You may have seen me wearing a Choose Love t-shirt on the road and in pictures. That shirt is the calling card of an organization called Help Refugees. When I knew I wanted to assist refugees, this wonderful group was the place I started. They are pioneers in a new movement in humanitarian aid: fast, flexible, and transparent. They go directly where the need is greatest, helping almost 1 million people. I began by donating all the proceeds from my t-shirt sales to them. And then I learned about a group called Say It Loud, supported by Help Refugees, who specifically aid LGBTQI people who are migrating and/or seeking asylum. I met their founder and knew I had to get involved.
I can't do this alone. I need you to join me, so I'm going to do my best to make it easy for you to help out too. There are lots of ways to get involved from special Choose Love merch, to individual crowdfunding campaigns, to showing your support for Help Refugees on social media.
I still believe that together we can make a difference in the real lives of LGBTQI refugees around the world.
Thank you for listening. Join me!
