I was appalled when I read that a woman had been raped by two of her team mates. I would like to turn the strong feelings about that incident towards something positive.
We will be grappling for 24 hours in support of Rape Crisis. They work to increase awareness about sexual violence, press for change and help survivors.
Please spare whatever you can (JustGiving works outside the UK too). To donate via text message, text GRAP54 £1 to 70070.
The event will start at 9am on Saturday 4th May 2013. Just like before, Just like last time, we're streaming it live over the internet, on uStream. I'll also be putting updates on my Twitter. You can go to the Facebook event page too, for even more information about the event. :)
Hope to see you there!
