Organization: Men Can Stop Rape

When I volunteered at a domestic violence shelter this summer, one of the things we talked about is how part of ending domestic violence is in getting men to tell other men it’s wrong, for it to become unpopular among men. I think the same way is true with rape. We have to have men saying openly and to others that rape and any form of sexual harassment are wrong. That’s why Men Can Stop Rape is such an important organization to me. They are having their 2010 Men of Strength Awards. It will be in Washington DC on September 22nd. Find out more details here.

Organization: ASPCA

Do you have a pet? Great, you can do a little something to help out the ASPCA. Currently, if you get a quote on pet insurance (don’t even have to buy it, just have to get a quote), the company will donate $1 up to $10,000 dollars. It’s an easy way to give money to a great cause. I know a lot of times it’s hard to have money to personally give, that’s why opportunities like this are so great. Get your quote here.

Organization: I found out about it through the National Fatherhood Initiative

There will be prizes and you get to pick which organization out of 12 organizations gets your entrance fee. The organization I think you should support is the National Fatherhood Initiative, but there are other great organizations involved as well. Sign up and find additional information here.
