A group of Penn State Alums, including my friends Jaime, Jerry and Bob, started a grassroots movement to keep the focus on the victims and to create funds to help them. They partnered with RAINN.org, the largest, anti- sexual violence organization in the US and raised $225,000 in 48 hours. They need your help in reaching their goal of $500,000 by 3:30EST today (the end of the Penn State/Nebraska) game.
Please visit Proud To Be A Penn Stater to make a donation now. Every dollar counts and goes towards helping victims of sexual abuse. It makes a statement about humanity. Football blogs such as Blackshoediaries.com and Huskermax.com have been supporting the campaign. Traditional media channels (CNN, ABC, NBC, and Fox among others) are covering the story.
But with so many of us watching the news and the stories unfold, there is more we can do. Please click here to lend your support.
