Exciting times at BARCC!
BARCC has been up to so much lately - which has unfortunately led to less blogging! But we’re trying to get on track. Here’s some of the excitement!
We just launched a new website! SurviveRape.Org is a guide to forensics for survivors. It has a tremendous amount of resources to help survivors make their decisions regarding medical treatment, evidence collection, and reporting to the police. Do go check it out even if you’re not a recent survivor - there’s so much information there to learn, and knowing it can help you support the survivors in your life!
We’ve been nominated for three Stay Classy awards! Our categories are Charity of the Year, Most Effective Awareness Campaign (for our Save/Support SANE efforts), and Most Innovative Use of Social Media! Please vote for us today, and tell all your friends. If you’re on Facebook, you can invite them to this event.
We’re having a party! Well, a fundraising gala. But we’ll all be in our best dresses and suits. You should join us. BARCC’s Champions for Change Gala will be held at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Cambridge on October 28. Great cause, great company, great food, and an amazing auction with some fabulous prizes. The Gala is one of our biggest fundraisers, and it’s a great chance to meet all of our staff and volunteers. Join us!
And we’re also running our fourth volunteer training of the year. Welcome to BARCC, new volunteers! Our next training will be in February 2011, but it’s not too early to apply.
So go check out our new forensics site, vote for us, and buy your ticket to the Gala! As always, thank you so much for your support. :)
