BARCC Walk for Change! 
1st-Apr-2013 01:24 pm
BARCC's Walk for Change is this Sunday!

And... some amazing person who has chosen to remain anonymous sponsored me, Adam, and Judah to the tune of $500 each. *kermitflail* Bring the guys to their goals, and me past mine!

So now I'm turning the spotlight on the rest of Team Venture!

Behold Team Venture's page, where you too can sign up to join us!

Team Venture has, at present, three walkers who have yet to reach their goal.

Ashley Fullstop Brown only needs $52 to make her goal!

Benazeer Noorani only needs $130!

Lisa Smith needs $600!

Also exciting: check out the leaderboard. Team Venture is right behind the three big volunteer divisions and the BARCC Board of Directors. Those are all bigger groups, y'all. Much bigger (except for the Board, and... deep pockets there.) We can beat out the Board, totally. We can also maybe outearn Hotline. Let's find out.

But why should you sponsor? Here I will copy and paste, because I have a bunch of other stuff to do today!

Hey y'all! This is my seventh year volunteering with BARCC and my fifth year Walking for Change! I am proud to be walking in support of the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center and the incredible free services they provide to survivors of sexual assault and their loved ones.

Yes: incredible! and free! BARCC provides 24-hour hotline counseling and medical advocacy, as well as individual and group counseling, legal advocacy, case management, public education and outreach, and survivor speakers, always 100% free and confidential to all survivors, regardless of gender, race, immigration status, sexual preference, anything.

It's a lot of work. It's a lot of amazing, powerful work. And BARCC is able to do it partly through grants, but mostly through people like you, who support BARCC in the fight against sexual violence.

See, now you make me feel guilty! I'm supposed to be helping team Hotline! But really, whoever you give to, it's an amazing cause, and I'm so happy to be part of BARCC.

Reaching into the depths of memory... one of the very lucky men in your life designed an cam-router-printer thingee. One of my cohousing neighbors is looking for an industrial design consultant to assist with bringing a product to market. Is there a synergy here; would he be interested in helping (for pay)? If not, could he recommend someone?

P.S. It seems to now be impossible to send you a private message.

He's actually looking for gigs right now! You can e-mail him at judahsher AT gmail.com, and you can always e-mail me at shadesong AT gmail.com. (I shut down LJ messaging because it was just one more inbox to lose track of.)
