The Love With Us project is my 2020 birthday campaign, to raise money for some of the causes
I care about. I found myself laughing and thinking about how nice the design of those old
shopping bags were, with a message of simple gratitude: Thank you for Shopping with Us! I
feel like that's what we need in 2020 right now. Simple gratitude and a desire to care for
those around us.
In a year where the world is in so much pain and turmoil, there are always the little things
we can do to make our communities and friends, the people we care about, happier and safer,
and empowered to be the best humans they can be. 2020 is not over, and I'll be damned if
we're going to let it end in the same crazy way it began.
I decided to focus my efforts on 4 organizations that I really believe in:
The Trevor Project is the leading national
organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to
lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning youth. Visit
Black Lives Matter is a grassroots, volunteer-run,
social-justice nonprofit organization focused on the empowerment and liberation
of Blacks and other people of color through advocacy and direct action. Visit Here.
Everytown for Gun Safety is an American
nonprofit organization which advocates for gun control and against gun violence.
Planned Parenthood delivers vital
reproductive health care, sex education, and information to millions of people
I had an incredible pouring out of support on the project's Instagram page from friends and family and people I didn't even know. They made this birthday one of the best of my life.
