THE STORY:

I’m turning 22 today and I would like to use this opportunity to make a difference. I would love your help to raise money for the Viet Pride Scholarship.

During my time off from college, I’ve learned about Viet Pride and their foundation to help the disadvantaged LGBT group in Vietnam. These scholarships are awarded to the most disadvantaged LGBT group and help them get access to education and a better livelihood. Many of them got forced out of their homes because of their sexual orientation. Others have to face prejudice, discrimination and homophobia everyday from their society.

Being surrounded by a supportive family and friends who love me regardless of my sexual identity, I can’t imagine going through such hardships.

I’d love your help to raise a scholarship for the LGBT Street Youth to reach $1000, with my personal contribution of $200. This fund will be given to a homeless LGBT kid to enhance their livelihood and also expand their educations opportunity.

Please help make a difference by contributing to this scholarship. For each donation, you will receive a thank you postcard from me (from Vietnam!)

Every small contribution counts and I hope we can make an impact on a young person in need: to make them feel safe, accepted and loved again:-)

Thank you in advance for your support!

Sincerely,

Cici

CiCi -- This is a great way to celebrate your birthday! I'm proud to have a friend who would come up with something like this. As a member of LGBTQ community who caught a break during the coming out process, I wanted to donate what I could spare this week for those less fortunate. I also look forward to a postcard from you! 3 years ago
