Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, Inc AKA RAINN
March 28, 2011
For the first time in my life I feel like I'm actually doing something to help people. I'm cynical by nature and even though I love giving to charities and attending events, I am always skeptical of where my money goes because, let's be honest, people are corrupt. But working at RAINN enabled me to speak directly with victims and survivors of sexual assault and I was able to personally see the affect a kind, open-minded person can have on a traumatized individual. Not only did I feel like I was helping, but I KNEW I was helping.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my own personal life. I always wanted to help people and I know for a fact that I have with RAINN. I received an email from another volunteer who spoke with someone I had previously helped. This victim came on and asked the volunteer to pass the message on to me that I helped them and that I changed the way they saw their situation.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I really wouldn't. Honestly the only thing I would change would be to make it more widely-known.
Volunteer & I was on the Online Hotline and spoke directly with victims and survivors of sexual abuse, and their family members. .
