It's June and you know what that means, Happy Pride! UPDATE: Pride Month may be over but don't you stop saying "Gay!" Your Wednesday shopping raised $900 for The Network/LA Red!
gather here is proudly queer-owned and thrilled to employ a number of LGBTQ+ folx. In May we received a fundraiser donation request and we countered with, "why not be our We Care Wednesday recipient for June?" We're excited to share that The Network/LA Red, a Boston-based nonprofit that works to end partner abuse and support survivors in LGBTQ+, polyamorous, and kink communities is our June recipient. From Miriam, the grassroots fundraising coordinator for The Network/LA Red, "The funds make a huge difference and being visible in community spaces does, too. As we say, there are always survivors in the room, so it's really impactful to have information about resources visible."
*Since launching the We Care Wednesday initiative in January 2017 we have donated over $57,905 to a variety of nonprofits and mutual aid funds doing essential work in our community as well as other places. From the Mayor's Disaster Fund to BAGLY to Movement Voter Project and Found In Translation. We select organizations that we feel represent not only our commitment to a better, more equitable world but also our desire to "do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can."
