During the month of February 2012 (National Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month), please join your fellow Americans in creating cultures free from violence, especially men’s violence against women. Your participation is key in empowering young men to use their strength for helping and not hurting. By making a donation to Men Can Stop Rape (MCSR), you are supporting young men who use their strength to change lives—and save many others. With your support, we can help more young men create and live their own definition of what it means to be a man. We can empower young men to prove themselves through community service and leadership, rather than violence and power over others.
The National Violence Against Women Survey, conducted by the U.S. Department of Justice, states that one in six women will be sexually assaulted during her lifetime. Young people age 12 to 19 experience the highest rates of rape and sexual assault, and people age 18 or 17 experience the highest rates of stalking. That is just too many young girls and women, let’s change this today! Together we can build a future in which violence against women is a thing of the past.
We are counting on all our fans to give up for a day their favorite food or drink and donate the value associated with your favorite food or drink to MCSR. In doing so, you are showing the women in your life –mother, wife, sister, aunt, grandmother, friend, neighbor, or co-worker that you care. Your donation is tax deductible, and your life-saving gift is priceless. Please give today and give generously. Women everywhere are counting on you.
