Today’s economic crisis has made it difficult for each of us to plan for the future. Money is getting tighter, and we have to think longer and harder about when and where each dollar is spent. At CWLA, we have weathered all kinds of economic storms since 1920. Today, CWLA is a powerful coalition of hundreds of private and public agencies using our expertise, leadership and innovation to help improve the lives of millions of children. Unfortunately, when money gets tight, vulnerable children and families suffer the most.

Your donation to CWLA will help:

  • a foster child enrolled in college secure housing during the holidays,
  • an agency find a forever family for a sibling group of four–together,
  • a community give aid to families and rebuild after a natural disaster,
  • a child who has been severely abused find safety while her parents get the treatment they need.

These are ways CWLA helps our members improve the lives of children and families. Today, we are reaching out to everyone who knows and respects the important work we do. During these next few weeks, many worthy charitable organizations will ask you for financial assistance. We are asking you for one thing: One Lunch for One Month.

Whatever you spend on a lunch this month, send us that amount just once. If you pack your lunch and it only costs you $3.00, send that. If you go out for lunch and it costs $10.00, we would love to have it. And if you are a big spender and your lunches cost $25.00, we would certainly be appreciative. One gift will help 9 million children. Your tax deductible donation to CWLA will do just that. Nine million children, hundreds of the top nonprofit organizations in the country, and the neediest families in all 50 states will be better off when you give us a helping hand.

Think about it, and then share your hard earned lunch money with CWLA. We will ensure that, together, we are making children and families a national priority.
