Joyful Heart has made it through the first round of voting in the Chase Community Giving program thanks to your votes. And from now until midnight on May 25, we need your help to win $500,000 to fund our BIG IDEA to help end the backlog of untested rape kits.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of individuals report a sexual assault to the police. After an assault, survivors undergo a 4-6 hour exam to collect DNA and forensic evidence that goes into what is known as a rape kit. Today, over 200,000 untested kits sit in storage facilities across the US. Each untested rape kit represents lost justice for survivors.

With our $500,000, Joyful Heart will improve sexual violence response by ending the backlog of these untested kits. To do this we will:
  • Expand endthebacklog.org, the only site dedicated to raising public awareness about this issue
  • Publish the first-ever detailed account of how one city, LA, fixed its backlog
  • Partner with Detroit to help end their backlog of 10,000+ rape kits
  • Create victim-centered best practices that can be implemented nationwide

They are currently number 12 on the leaderboard.

I voted, and I also found it very interesting that 5 of the 10 charities above Joyful Heart involved either animal or plant life, or both. So roses and golden retrievers mean more to people than other people? Umm hmm, very interesting.Ermm

I'm a vegetarian (formerly vegan) and all for helping helpless animals, but that is major f**kery.

Also, I know it says you have to "like" Chase community giving, but you can "unlike" afterwards.

As for "accessing basic information", If you got to Privacy settings,  and click on "apps settings" you can get rid of whatever Apps, it's attached to your profile.

They are number 10 now!Thumbs Up I'm starting to worry that they won't make it to the top. I think I would be fine as long as one of those animal charities gets pushed down....Stern Smile
