Rachel Aldiss is fundraising for Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust

Rachel Aldiss is fundraising for Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I have been on placement at the Cardiff Blues as a intern sport therapist for the last year.In June 2014 just before I started my placement, Wales international Owen Williams sustained a serious spinal injury whilst playing for Cardiff Blues in the World cup 10s in Singapore. The money raised will help support Owen and other players in a similar situation in their recovery, both short term and long term.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

ACLU of Oregon’s Mobile Justice | ACLU of Oregon.




The ACLU of Oregon Mobile Justice smartphone app was created to empower individuals to hold Oregon law enforcement agencies accountable for their actions. Read our press release about the app. It has four main features:

RECORD – allows individuals to capture exchanges between police officers and themselves or other community members in video files that are automatically emailed to the ACLU of Oregon. 

WITNESS – gives individuals the option to alert nearby Mobile Justice App users when they are stopped by police in order to  witness and document the interaction. 

REPORT – gives individuals the option to provide a more-detailed account of their interactions with police in an incident report, which will be transmitted directly to the ACLU of Oregon.

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS – provides an overview of your rights in Oregon when encountering law enforcement.

When interacting with law enforcement, exercise caution when attempting to use the app to document your exchange. Your safety depends on your ability to clearly communicate your actions and to remain calm.

  1. Announce that you are reaching for your phone.
  2. Announce that you are attempting to access the app to record the exchange.
  3. If the officer forbids or prevents you from doing so, do not argue or resist. Follow the officers instructions. If your rights have been violated, your attorney will argue your case later. 
  4. If the officer attempts to touch your screen in an effort to destroy the evidence you’ve captured, don’t worry. The moment the recording is stopped it will automatically be sent to the ACLU of Oregon.

*The app is only available on the Android at this time. An iPhone version will follow.
