UPDATE: #ProudPSUforRAINN is Going Strong

A phoenix is rising from the ashes. 

Yesterday, we asked the Penn State family to join with us and a group of grassroots alumni in raising money for the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) through the Proud to be a Penn Stater (#ProudPSUforRAINN) initiative.  We asked you to remember the actual victims in these tragedies.  We asked you to remember that Penn State is NOT a failed university administration, but the thousands of students, alumni, and faculty who have lived their lives by upholding the values of Success With Honor.

Yesterday, you answered our call by raising (as of press time) $60,810 $69,814.

#ProudPSUforRAINN was publicized only through this blog post, Twitter, and Facebook.  We managed to raise so much money that the man who put this all together, Jerry Needel, made an appearance on New York's ABC affiliate yesterday afternoon.

Despite the early success, we're nowhere near our goal of $500,000.  Keep sharing this with everyone you know on Facebook and Twitter.  Keep telling your friends and making phone calls.  Keep everything moving.

Thank you for your generosity.  Thank you for you kindness.  Thank you for showing the world who WE (still) ARE . . .
