Slap reader Jen writes in with a really great fundraiser idea in memory of Raymond Taavel: “I’m a displaced Haligonian in Toronto, and am organizing what I am hoping will end up being a Canada-wide initiative. I’m also an avid crossfitter, so I’ve planned a tribute workout for raymond, on May 17th (the International Day Aganinst Homophobia and Transphobia). It’s a fundraiser for the Youth Project in halifax—they do the kind of work to help create the kind of world Raymond imagined.”
Great idea, Jen! If anyone is interested in helping raise some money for a worthy cause, and potentially win some nifty prizes in the process, check out the event website!
