$5,700 RAISED FOR PRIDE 🏳️🌈
Mission has Pride. Yes, we do. Mission has Pride and so do YOU! 🏳️🌈
We’re brimming with PRIDE to announce, through the massive efforts of our Mission community, we raised a staggering $5,700 for our 2nd quarter [Charity of Choice], Prism United!!!
These resources + heightened awareness will support Prism in their noble efforts responding to the comprehensive needs of LGBTQ+ youth on the Alabama Gulf Coast.
LGBTQ youth are disproportionately more likely to struggle with disordered eating, depression, and suicide than their peers.
Prism United is working to counter those odds through advocacy, support groups, referrals to LGBTQ-knowledgable + affirming mental health professionals and purposeful programming for LGBTQ youth and the people who love them.
We spent a full month raising dollars and celebrating our most colorful friends through a combination of efforts including:
🏳️🌈 Limited-edition Pride shirts
🏳️🌈 Pride packs
🏳️🌈 Pride donations [+ Mission’s dollar for dollar match!]
🏳️🌈 Drag Show + Mo’ Community Event
🏳️🌈 Pride Silent Auction
🏳️🌈 Monthly membership infusions
🏳️🌈 +Unexpected funds Mission received we are fully reinvesting back into our community + local non-profits.
Thank you for standing up, speaking out and showing your love for all love every single day.
Thank you for supporting our efforts to create a place where all are welcome exactly as they are.
Thank you for seeing need and responding to the call.
Thank you for allowing us to do our hearts’ work.
