From Anthony Timiraos, CEO/President of Our Fund in Fort Lauderdale:
Our Fund is helping to coordinate a national initiative here in South Florida that will engage hundreds of organizations and people on a single day to give in support of the LGBTQ community. GiveOUT Day is scheduled for May 9th, 2013 but already, local non-profit organizations have begun to promote this web event. We have about 25 organizations participating in South Florida.
From GiveOUT Day:
Give OUT Day is a new national initiative that will engage hundreds of organizations and mobilize thousands of people on a single day across the country to give in support of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender & queer community. It is a chance for LGBTQ groups large and small, to work across the wide range of issues and activities that matter to the LGBTQ community from sports to policy change, families to the arts. It is a chance for members of the LGBTQ community and our many allies to stand up and show our support for our community together on one day. It is a chance to make history, we hope you’ll join us!
