Thank you for supporting SARC through Give!Guide


gogol_bordello_jonathan_caseJonathan Case, a local artist, has partnered with SARC in his desire to fight the sexual exploitation of children in our community. Every month, he will be donating proceeds from his art sales to our agency. Here is his message.

Every month, I’m donating a portion of my original art sales to SARC (The Sexual Assault Resource Center), my favorite local nonprofit serving survivors of sexual exploitation and violence. This month, I’ve already contributed $535 out of a possible $1,000. For December, I’ll do the same, up to $1,000. Whether it’s a couple pages of Batman, a color cover, whatever, the first $1,000 goes to SARC. Pretty simple. I’ll start with this model and see how it goes. My intent is to raise funds and awareness for their work throughout next year.

*UPDATE: In 24 hours he met his goal for November 2013.

Donate directly to SARC here: SARC’s been around since 1977 (they’re featured in this year’s Willamette Week Give! Guide). Begun by two assault survivors, its staff works in the Portland metro area with a current caseload of almost 300 kids at risk for sex trafficking. It’s the same population the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children talks about when they quote stats like this.
