I was contacted by someone from the Rape, Abuse, & Incest National Network (RAINN) regarding the 2009 Blogathon. Blogathon is a charitable event in which bloggers pledge to post every half hour for a consecutive 24 hour period. It’s a great way to support this organisation and to raise awareness for their cause. I’m not able to participate this year– interrupting my sleep/wake cycle that much is likely to go very badly for me– but I support RAINN’s efforts whole-heartedly.
Disclaimer: I do not work for RAINN. I’m simply trying to gain support and awareness for an organisation that has helped so many people affected by sexual violence.
