Lifelong progressive activist and WAMM supporter Phil Willkie is generously matching donations made to WAMM up to $2,000 on Give to the Max Day 2014! He is donating in honor of Polly Mann, whose birthday is in November, and to honor the many strong women in his life. In his own words: As we honor Polly Mann and her 95th birthday and as I donate $2,000 to match the gifts to WAMM from Polly’s other admirers, I’m also honoring and remembering four women who were my mentors and role models. Though I met Polly late – in 1987 – she clearly ranks with the strong women who influenced me. Sponsored by: WAMM and GiveMN.org. FFI: Visit Facebook Click to Donate to WAMM on GiveMN 2.
