For my 29th Birthday, I'm asking that you make a $29 (or whatever you can afford - higher or lower) to the Human Rights Campaign. HRC is the Nation's largest LGBTQ+ civil rights organization.
Many of you know the vital work that HRC does to move equality foward in our country. This organization works hard to get pro-equality candidates elected and create a country that is inclusive for all.
Furthermore, this organization has invested in me personally. When I was 23, I started volunteering for HRC - with no professional experience. HRC staff and fellow volunteers took the time to invest in my personal and professional growth and i'll always be grateful. I've never met a fellow HRC volunteer or staff memeber that wasn't immediately a friend. I wouldn't be where I am today if it was not for HRC. So do me a favor and join me in donating $29. ;)
