Hello friends and family and Happy First Day of Spring! Tomorrow I will embark upon the 35th year of my life and in honor of this occasion, I have a personal message to share. In lieu of gifts or party plans, I'm asking my loved ones to consider giving to an organization that is near and dear to my heart. Four years ago a handful of passionate individuals and myself decided to start our very own 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the advocacy of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) students who attend Texas State University by providing educational achievement and leadership development scholarships. The Bobcat Pride Scholarship Fund (BPSF) has been and continues to be a labor of love that successfully promotes social justice while making a difference in the lives of students.
My involvement in this group as a co-founder and member of the board is far more rewarding than I ever imagined. Watching our scholars grow in their personal development while feeling supported in their goals and their whole identity, is truly amazing. With the help of our donors, we have been able to support 10 deserving students and provided over $10,000 in scholarships. I am also excited to announce that in the near future BPSF will be expanding the fund to start providing emergency funds to LGBTQ students in financial crisis.
So if you are able to contribute, there would be no better present I could imagine for my birthday this year. You can make my day and help me towards my goal of raising $1000. Because after all, love is love!
