RLSH Raise Funds for St. Jude 2020!

2020 has not been pulling any punches, but that's not stopped the RLSH Community from doing all they can to help others. The multiple fundraisers for St. Jude is a prime example of this. Details and links to donate below!

 

Nyght Family of the XJL in San Diego, California:

St. Judes warrior dash is coming up this year if you haven’t heard. We’re gonna be doing a virtual run This year and I’m gonna do things a little differently.

1) I will carry 1/2 pound for every dollar I raise. Meaning if I raise $200 I’ll be carrying 100 lbs. etc. now if I get more than my ability to carry, I’ll have to figure out a longer distance. Ie instead of a 5K it turns into 4 miles or more.
2) everyone who donates (from $1-$10000) I’m gonna wear your name as a patch. It will most likely be an envelope sticker but I will make sure it’s visible and on my flack (yes I will be rocking full gear... like I’ve done at every race)
3) I will award the top the donators to me with a completely original piece of handmade art work (sizes will roughly be around 24x18 but I am flexible ish) that I will personally sign and mail to you or if you’re in California I will personally deliver it.

Here’s is what I am asking of you: if you can afford it, even just $1 the kids of St. Jude’s could really use it. If you cannot I completely understand. The world is rough right now and I get being financially strapped. So come join me! Message me and we can link up and do the walk/run/kike together. Obviously with a safe distance but we can do it together. No cost. Just show up, raise support together. The race will be nov 14th this year. I can’t tell you how much it means to have so much support over the years and I want you to know that it’s you who gives me the strength to do it. You’ve got this... and I’ve got you!

Citizen Tiger of the XJL in Huntington, Indiana:

Campaign milestones! I have been training all year to help the kids at St. Jude's and i was afraid i wouldn't get the chance to this year. Since there isn't much time i have decided to keep it simple and entertaining.

-If WE receive $100 in donations i will pull a car 100 yards! 

-If WE receive $200 in donations i will tow a car 100 yards behind me!

-If WE receive $300 in donations   i will push the family sedan 1 mile!

Impact of the XJL in  Saint Petersburg, Florida:

Hey all, like many people on your feed, I am raising money for St Jude’s!
I don’t have a bunch of donation incentives chosen yet, but you know imma make myself look dumb if you throw money my way
Stay tuned

UPDATED:
I am doing a virtual 5k fundraiser for St Jude’s
Every person that donates, I’ll write their name on my arms during the run
For every $100 raised, I’ll let my karate students attack me with boppers for a minute. So $200 is 2 minutes, $300 is 3, and so on. If you’ve ever been in a fight, you know those minutes add up
I’ll face paint the highest donor’s name across my forehead for the run
$500 raised and I’ll also run in a skirt
$800, and I’ll go for a dress

https://fundraising.stjude.org/site/TR/Heroes/Heroes?px=4007053&pg=personal&fr_id=120931 

 

Animal of the XJL in Fort Wayne, Illinois:

My goal is to raise $1000 to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital by November 14th. This is in place of The Warrior Dash that will sadly not be happening this year. And to encourage you guys to donate, I am willing to humiliate myself! The goals go as follows:
 
$50 - I will say "Thank You" 50 times.
$100 - I will take a whipped cream pie to the face.
$150 - I will pour a bucket of ice water over my head.
$200 - I will blast myself with Diet Coke and Mentos.
$300 - I will paint a self portrait while blindfolded.
$400 - I will shave my head and face.
$500 - I will do a Fitness Challenge designed by Citizen Tiger
$600 - I will eat a half batch of Red Rooster Bread's Cookies N' Cream Cupcakes
$700 - I will take a Jell-O bath.
$800 - I will have two dozen raw eggs thrown at me.
$900 - I will be covered in peanut butter.
$1000 - I will dress up as a duck and have my friends play a game of Duck Hunt. (With paintball guns)
 
And if we blow by my goal...
$2000 - I do everything again, BACKWARDS!
 
