Can you imagine a world where every woman has a safe place to go for recovery?

I woke up really excited this morning. While I’m always passionate about the work I do here at St. Anne’s Home, there's something else that's got me pumped.

On February 2nd, 2012, thousands of area residents are going to show their support for their favorite nonprofit during Alabama Gives Day. On that day, every donation will help us further the important work of our organization.

Every day, a house full of women are getting the support they need in a safe environment to begin restoring their lives as they recover from their addiction to drugs and/or alcohol. Women are working on being reunited with their families, returning to the work force, learning new life skills, and so much more…EVERY DAY! Watching them come out of their shells and have their hope renewed is an experience that should not be missed! Each and every one of these women is truly a miracle – one that wouldn’t be possible without YOUR support.

A donation of just $12 can pay for a day’s stay for one of our residents. A donation of $87 could cover one week, and $350 would insure her ability to stay for an entire month. Think of the impact YOUR donation could have in the life of a recovering woman! YOU could be part of her miracle!

What really has me excited is that this is going to be a big event, and everyone will be talking about who they’re supporting. Think “American Idol” and we're in the try-outs but need your support to make it to the top.

We need you to help us with these three things:

1) Mark February 2nd, 2012 on your calendar and add this giving link. http://www.razoo.com/story/St-Annes-Home

2) Follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/stanneshome and help build the buzz.

3) Spread the word! Forward this email to your family and friends along with a personal note as to why you believe in our work, and why they should give on February 2nd, 2012.

Help spread the excitement. Tell your friends and family why you think they should help us with their donation. Please be our champion, and help us see it to the top! We can’t wait to celebrate the difference your generosity will make on February 2nd, 2012.
