In celebration of her 65th birthday, Women for Women International supporter Kathie England set out on a quest to spread awareness and gain support for WfWI’s Congo program. After hearing about the Congo and the atrocities committed against women there everyday, Kathie was motivated to make a difference.
Kathie’s Project 65 is a fundraising initiative aimed at finding 100 people to together raise $6,500.00! Kathie sent letters to her friends and family asking them to contribute to Project 65 by donating $65.00 to the Congo program at Women for Women International.
Project 65 proved to be a big success. Kathie’s hope is to motivate Baby Boomers all around the United States to create their own Projects 65!
On behalf of Women for Women International, we would like to wish Kathie a Happy 65th Birthday and thank her for her creative fundraising project! Not only has she raised funds and awareness to help the women enrolled in our Congo program, but she is an inspiration for others to do the same, and for all of us here at Women for Women International.