On Monday, November 16th, I will do a live stream on Facebook completing the many challenges that you all set before me.

MisFits 4 Life

Here are some answers to our questions on this year’s virtual 5K walk or run event on Nov 14.

1. DC Wonder Woman & Batman Run registration fees are $40 per person. There are no discounts available. But here’s the good news: You can still join our team without a fee. You can still walk or run with us on Nov 14 and if you want to raise money for St Jude, you can still do that. You just won’t get any DC swag.

2. St Jude has provided us with a fundraising page setup link that I used to create this year’s team page called “Misfits 4 Life 2020”, located here and with no registration fees!
https://fundraising.stjude.org/site/TR/Heroes/Heroes?pg=team&fr_id=120931&team_id=260671  All you have to do is click the “Join Team Button” to join the team and create your page.
Note: This link setup is the same type of setup we have used to create each of our prior year fundraising pages. After you create your personal fundraising page, you should be automatically added to our team, but if not, you may need to search for our team “Misfits 4 Life 2020” and join the team. And as always, you can customize your donation page with a photo and message. Also, if you use your old login details you may still have access to your mailing list of people who made donations last year which is a bonus!
Also, when you set up your personal page, you will see “MY EVENT” listed as:
2020 Team St. Jude Memphis, Tennessee • December 31, 2020
This will not affect us in any way. The event is listed this way because it is a virtual event that takes place between now and the end of the year, and the hospital located in Memphis.

About the DC Wonder Woman and DC Batman 5k Virtual Run option:
3. For anyone interested in joining the Wonder Woman or Batman 5k virtual run series the real benefit you get by going this route is that you get the DC swag, but the cost of the swag is the $40 registration fee. This may be worth it to you as the swag is fun! You can sign up for either of those events, but please still create your personal fundraising page with the link listed below so that our entire group is all in one place.
https://fundraising.stjude.org/site/TR/Heroes/Heroes?pg=team&fr_id=120931&team_id=260671 
Wonder Woman sign-up: https://dcwonderwomanrun.com/ 
Batman sign-up: https://dcbatmanrun.com/virtual/ 

From me (Rock):
You can join us from your own home! No need to travel, no need to do a 5K, no need to fundraise (although the kids could use it),
Just commit to some type of activity, join our group by asking to be a part of the Facebook group (where you can find more answers), and prepare to HERO UP on Nov 14th with the rest of us!!
 
Be sure to spread the word on these fundraisers, and help make their goals to change the lives of these kids a reality!
 
And if I missed yours, feel free to send me the details and I'll add it to this article.

#ShineALight: Stopping College Campus Abuse Coverups

Before I begin, I need to emphasize how important my anonymity is. What I’m going to tell you involves the most powerful college dean in the country. A dean that people are intimidated by. Let’s call her BLACKLIST. But Blacklist is not the only one in her position who has done what I am going to delve into. There are universities across the country that are covering up and tampering with sexual assault and rape cases. Blacklist, and other universities, have been silencing people from getting this story out there. It is why I need to remain anonymous: For my protection, and the protection of those I care about.

Call me KNIGHT.

I’m a co-founder of an anonymous community service organization in Savannah, GA called THE ASTRALS. For the past few years, our goal has been giving victims a voice and helping them feel comfortable reporting their cases to local law enforcement. Some of the cases that have been sent our way by people involve sexual assaults, rapes, thefts, information on neo-nazis, cults, you name it. In a very short period of time, we’ve expanded to other communities across the country and even received attention from people around the world. I’m still surprised a teenager in Argentina did a class presentation on us.

Very early on in our first year, we got word from an inside source that a university’s dean - BLACKLIST - was covering up rapes and sexual assaults committed on the university’s campus. At the time of hearing this intel, I was shocked but guarded. I felt that today’s day and age with #MeToo, there was no way a case of this scale wouldn’t have slipped through the cracks. Luckily, I had a contact I could talk to.

