Do you need a gift idea or a way to honor someone you care about through a donation to a worthy cause? Consider donating to RightRides!
RightRides is an amazing organization in NYC helping women and LGBQT folks get home safely late at night on the weekends, and through New Yorkers for Safet Transit, they are working to make public transportation free from harassment and assault.
The following is from a RightRides email and details how YOU can make a difference in NYC and in your own city in 2010 to make all public places safer through making a donation to their organization. Consider making one today to honor the people you care about. I did.
JOIN OUR MOVEMENT FOR SOCIAL CHANGE IN THE NEW YEAR!
RightRides is a simple yet effective way of increasing community safety, and the program is now ready for national expansion! Our exciting plans for 2010 include:
