RAINN is the acronym for Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network.
The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network is the nation's largest anti-sexual
violence organization. RAINN operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline at
1.800.656.HOPE and the National Sexual Assault Online
Hotline at rainn.org, and
publicizes the hotlines' free, confidential services; educates the public about
sexual violence; and leads national efforts to prevent sexual violence, improve
services to victims and ensure that rapists are brought to justice.
Prior to the Nebraska-Penn State game a grass
roots group of Penn State Alumni started the #ProudPSUforRAINN campaign
to raise $500,000 to help survivors of sexual violence. Donations from the campaign
will directly benefit RAINN's prevention and education initiatives and provide
support for those affected by this crime through the National Sexual Assault
Online Hotline (online.rainn.org).
All of the proceeds of this auction will be donated directly to RAINN. Here
is your chance to get this one of a kind item for your sports collection and
help this worthwhile and timely cause at the same time.
