Rachael's Warriors

March 6th @ 6:30pm

It is out of the devastation of the loss of Rachael at the hands of domestic violence that Rachael Warrior Foundation was born. The family and friends of Rachael banded together to try and help. To try and find a way to keep Rachael’s story from being repeated. To try and make a difference – one person at a time.

No one at Rachael Warrior Foundation receives a paycheck, and thier volunteers are a self-less group that always asks “what else can we do?”

Racheal's Warriors mission is to help those in crisis due to domestic violence.  Not just to help them recover from the abuse, but hopefully get them out of a domestic violence situation before it is too late.  We want to help as many young women (and men) as possible, to help them out of their own tragedy and into a better life. We are here to “Turn tears into bubbles!”

100% of your donation will go towards gifts for these children, 100%. ALL administrative costs of this organization (PO Box Fee, Paper, Ink, Web Site Fees, etc) will be covered by the McKinney Family. Every penny you give goes toward gifts for a less fortunate family burdened with cancer.
