Buttervly

I apologize for all the squinty eyes in the photos. Needless to say it was incredibly sunny outside and I was facing the sun making it much more difficult to look into the camera normally. In some of the photos not posted, it sorta looked like one of those ugly snapchats you only send to your best friend. It was painful and awkward to view....
So today I wanted to talk about a really amazing organization started by a group of high schoolers. The organization Buttervly is aimed to raise awarness for sexual assaults happening in high schools. It never occurred to me that rape is common in high schools around the country. This really shocked and upset me because no one should ever have to go through such a traumatic experience and think it was their fault. On the Buttervly site you can read personal stories of peoples experiences and how it affected them. The wonderful thing about this organization is that it is powered by teens for teens to start a dialogue on teen rape and to end rape culture. I feel very strongly about the cause and I totally recommend going on their site to see what you can do or share, like and spread the word on this amazing non profit organization.
More next week!
