The Black Shoe Diaries community has been lucky to be involved in the #ProudPSUforRAINN campaign since its inception. Proud to Be a Penn Stater has raised a remarkable $489,848 for the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network since going live on November 10th. Now, with the initial $500,000 goal in sight, several college football legends have stepped in to help out the cause.

With the help of and the Johnny Rodgers Youth Foundation, RAINN is auctioning a full-size helmet signed by Penn State's Heisman Trophy winner, John Cappelletti, and Nebraska's Heisman trio of Johnny Rodgers, Mike Rozier, and Eric Crouch! All of the proceeds of this auction will be donated directly to RAINN's prevention and education initiatives and will provide support for victims of sexual violence and their loved ones through the National Sexual Assault Online Hotline. This is a fantastic opportunity to bid on an impressive piece of college football memorabilia and help out a worthy cause. So with that in mind . . .

In three weeks, we've turned a fundraiser into a movement. Let's keep the momentum going, remember the real victims in this tragedy, and continue to show the world who WE (still) ARE . . .
