Diva Dirt, in the past 18 months has grown into one of the most popular websites on the Internet and a must read for any women’s wrestling fan. With a growing readership of fans as well as those in the industry, we feel it’s time to use our website to give back.
Diva Dirt Gives Back will be an entire month of fundraising and fun, to take place in October 2009. Through Diva Dirt Gives Back, which we hope will be an annual event on our calendar, fans will have the chance to bid and win unique memorabilia from their favourite Divas, Knockouts, women of wrestling and more. All this while raising money for charity too, it’s a win-win situation!
In the months before October, we will be reaching out to and collecting donations of memorabilia including ring worn wrestling gear, signed goodies and much more from the women that this site is all about! Divas, Knockouts, stars from SHIMMER and the independent circuit — the women that we write about and you guys visit to read about!
All proceeds will be split between our two nominated charities: Wrestler’s Rescue, a foundation that aims to help professional wrestlers created by former WWE Diva and ECW original, Dawn Marie. The second of our nominated charities is Susan G. Komen for the Cure, a breast cancer research charity. We feel as a women’s wrestling site and as fans of women’s wrestling, breast cancer research would be a fitting charity.
If you would like to make a donation to be put up for auction or contact us about getting involved, please send an e-mail to [email protected].
