“FROM TRAUMA TO JOY: MENHEALING TOGETHER” LIVE LAUNCH EVENT UPDATE

This 60-minute virtual live event was a successful beginning for our current 100K in 100 Days fundraising campaign. Four survivors were featured, each of whom have inspirational personal stories about transforming their lives and discovering joy as a result of their courageous healing journeys. An interactive panel was moderated by Rob Valentine, a WOR Alumnus and member of the MenHealing Board. YOU can now access and view this video at your convenience.

Thanks to everyone who donated to this event – we raised approximately $15,000 in this launch event. Please consider whether YOU can make a contribution of any amount to our S100K in 100 Days Campaign:
