About the #2ndChances Campaign

We’ve all been given a second chance - at life, at love… a chance to change direction, to learn a new way, or to right a wrong. WPA’s 2nd Chances Campaign seeks to highlight this shared experience and bring attention to our work to support justice-involved women and their families. The campaign aims to entertain, educate, and inspire action.

Running from May through September of 2014, the campaign features a video series of personal second chance stories shared by women at WPA, staff, community members and celebrities. Using social media, the campaign will invite the public to share their own second chance stories by uploading their videos to the campaign’s website www.2ndchancescampaign.org.

The campaign invites opportunities to support WPA programs through donations and an exciting series of Charity Buzz auctions and high-value raffles including lunch with Piper Kerman and Taylor Schilling. We invite you to join the conversation and share your second chance stories with us.

Charity Buzz

WPA is excited to launch a series of Charity Buzz auctions in conjunction with the #2ndChances Campaign! From August 13-27, you have the opportunity to bid on a series of extraordinary celebrity experiences, while also supporting the #2ndChances Campaign and WPA's efforts to help criminal justice-involved women and their families.

Celebrity experiences include:

  • Coffee with Lea Delaria (Big Boo) of Orange is the New Black.
  • A shopping trip with the Spanish Mamis (Jessica Pimentel, Jackie Cruz, and Laura Gomez) in NYC!
  • Lunch with Taylor Schilling (Piper Chapman) of Orange is the New Black and Piper Kerman herself!

For more information about these exciting auction opportunities - including details and the status of a particular auction - or to place a bid, visit WPA's Charity Buzz Page

Winning auction bids are considered to be a charitable donation to WPA and are tax deductible.
