RAINN Fundraising Event

Earlier this summer, I participated in the 2009 Blogathon for RAINN. Forty-nine entries and 24 hours later, it was a great success. In fact, together, the bloggers for RAINN raised almost $3,000, or enough funds to help more that 850 survivors of sexual assault and violence. RAINN is an amazing organization, and I am proud to support it.

Recently, Sara from RAINN contacted me with information about an upcoming benefit for RAINN. I'd like to share that information with you:

Coming up on Wednesday, September 9th, Christina Ricci will be hosting a special benefit for RAINN - the nation's largest anti sexual-assault organization. The purpose of the event will be to honor the leaders in the fight against sexual assault and to celebrate the tremendous strides that these leaders have made together.

The event, taking place in DC, will be a cocktail reception with light hors d'oeuvres.

During the event, RAINN will officially launch their new child abuse public awareness campaign and present Crime Fighter Awards to Rep. Doris Matsui and Sen. John Conyers. The money raised from ticket sales will go to support RAINN. Each ticket sold will help 50 victims of sexual assault to receive the help they need.

    amazing job. I need to get involved with more non profits. I'm involved locally with one but I would support this organization.
