community comes together for bloomindale rape victim

Here's an update on the Bloomingdale rape victim, the 18-year-old high school student in Tampa, Florida who was brutally beaten and raped while returning books to a public library last April. The attack left her with life-altering injuries that will require special care for the rest of her life, and her family needs help paying for it.

Friends and community members put together a fashion/talent show last weekend to raise funds for her care: Fashion Show To Benefit Library Rape Victim. Here's local news video from the evening of the event: Fashion for Compassion.

If you'd like to help, but couldn't make it out to the fundraiser, you can still contribute. A PayPal account for the Library Rape Assault Victim Fund has been set up under Michelle Phan at thericebunny@yahoo.com.
