Dear Ben, When Sexual Healt…
Dear Ben,

When Sexual Health Innovations launched our Callisto crowdfunding campaign less than 48 hours ago, we never anticipated the outpouring of support the project would receive. Because of wonderful contributors like you, we were able to hit our target goal of $10,000 in less than 24 hours and are quickly approaching the $15,000 mark.

Your generosity will help SHI give college survivors the tools and resources they need to make the best decision for themselves in the aftermath of a sexual assault, to facilitate the identification of repeat assailants, and to give schools better data on campus sexual assault.

We cannot thank you enough for your support. It means the world to us and to our amazing group of volunteer fundraisers.

We set up a special page for donors like you to make it easy to spread the word! Check it out at:

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,

Jess, Tracey, and Jonathan

Steve and I would like to thank everyone who donated to Hole in the Wall in support of our Madagascar race. Truly, thank you.

In six days the race begins, a week later we will be out the other side. If you would like to follow the progress you can find updates on the Racing The Planet main page ( or you can follow my blog (see link below) as I will be able to update everyone daily on each stage. You can also send along any warm wishes in the comment section of said blog.

With gratitude

To everyone who has donated …
To everyone who has donated so far:

Well, this is the best kind of awkward… even though we have 72 days left before the NYC Marathon, we were able to hit the initial goal of $5000 in a little over 48 hours! I’m completely floored by your compassion and generosity… I had no idea there would be this level of support. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU all.

As you can imagine, just because we hit that initial goal, there’s no reason to stop there. I’m raising the goal to $10,000. I expect the frequency of donations to taper off compared to the first couple days, but considering how much time we have before the race, I think this new goal is well within our grasp.

I don’t want to clog your Facebook feeds for the next two months, but one of the most precious things I could ask those of you who have already donated is to continue to help spread awareness. The easiest way to do that is to share the fundraiser link on your own Facebook wall, or even email friends if you’re so inclined. The level of national awareness of FTD is just a fraction of the awareness of other rare diseases like ALS (pre-Ice Bucket Challenge). If we can raise over $10,000, it could be one of the largest donations the AFTD receives this year. Let’s make it happen… and once again, thank you!

Much love,

p.s. Again, the best link to share for the fundraiser is:
