Creative Ways To Support HOW

Crowdfund

for HOW

It's easier than ever to help raise funds for HOW's Client Stabilization Fund. You can create a custom crowdfunding page with a personalized goal and share your story with your network to inspire them to donate. You can crowdfund for your birthday, in honor of a loved one, or just because! Instructions on how to get started at the bottom of the page. 

Virtual Happy Hour

Community matters and it's important to stay in touch with friends and family despite not being able to physically meet-up.

Schedule a friend for a virtual happy hour or coffee date, and sip on a glass of wine or enjoy a nice cup of home-brewed coffee while catching up. You can then donate the amount of money you would have spent at the bar or coffee shop to HOW!

Your 

Skills

You've got talents and plenty of time on your hands. Use your social media accounts to advertise your skills and ask friends and family to purchase your homemade goods. It could be a funny greeting card, a special guide to making your perfect pesto, a home workout regime...you name it.

You can ask that people make a donation to HOW in lieu of payment!
