Supporting Rape Crisis Centers

Last Saturday, I mentioned that Jim Hines is one of the good guys in the F&SF community. He is also a former rape crisis counselor who writes very well on the topic.

With April being Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Jim is providing some incentives for people to donate to rape crisis centers, either local centers or RAINN, which offers a single toll-free phone number that will connect victims to local counselors. RAINN also offers online counseling, and it supports both male and female victims.

So, if you have a few bucks you can spare, chip in where it will do some excellent work. Then head on over to Jim’s blog and check out the line-up of F&SF authors he’s persuaded to offer signed copies of their work as incentives for donation. Send him some information on your donation, and you could be the proud owner of one of these. Donate enough (collectively–about $2,000 has been raised in the two days this has been going on so far), and Jim will have to find more great authors and more great books.

This sort of thing is a win for everyone involved. Why not be one of them?
