On April 29, 2006, thousands of people will take a two-mile high stand against sexual assault. At dozens of sky dive facilities ("drop zones") across the country, they'll take to the sky and jump. It's all part of Operation Freefall, the boldest, highest-altitude and most daring event organized to put an end to sexual assault. The money raised by this event will benefit the organizations Speaking Out About Rape (SOAR) and the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN). Some people taking part in this event need your help raising pledge money. Here is a message from Kellie Greene of SOAR:
There are a number of survivors who are experiencing difficulty in raising pledges. I've created an on-line fundraising page at firstgiving.com/jump2006 to help raise pledges for these survivors to ensure they will be able to Take The Two-Mile-High Stand Against Sexual Assault on April 29, 2006. I'm hoping the readers of The Dent will support these courageous survivors take a flying leap by making a tax deductible donation at firstgiving.com/jump2006. Each person who makes a donation on this page can be assured the donation will be used specifically to enable a sexual assault survivor to participate in Operation Freefall. And as a special thank you from SOAR, they will receive an official Operation Freefall bumper sticker for showing their support of sexual assault survivors.
