Rape Center Fundraising Update

Amount Raised So Far: $530

#

This week is spring break for my kids, so I’ll mostly be away from the internet doing spring break stuff . Or, you know, as much spring break stuff as a 40-year-old geek is likely to do…

In the meantime, an update on the Bad Movie Fundraiser for Rape Crisis Centers. The goal is to raise at least $500 for RAINN or your local rape crisis center. So far, there have been a handful of donations, and we’re closing in on $100. (With two people who told me they donated, but didn’t provide an amount.)

If you want to get in on this, just email me at jim -at- jimchines.com letting me know how much you donated.

Once we get to $500, I shall subject myself to Transformers: Age of Extinction, and livetweet my thoughts for your amusement and entertainment. And possibly your sympathy.

Making that goal would be a lovely thing to come back to at the end of the week. I’m just saying…

Spring break is good. :)

We had break here last week and my girls' best friends from Indianapolis came up to visit with their mom for several days. It was an amazing puppy pile...

I did have a brief look for local ones in my area to find that there is indeed a rape crisis centre. It's part of the health department and government funded, with no apparent mechanism for giving them extra $.

I'm torn between looking for something similar that isn't funded or looking for something that doesn't give me a tax deduction because it's not in my area.

And the part of me who doesn't want you to suffer isn't helping.

Statement: i sent 20 bucks to the local prostitutes collective (who do rape counseling as well as many other wonderful things for one of the most marginalized and ostracized groups in society.)
Please DEDUCT this from the total.
Because friends shouldn't let friends watch transformers 4

What a tweest!
Because even Eue Boll, let alone Shaliman could do a better job than Bay did on transformers 4. The message from that movie was: Underage sex good, Budd lite good, robot dinosaurs.. oh; I'll get around to it eventually, once I squeeze in more product placement. Oh by the way, rural USA: there is nothing to do in the countryside but reproduce. So get jiggy.
