A Light in the Darkness: Harbor House Scare-A-Thon 3

Like the last two years, I will be taking part in a fund-raiser for Harbor House of Appleton / Fox Cities. (If you do not know, this is a shelter for victims of domestic abuse.) The idea is that YOU pledge either a flat amount or a per-film amount, and for each film I watch you agree to pledge that amount. (For example, if I watch 50 movies and you pledge 0.10, your end donation will be $5.00.)

What does Harbor House use the money for? Glad you asked…

  • $20 provides support groups for a child from a violent home. These groups provide a safe space where information on domestic violence can be shared and children and teens can come together for support.
  • $30 provides two hours of 24-hour crisis telephone services, establishing a potentially life-saving link with the community.
  • $50 provides advocacy and support to one battered woman in obtaining a potentially life-saving restraining order.
  • $100 provides two hours of preventive domestic violence education in the classroom.
  • $250 provides five days of safe shelter for a battered woman and her children.

In 2010, 88 movies were watched, for a total of $345.48 raised!

In 2011, 100 movies were watched, for a total of $670 raised! That is phenomenal! (But we can do better this year.) The rules for me are simple — movies must be watched in their entirety from 12:01am October 1st to 11:59pm October 31 (though if I’m 3/4 through a film on the final night, I will count that). At least HALF need to be movies I have never seen before, and I will be writing reviews for EVERY film watched (even ones I have already seen).

Also like the last two years, I will be competing with Aaron “Dr. AC” Christensen.

Pledges: Stacey B. ($25 flat); Andrea W. ($60 flat); Joan R. ($60 flat); Lois L. ($50 flat); Dana F. ($20 flat); Dale S. ($20 flat); Nancy M. ($20 flat); Ruth N. ($200 flat!); LuAnn ($100 flat); Kirsten R. ($20 flat); Sarah M. ($25 flat); Chelsea A. ($25 flat) (Bold = Paid)
