As we enter this Holiday Season, I am reflecting on what I am thankful for. The first thought that comes to mind is Campus Pride. My fellow peers, the staff, its leaders – the organization has been both a support network and a place for me to grow professionally. Campus Pride without a doubt has given me the tools and resources to not only survive, but to thrive.
I was first introduced to Campus Pride at one of its flagship programs, Camp Pride. This five day summer leadership camp served as a foundational experience and single-handedly changed my life. It set me on a path to be a fighter for equality and fairness. Through internships, fellowships, and living day-to-day, Campus Pride has been there giving me experiences I could not find anywhere else, like advocating for LGBTQ youth in New York or helping me gain leadership skills to lead my LGBTQ student group on campus.
Today, I am writing you to urge you to support and help empower LGBTQ youth through a donation to Campus Pride. Unlike many of the organizations I have worked with, Campus Pride is committed to hearing me, working for me, and empowering LGBTQ youth on college campuses. Together Campus Pride is making a difference for youth like me – please help us continue our work next year.
Please donate today for Giving Tuesday. All it takes is a gift of $50, $100 or more to support LGBTQ youth. Every dollar up to $10,000 will be matched until the end of the year. You can help us reach that goal with your end of the year gift – right now.
