My dear friend Robyn Askew introduced me to an A Step Ahead at a meeting in February 2016.
Fundamentally, empowering women appeals to me. For so long, women were not given the
opportunity to see their dreams realized. In 2019, there are still so many women who could
offer so many of their talents, but are unable to because of an unplanned pregnancy.
Our need at ASAFET is great, and in order to meet that demand we need the funding to help
women in need. I would ask people to consider joining fundHer an amazing way to give the gift
of 5 years of birth control to any woman that wants it -for just $25 a month. Someday, I’m
confident that would lead to a headline raving about how ASAFET has served thousands and
thousands of women!
