As someone who covers the LGBTQ community, we thought you might be interested in reading today's blog post on The Huffington Post regarding aNoteToMyKid.com, a new grassroots effort designed to give parents, family and friends of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning people the opportunity to share their unconditional love.

aNoteToMyKid.com: Heartwarming Messages of Love from Parents, Family and Friends of LGBT People
In searching for a way to give back to the LGBTQ community, Michael Volpatt and I created a aNoteToMyKid.com, a grassroots movement that gives everyone -- parents, family, and friends -- the opportunity to express unconditional love for the LGBTQ people in their lives. The nonprofit's purpose is to remind people that there is a lot of love out there, to bring family and friends closer together, and to give parents and others who may not know how to broach the subject of sexuality an opportunity to learn from example.
The site was inspired when Rosey, a close friend of Michael's, contacted him because her son was coming out of the closet and she wasn't sure how to best deal with it. She asked Michael if she could speak with his mother, Sharon, with the hope that she'd ultimately learn how to be there for her son during his coming out process.
