ALL PROCEEDS GO TO ORGANIZATIONS THAT WORK TO STOP VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN & GIRLS

Over the past 5 years, VDay 4thU has raised over $65,000 to support V-Day. Through the 4thU VDay campaigns, they contributed to V-Day’s work in the Congo & Haiti and to several local beneficiaries. Their beneficiaries this year will be Restore NYC (www.restorenyc.org) , Safe Horizon (www.safehorizon.org) & Haitian Women for Haitian Refugees (www.haitianwomen.wordpress.com).

Over the last 15 years, V-Day, www.vday.org, the global movement dedicated to ending violence against women and girls, has moved into 140 countries and raised over $100 million, educating millions about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it, as well as crafting international educational, media and PSA campaigns, helping to revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations.
