SiteCrafting Dances Against Domestic Violence

We here at SiteCrafting like to volunteer in our community. It gives us a warm and fuzzy feeling inside. Especially when our volunteer efforts help our non-profit clients. SiteCrafting has been working with the Tacoma Pierce County YWCA since 2009. We originally partnered with them for their "It's Time!" campaign, building a website that would inform the public about the campaign to open a new shelter, as well as track their fundraising efforts. The campaign was a huge success and the new shelter opened in October 2010.

SiteCrafting has continued to support the YWCA through volunteer efforts. For the past two Decembers, the SC team has helped wrap Christmas presents for the shelter residents. Some of our employees have also helped YWCA transitional housing clients move from one location to another, as well as participated in walks/runs to raise money for the Y's programs.

Last Saturday Sarah Champion and I decided to support the Y by shaking our booty. Sponsored by Studio 138 in Parkland, the YWCA hosted a 2-hour Dance Against Domestic Violence Zumbathon (Kelly McDonald, The Y's Director of Marketing & Donor Relations, also happens to be a fantastic Zumba instructor). All proceeds from the event went to the YWCA's domestic violence prevention programs.

Sarah and I learned that shaking your groove thing for a good cause definitely makes you feel warm and fuzzy (and kinda sweaty).

If you'd like to get involved with the YWCA, they have a half marathon (or 10k) fundraiser September 18th as well as a 5k fun run/walk on October 22nd.

How do you make a difference in your community?
