A friend introduced me to Becky Lee last winter and through speaking with her I first learned about Becky's Fund and its mission to raise awareness of domestic and dating violence. I took particular interest in Becky and her story because I had never met someone who started their own nonprofit organization. It is a relief everytime you meet someone so passionate about a cause that had never previously affected them directly. I believe this represents an awareness of human conditions and experience that extends far beyond oneself. Becky informed me of the various methods Becky's Fund utilizes to help accomplish its mission. One of the programs that I took an interest in is the Young Men's Mentorship program. The purpose of the program is to reduce future instances of domestic violence by providing a role model and setting a positive example for young men who are determined to be at risk of potentially becoming abusers in adulthood. Becky introduced me to the program by inviting me to attend various program events. I discovered that Becky's Fund allowed me the opportunity to contribute to a great cause on a personal level that is missed out on when you just contribute through monetary donations. Becky Lee represents a degree of selflessness that is to be admired and possesses a wealth of compassion. It is a pleasure to work with her and Becky's Fund.