I had a meeting with the Chief of Police of Savannah regarding this case. I discussed the information and some stories circulating. One story being that of a student who was raped by a homeless man who broke into her dorm, and this student was then blacklisted by Blacklist from all resources the university had in the student’s field of choice. This student was a senior.

To my amazement, the Chief was suspicious of this activity for a long time. He explained what we needed to get in order for the SCPD to open an official investigation into the matter. Myself and the other three founders (REFLEX, APEX, STRIX) went at it based on the advice given.

We heard rumors of a case that had occurred in a dormitory the previous year. The story goes that a homeless individual broke into a student’s dorm and raped her. As she went up the chain to share her story, she eventually reached Blacklist. This student was a senior, and to silence her - Blacklist blacklisted this student from the resources and connections the university had in the industry of her choice. This, of course, is how the nickname Blacklist was created.

We looked into the situation every way we could. We utilized any leads we could gather, and though many went cold, we kept looking. By the end of the year, we got in contact with a security officer from the university. This security officer claims to have responded to that specific case and knows the student. He was willing to create a video testimony, which we then sent to a new point-of-contact (the Chief had stepped down). A few months later, we were told the video testimony was enough for an official investigation to be opened.

Once we were told the investigation was opened, we let the law do its thing. However, a couple of years later, we continued to get similar allegations but from students across the country. After doing some digging, we found that USA Today reported in 2015 that 89% of colleges reported 0 cases of sexual assaults or rapes. Obviously, we found this incredibly suspicious. We also found a story regarding a man named BOBBY ZAREM, who was fired after coming forward about 4 rape cases being covered up by a local university. We spoke to Mr. Zarem directly about what happened. Since we had not heard any updates from the point-of-contact we sent the video testimony to, we decided to try to help by bringing attention to this issue.

Upon figuring out a plan, there was news circulating of a person named PINK who was exposing the original university for wrongdoings regarding tuition during the COVID-19 pandemic. Pink was very public about his outcries and garnered backing from the student body of this university. I had personally been in contact with Pink for a while discussing if he had any leads regarding the possibility of more cover-ups. He was focusing on the wrongdoings he had uncovered, but assured that he would work with us on our case when the time came.

Eventually, Pink was suspended from the university, and his visa was removed. This was still during the COVID-19 pandemic. This caused an outcry from the student body, but it also became an aid to back up the already 15-30 allegations of colleges covering up any wrongdoing. Not just sexual assaults and rapes. However, we needed to adapt a plan we had put in place due to the state of the world.

We wrote a bill with a friend of ours in the city council. THE COLLEGE PROTECTION BILL is aimed at ensuring that an allegation from a student will be enough for local law to look into any specific matter, and get the backing necessary to hold those responsible accountable. Due to the state of the world, our adapted plan of bringing awareness has not been successful. However, we have tweeted a brief summary of the issue, and what people can do to prevent it from happening again.

Universities are under-reporting these cases. And, in one case in particular, blacklisting students to keep them silent. There is a rabbit hole to go down regarding this story, and I’ve provided links that will lead you down it. We’re hoping that writing this press release will help spread the word of this issue. We’re hoping this will give people the platform they need to come forward. Most of all: We’re hoping this will help bring an end to this issue once and for all.

HOPE Portland 2020

This year the RLSH Community actually did manage to have a successful HOPE event, this time in Portland on July 10th.

Organized by local team Iron Squadron, RLSH/X-Alt members from various states traveled and pitched in to help deliver supplies to the homeless population in Portland, Oregon.

People present included Ace, PixiStyx, Star Child, Knuckles, Willow, Xeno, SkyMan, Fairy Rose, Red Ranger, Justin Service, NightBug, Rock N Roll, and Knight Owl. They represented teams Iron Squadron, The ][nitiative, ECHO, and HONR.

The supplies distributed included water, food, hygiene packs, toothbrushes and toothpaste, masks, pet supplies, and lots of socks - all items in high demand by the vulnerable population who often struggle with accessing such essential things, especially in a pandemic.
