BOLDER GIVING, ARTFUL LIVING

Empowering LGBT Youth

Dear Friends, Family and Community Partners,

 
On Thursday, May 9th
In conjunction with Bolder Giving's National Give OUT Day
Project Reach will host:
 
"Bolder Giving...Artful Living...Empowering LGBT Youth"
An evening with "America's Got Talent" finalist, Alice Tan Ridley, 
sculptor Paul Kaulfers and the Project Reach community
 
Thursday, May 9th 6pm-9pm
@ Project Reach
 
A benefit supporting the OUTRIGHT Consortium and its commitment
to challenging the invisibility and marginalization of
Immigrant, Undocumented, and In-The-Closet LGBT youth.
 
Could you please consider making a contribution to Project Reach between NOW and May 9th?
 
 
2) to learn more about Give OUT Day, go to:http://giveout.razoo.com/giving_events/giveout13/home
 
 
It is less important how much you give and more important that we have as many donors as possible donate on this site so that new donors, who don't know Project Reach, will be drawn to possibly contribute when they see our page with all of our supporters and friends.
 
Our goal is to raise $25,000 by May 9th and grow a larger, more sustainable, grassroots donor base from community members, family & friends, whose hard earned dollars when contributed make them OUR major donors!
 
 
It will be a day that will acknowledge the many years that Project Reach and its many partners have brought together marginalized communities who would otherwise have never met and partnered with them to fight against homophobia, heterosexism, sexism, misogyny and many other forms of discrimination.
 
thanks so much for your support!
