Francesca Giovenco via Crowdrise
January 14, 2013
This morning I read yet another gang-rape-on-a-bus-in-India story and decided that its location on the other side of the world doesn't give me license to turn a blind eye.
I have launched this fundraiser to raise money for today's victim, and those unfortunately still to come until we erradicate this heinous crime around the world. Since today's victim has not been publicly identified I will have to work with the Indian Embassy to ensure any funds reach their intended purpose:
- Provide support for today's gang-rape-on-a-bus victim in New Delhi
- Ensure local support in India for women to empower themselves and fight for justice in this crime
- Ensure local support in any other nation for women to empower themselves and fight against this crime
I have already set in motion a chain of actions that will help me reach the victim. I don't expect any funds from anyone, until I can guarantee proper delivery of funds. Until then I hope you will join my cause by "donating" information about getting funds to this victim, setting up fundraiser basics or any other helpful things you can do in an effort to end this violence.
