February is the most exciting month for some since Valentine’s day is coming….
I never have Valentine gift from a special someone, but i do receive ones from my friends and family. That’s special and meaningful enough for me.
This year i want to do something just as meaningful. I, once again, seek your generous support to raise at least one-year scholarship for Viet Pride, each worth $1000, starting with my personal contribution of $500.

Being a Vietseed mentor has been very rewarding to me where i learned what an ordinary me can do to make an impact to a student in need.
Upon my trip to Vietnam, i learned about Viet Pride and that they are trying to help disadvantaged LGBT youth to have better access to education and better lives. Many of those are not only facing financial hardship to access education but also prejudice from their very own society. Some are kicked out of their own homes. Some live in fear. Some are struggling each day simply just to make a few bucks a day to survive. I hope to contribute humbly to the cause that Viet Pride is doing, helping these young people in the most meaningful way, one at a time.
Share the love to get the love! Every donor will receive a post card from the lovely San Francisco because you just did something awesome and you deserve something nice this Valentine's month.
Every contribution counts, no matter how big how small.
About Viet Pride Scholarship:
Viet Pride Scholarship was first introduced in 2013 with a mission to assist disadvantaged LGBT youth to acquire vocational training, undergraduate education, or English enrichment. The scholarship hopes to serve as a source of pride and empowerment for those who are strained by circumstance.
