I wrote earlier this month about a charitable challenge offered by actor Kevin Bacon. Bacon’s Six Degrees organization (in conjunction with Network for Good) will give a matching grant of $10,000 to the six non-profits with the highest number of unique donors before March 31st at 11:59pm ET.
The Family Pride Coalition is battling for one of these spots, and is now in fourth place. Family Pride is the group behind events such as Family Week in Provincetown and getting LGBT families to participate visibly in the White House Egg Roll. They publish a slew of resources for LGBT parents and parents’ groups. Executive Director Jennifer Chrisler has also been a balancing voice when those on the ultra-right speak against our families in the media.
The contest is all about the number of donors, so contributions of even $10 (the minimum to pay by credit card) will help. (Multiple donations from a single individual only count once.) You can donate through the image in this post or the link in my right-hand sidebar. If you have your own site or blog, put up a badge and encourage your readers to participate.
Two more days—and remember, even small donations count!
