About AWARE CT: AWARE (Assisting Women through Action, Resources & Education) is a grass-roots organization dedicated to promoting awareness and generating funds in order to make meaningful improvements in the lives of females in the greater New York City area and worldwide. Each year, we support one organization with three key events; a fundraiser, a hands-on volunteer event at the site, and an educational event to bring focus and understanding to the cause.
We are an all-volunteer organization run out of our living rooms with little overhead so almost all donations go directly to the cause.
