A request for distribution from the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (some of you have seen these resources before, but it’s worth reposting them):
To assist efforts in disaster-stricken areas, NSVRC collaborated with several organizations in the field to establish The Relief Fund for Sexual Assault Victims www.nsvrc.org/relief-fund.
We are working to increase donations to the fund. Help us by sharing the Relief Fund Flyer in your community.
We also have a new way for people to contribute by buying Cards that Care. 100% of proceeds support the relief fund.
