Past Nonprofit Endeavors

PAST NON-PROFIT ENDEAVORS

November 2008
Rock ‘n’ Roll San Antonio Marathon
One of our members participated in the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Antonio Marathon. She was running on behalf of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America.

Doctor Who Fans Unite made a small monetary donation to Crohn’s & Colitus Foundation of America to help sponsor our member in the marathon.

December 2008
The Little Church of La Villita
During the month of December, DWFU took donations on behalf of The Little Church of La Villita, whose biggest fundraising event had been cancelled that year and who were therefore in dire need of support. Though admission to Doctor Who at the Drafthouse is always free, that month we requested a $1 minimum donation from attendees.

We raised $165.

Mission to Mission
DWFU set up a team of several members to ride/walk in the Mission to Mission Charity Bike Tour. The event raised money for a variety of worthy causes. More information can be found on the Mission to Mission website.

We raised $300.

This event, part of San Antonio’s yearly Fiesta celebration, benefits the Delta Society of San Antonio, bringing people and animals together for healing. For more information, check out the Pooch Parade ’09 website.

We raised $100.

September 2009
San Antonio AIDS Foundation Walk for Life
DWFU formed a team to participate in the Walk for Life, which promotes awareness and generates funds that allow SAAF to continue its pursuit of providing compassionate medical care and social services to people with HIV/AIDS and to help prevent the spread of HIV through education and free HIV testing.

We raised $560.

The walks are family-oriented gatherings that anyone can join — including children, adults, grandparents, students, corporate teams and more.

To Write Love on Her Arms is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery.

With the money they raise, TWLOHA helps to fund (among other things) outreach/awareness programs, an internship program, and scholarships for treatment facilities. They are also teaming with the Kristin Brooks Hope Center and PostSecret to launch IMAlive, the first live online crisis network with 100% of its staff certified and trained in crisis intervention.

At our September 2011 Appreciation Night at the Drafthouse, DWFU members will be selling Who-related craft items such as jewelry, pins, and posters to raise money for TWLOHA.

We donated $370 to TWLOHA
