About Causa Oregon:

We are a statewide immigrant rights organization. We work to defend and advance immigrant rights through coordination with local, state, and national coalitions and allies.

Causa works to improve the lives of immigrants and their families in Oregon through advocacy, coalition building, leadership development, and civic engagement. Latino immigrants and their families are the heart of Causa and inspire, implement, and champion our work.

Stretch and sip for a cause! Fundraiser for Levé

Friends, grab your mamas! Mamas, grab your friends!

Our friends at Levé are hosting their first annual Mother's Day weekend event featuring a one-hour yoga session followed by mimosas, all in support of Levé's mission to inspire charitable habits in our generation.

Want to treat your mom to a relaxing pre-Mother's day morning? Do you and your mom squad want to reward yourselves with a morning out? Or maybe you just want to do some yoga and have a mimosa with some fun people! No matter the reason, we would love to have you stretch + sip with us!

The event will support Levé 2018 nonprofit partners:

// Adelante Mujeres works to educate and empower low-income Latina women and their families, providing intentional, innovative, and holistic programs to over 5,500 families annually.

// Mercy Corps NW believes that a person's background can and should not dictate their capacity to thrive. Their mission is to build more just, productive and resilient communities in the Pacific Northwest.

// Oregon Active provides Adventure Therapy for people in our community with disabilities and other life challenging conditions. They are paying it forward through adventure and community.

Please bring a yoga mat if you have one; there will be a few available but not enough for everyone. Our rockstar teacher is Sheila Schmid and she has almost 25 years of yoga experience.

Fundraiser workout for the American Cancer Society- Relay for Life

TFW Portland is hosting a fundraiser workout on Saturday, July 22nd, 2017 to help support Team Butterflies of Hope, as they raise money for the American Cancer Society (ACS).

American Cancer Society Relay for Life

What is Relay for Life?

It’s the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society with over 4 million people in over 20 countries participating. We come together to celebrate cancer survivors and caregivers, remember those we’ve lost, and honor those who are currently fighting cancer. Cancer has touched many of us in some way, so we decided to fight back. At this 24-hour long event, Relay for Life, we will take turns walking around the track to raise money and awareness to help the ACS in their lifesaving mission.

Please join our team or make a donation. Saving lives from cancer starts one team, one participant, one dollar at a time. Your donations help fund groundbreaking cancer research, prevention and treatment, and crucial patient care programs.

You can contribute in several ways!

1. The fundraiser workout will be held Sat, July 22nd @ 11:00am.  

Where: TFW Portland, 1338 SE 6th Avenue. Street parking is available.

Cost: $20 minimum donation. Members of the team will speak about Relay for Life!

 

2. Come support Butterflies of Hope at the main event!

When: Sat, August 12th @ 10:00am to Sunday August 13th @ 10:00am

Where: Portland Christian School: 12425 NE San Rafael St.

Each team sets up a themed campsite at the event and continues their fundraising efforts by selling a variety of items. This money will count towards their team goal.

Yours in Strength,

TFW PDX
