People ask us all the time how they can get involved with our cause, and there are many ways we can use your help.
Volunteer. Our volunteers donate their time and resources based on their own schedules and availability. Volunteers help run events, assist in research and data entry projects, write articles, hang up signs and pass out flyers, and much more. Does this sound like something that interests you? Fill out our Volunteer Application to get started. Or do you have an idea of how you can help that we may not have thought of? Contact Us and let us know about it!
Spread the word. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 6 men have been affected by sex crimes. Just because you may not know about it doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. This is a crime that often causes silence. Our goal is to break that silence and you can help. Post about us on your social media pages. Tell people about us in person. Whatever you have to do… get people talking. Even if they don’t have a story, they can be educated about why it is a problem for more than just the actual victims.
Donate. Click here to donate. This is a fairly simple way you can help us. We do not get grants or any kind of state or federal funding. We aren’t backed by a church, business, or even another non-profit. We are a grass roots, independent, crowd funded non-profit organization. We like it that way. and every single bit of money we are donated is extremely appreciated and useful. You can donate via cash, check, or credit card at any one of our events or you can simply click the PayPal Donate button below. You do not have to have a PayPal account to donate via PayPal. Are you curious about where your donation will go? Visit the finances section of the About Us page to see a layout of how money is spent.
