Women's Crisis Shelter in Southern Humboldt
Six Rivers Planned Parenthood
These two wonderful organizations have been chosen by the V-day Humboldt committee. Because V-day Humboldt is run by volunteers, all of the money raised will go to organizations helping to combat violence against women. In accordance with V-day's national program, only 10% of the money raised goes back to the national group for use in this year's spotlight campaign, the rest will go to these local groups.
