The Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network is the largest anti-sexual assault organization in the country. They offer a 24-7 hotline that automatically and anonymously connects callers with their nearest RAINN-associated rape crisis center, and they also offer chat services and a dedicated line for members of the Department of Defense community. They have programs to educate communities about sexual assault prevention. They help create and advocate for laws to make communities safer and support survivors. Basically, if there’s a way to help, RAINN does it.
The Mind’s Eye Society has backed RAINN for a few years now, and we are happy to support them once more this quarter. The list of how to participate in the charity drive are at the bottom of this email, including a direct link to make monetary donations to RAINN. For volunteer hours and physical donations, you can do so at any NPO battered women’s shelter. Clean out the closet for that pair of pants you always swore you’d get back into one day, grab the blanket you got for Christmas last year that doesn’t go with anything in the guest bedroom, buy a box or eight of tampons/pads. Find your local shelter and see what they need! I can tell you for my local shelter it’s usually hygiene products and disposables such as paper towels or toilet paper. Spend a couple hours helping sort through Christmas donations at the shelter. It’s that easy, and it can mean the world to somebody.
RAINN is historically one of our most successful drives. Let’s keep it up!
