The Personal Stories Project and One Million Kids for Equality are pleased to announce the date and location for our 2nd Annual Spring Mixer and Garden Party! Food and alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverages and entertainment will be provided.
10% of the proceeds from this event will be donated to an LGBTQ youth-serving organization. 45% will go towards the Personal Stories Project’s digital storytelling program, and the remaining 45% will go towards One Million Kids for Equality’s public storytelling events.
Guests will have the opportunity to participate in an optional hands-on team building activity, helping to assemble personal hygiene kits to be donated to an LGBTQ youth-specific transitional housing facility.
The Personal Stories Project
Personal stories are the most powerful tool we have to erase fear, give hope, and unite people. To that end, our mission is pretty simple and straight-forward: we collect and share stories from members of the LGBTQ community and our allies to help change hearts, minds, and lives. We promote activism, advocacy and support for our community through the sharing of personal stories and connect our readers with other charities that are meaningful to those that have had the courage to share their own personal stories. www.personalstoriesproject.org
One Million Kids for Equality
One Million Kids for Equality works to engage, educate, and empower LGBTQ youth and the children of LGBTQ parents to speak out about the issues that affect their daily lives. We work with a diverse group of partner organizations, youth and their allies around the world to help elevate their stories and create change in legislatures, courts, and most importantly hearts and minds. We believe that through sharing stories, youth are able to harness the power of the personal story and use it to create awareness and positive change for all Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning (LGBTQ) people. www.onemillionkids.org
In-Kind Donations for Raffle and Silent Auction
By popular demand we will again be holding both a raffle and silent auction. In-kind donations of food and beverage, bottles of wine, raffle and silent auction prizes are welcome (and very much appreciated). Do you work for a restaurant or a hotel or have connections? A gift certificate for a stay, brunch or dinner would be great! Gift baskets, autographed copies of books, etc. are other great raffle items.
We will again be distributing gift bags at the end of the event. Last year we included pens, notebooks, keychains, gift cards and other fun and useful items. This year we’re expecting 100 people so we’d love 100 of anything you might like to include in our bag to help spread the word about your product or service.
