Every 98 seconds a person is raped in the United States. That's really f*ed up.
The dedicated staff and volunteers at the Orange County Rape Crisis Center devote countless hours to solving the problem of sexual violence in our community through support, education and advocacy.
We believe that it it possible to end rape, but it will take more than a handful of staff and volunteers. Giving to the Punk Cuts to End Rape Challenge is a small but important way that you can show up for change.
Since my hair was already punked, I'm doing a slightly different challenge than the rest: Donate and I'LL COVER A PATTI SMITH SONG ON MY BANJOLELE WHILE ALSO HULA HOOPING! This ludicrous video will be shown at the Punk Cuts event in Carrboro on August 17th, and posted that night to my YouTube channel for awesome out-of-town donors and those who can't make the event.
Several local badasses have issued a challenge to their friends and family this month: Donate and I'll SHAVE MY HAIR! These awesome people set a personal fundraising goal. Once they reach it, they get a free punk cut in the style of thier choice-- but it will involve clippers.
