What will you donate this year?
Registration is now open to donate to this year’s 100th Anniversary Celebration! I hope everyone I know who is coming to Orlando in April will find the coolest things to donate.
I’ve already convinced a few folks at this past weekend’s Region 2 conference to donate very similar items to the annual conference because there were actual bidding battles happening.
Best idea I saw – even if not intentional – a parent and kid package. Basically it was two bottles of BBQ sauce and a mascot stuffed animal. An item for the parents, and something to bring home for the kids! I would encourage folks to consider this. Maybe even things for the pets at home! Get creative. What would YOU like to see at an auction? What would YOU bid on? Ladies, this weekend a Vera Bradley bag went for $37. That’s a steal!
If you do have questions, let me know!! Register your items here!
So wait. Someday you’ll be a star because you’ll talk on the phone and they’ll be able to see you on the screen? What? Amazing. What a concept.
Been getting many emails, tweets etc. with very valuable information regarding Halloween. Safety, Rape, Slut-Shaming, Racist Costumes. So I thought I would compile it all. I am not endorsing any particular item, just sharing everything that I’ve seen this week that could be used to help educate students. If you have other resources, please share them with me!
To start, we shared an app offering to enhance the buddy system.
Our Interpersonal Violence Prevention Office shared this today with their listserv as well as this video:
Here’s the link to the Huffington Post article: “Cal Consent Campaign Posters Remind You Halloween Costumes Aren’t An Excuse To Be Rapey.”
Here’s Anthony Otero’s blog with some pictures to highlight racist costumes. Other resources from Anthony:
Ohio State has the STARS program (Students Teach Against Racism in Society) that put a couple of posters together that are just amazing. Check them all out.
RAINN’s Halloween Safety Tips: The nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization gave a bunch of tips for a safe evening here.
Again, please let me know of other valuable resources and I’ll add them to this post! Email me! email@example.com.

This did not go out yesterday as hoped. Anyhow – this AMAZING submission was sent to me by my co-worker Jeremy Bowker. Basically, women were not cool enough to be astronauts and not even worth “contemplating”. So rude!
