Jenny and I are asking our friends to help us raise $36,000 to fund a Women's Initiative class that will help 18-20 women start a business.
Jenny and I have supported Women's Initiative since 1996 and we've seen the difference that an 11 week clase makes in women's lives.
Imagine living in the Bay Area on an income less than $20,000 per year. I can't imagine how anyone does it, but there are thousands of women scraping by at that income level. The WI program helps them PERMANENTLY change their life by learning how to start a business.
Graduates increase their income, build assets and become self-sufficient. Starting a small business benefits all of us with stronger, more vibrant communities when the women who graduate start becoming successful.
One class, for only $36,000, helps 18 women start a business. We hope you'll join us in sponsoring a class in 2012.
