Reigning Roses Raises #150kbymothersday for COVID-19 Response

Annual Fundraiser cancelled, still raised $150kbymothersday

Mother’s Day has always been a special day at Rose Haven, hosting our annual Reigning Roses Walk. This event usually brings together more than 600 Rose Haven supporters and guests to walk a 5K for Rose Haven, and is our biggest fundraiser. This year we had to cancel the event, but the community still showed up for us, virtually that is at!

We did it! Thank you to everyone who helped us raise #150kbymothersday for #reigningroses2020! 

We are at $155.2K and counting! 100% of Reigning Roses funds will support life sustaining services for houseless women, children and gender-diverse people during the pandemic. We know that coronavirus outbreak will have lasting economic effects, and more women than ever before will rely on Rose Haven to meet basic needs and connect with community. This is just the beginning.

We are so blown away and grateful for everyone’s support during this difficult time. We know many of our donors are struggling too, and to see you all come through and post your #reigningroses2020 pictures and videos felt like we were together on Mother’s Day. Each one of us is overwhelmed when we think about how we can make the word a better place, but together we always make it happen.

No matter what the world throws at us we only get stronger. Every time we feel like the world is falling apart, the universe slaps us back into place, the phone starts ringing and someone else wants to help. Rose Haven is a constant reminder that people are good. It can be overwhelming to think of the constantly growing need, how will we ever keep pace?! But every year we somehow do it, every year the community steps up to meet the need. Everybody just does what they can, and somehow it works out. No one person a change the world, but together we can! Rose Haven is a community, and each of your are a critical part of that. Thank you.
