On behalf of The Pride Tree, I would like to thank everyone that participated in our “30 days of Pride '' events and activities. While this was our first year, we're already excited for next year's 30 Days of Pride! Some significant highlights this month for me were our LGBTQ+ roundtable with Susie Lee, watching videos from honorees and raising awareness of Pride Tree through building relationships. I also enjoyed growing our social media, and of course, fundraising to meet our long-term goals as an organization.
Our next event is our July Back to School fundraiser. Our goal is to raise $4,800 by August 1, 2021. It cost $400 to send one student to camp. Your donations help us create inclusive and accessible programming for LGBTQ+ youth and allies. Cost for campers covers campground fees, food, insurance, supplies, transportation, etc. While it costs $400 to send one child to Camp Pride Tree, we strive to make all our programming 100% free for our youth participants and are grateful for your support!
Our goal is to raise $35,000 by summer 2022, to have a successful Camp Pride Tree experience for our LGBTQ+ youth and allies. We are asking for support in every way, whether volunteering, donating, following, sharing, and being open to new conversations and ideas. Thank you and have a wonderful holiday!
