asked my family and friends to help me raise $500 for CURB’s #GivingTuesday campaign in lieu of a birthday present.
My relatives, peers, and even Facebook friends I hadn’t talked to in years opened their hearts (and their wallets) for CURB, and we raised over $700! I was blown away by this incredible display of the power of community, and the power of CURB’s message.
We have up until the end of this year to match a generous donation of $25,000. And our #GivingTuesday campaign is just the beginning.
Every little bit truly helps our coallition fight jail and prison expansion in California.
