Proud to Be A Penn Stater (#ProudPSUforRAINN) campaign


#1

For anyone interested (RAINN is the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network):

In the wake of the recent events at Penn State University, a grassroots network of PSU alumni are standing up for victims of sexual abuse by supporting RAINN’s effort to prevent and treat victims of sexual abuse. We have joined together to mobilize the Penn State fan base – alumni, students and fans – to ensure something like this never happens again – anywhere.

“After having so closely identified with all things Penn State over the past 15 years, the recent events have shaken our beliefs – and those of other alumni – to the core. Simply put, Penn State is way bigger than the alleged actions of a few people. To honor the victims, our goal is to raise over $500,000 – one dollar for each of Penn State’s 557,000 alumni. Please join us in showing the world what being a proud supporter of Penn State really means by making a donation in support of preventing and treating victims of sexual abuse and by adding your name to mine below.”

Can someone vouch for this? Certainly looks legit…

At some point early Monday morning, the #ProudPSUforRAINN drive is going to hit their $500,000 milestone.

Keep your eye on it and maybe you could be the one to send it over.

My dad and I split up our money for tickets for football. If we decide to not renew, then I am intending on donating all that money to RAINN.

If we do decide to renew, I will still donate, just felt I should clear that up.
