Stomping for Digital Civil Liberties

Every year, people astonish and amaze us with the inventive ways in which they raise funds for EFF. EFF supporters have given away free games, shaved people's hair into mohawks, and drawn cartoons to show their support for digital civil liberties. For the second year in a row, Michael Wigren of WKID "Froggy" Radio in Vevay, Indiana, has chosen the potentially dangerous pastime of grape-stomping as the medium through which he demonstrates his devotion to EFF.

Wigren is participating in the 2nd Annual Media Celebrity Grape Stomp for Charity in Vevay, Indiana, where newscasters, radio personalities, and other local celebrities will go toe-to-toe in grape barrels to out-stomp the competition. Each of the top three celebrities will walk away with a check for their favorite charity organization. The event will take place on August 28th at noon, during the Swiss Wine Festival on the Paul Ogle Riverfront Park in Vevay, Indiana at the official grape stomping stage. If you are in the area, stop by to show your support for Wigren, WKID, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation!
