We're always sad when the party ends, but counting Browngiving-back donations is the bright side of post-Browngiving days. Best of all, this year's Browngiving-back fundraising drive was bigger than ever! With Steph Xiang's generous company match, the $350 donated by Browngiving-goers will be doubled, resulting in a total contribution of $700 to Rosie's Place, and topping our goal by almost 50%. Among their many programs, Rosie's Place provides short- and long-term assistance to women in the form of meals, groceries, housing, and legal advice, so our donation is sure to help a lot of Boston-area women. We also filled two boxes with canned goods and other nonperishables, which will be donated to the Greater Boston Food Bank this week.
A big thanks to everyone who donated to these great local causes, especially Steph Xiang and Liz Good for rallying everyone to truly extraordinary results.
