Hi Kyra,

Between 2015 and 2016 I raised nearly $4,000 for the YWCA via the “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” program.  This program raises funds for the sheltering and assistance of women in situations of domestic violence.  I chose this program because both myself and my mother experienced violence in our home when I was growing up.

The first year I teased that if I raised enough money I would do the walk not only in high heels but a dress.  It worked and we raised a good amount of money.  In 2016, we upped the ante with the chart below and the final outcome.  It worked again!  We raised just over 2K that year.

This year I did a personal donation of $1,000 to YWCA Brandon since I couldn’t be there in person.  It’s not only important to me to support the cause, but to remember where I came from.
