DRY - JUL AUG SEP

Supporting Pride Foundation Australia

Pride Foundation Australia

Pride Foundation Australia (formerly GALFA) General Appeal

2019 ----- JULY AUGUST SEPTEMBER ---- 2019

I have decided to go dry for three months, starting on the 1st of July. That's right. No alcohol, no espresso martinis, no fireball shots, NADA.

During these three months, I am calling upon all of my friends and family to help raise funds for Pride Foundation Australia. A foundation that supports charitable activities that benefit LGBTQIA+ people and allied communities in Australia by advancing equity for the most disadvantaged LGBTQIA+ Australians.

I have set a goal to raise $1500 over the next three months. I will be donating $100 every month towards this goal (money I would otherwise spend on alcohol). 

This foundation and the cause it supports is something very close to home. As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, I have witnessed and heard my fair share of discrimination, social exclusion, mental health issues and physical abuse. Things that all need to change, things that the Pride Foundation Australia endeavour to support and ultimately end.

It would mean the world to me if you can help me reach my target of $1500.

 

Thank you,
BD

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

  • LGBTQIA+ Australians experience more mental health problems due to discrimination, abuse and violence, and marginalisation.
  • LGBTQIA+ Australians are less likely to access health services because they fear or have experienced discrimination from these services.
  • LGBTQIA+ Australians with disabilities are at any even greater disadvantage than others with disability.
  • LGBTQIA+ Australians are twice as likely to experience homelessness in their lifetime.
