Support Side by side & Get a Special "We've Got Your Back" T-Shirt!
Give OUT Day is a 24-hour online fundraising event that raises critically needed funds for nonprofit organizations that serve the LGBTQ+ populations across the US. It is the ONLY national day of giving for the LGBTQ+ community and it will occur April 19, 2018!
Side by Side raised over $6,000 in 2017 through Give OUT Day. These funds went toward maintaining their commitment to providing supportive communities for Virginia's LGBTQ+ youth to define themselves. This year our goal again is to raise $7,500 and get 250 donors. All funds raised will be used to support youth in crisis!
You can help us continue to sustain these critical services here’s how:
1. DONATE! - Make a donation to Side by Side on Give OUT Day (4/19/2018) of $10 or more. All unique donations of $10 or more qualify Side by Side to win additional monetary prizes through Give OUT Day. You can join the Facebook Event to be reminded to make your donation online. Worried you might forget to donate on 4/19/2018 you can make your donation now and schedule it to occur on 4/19/2018.
2. Get 5 Friends to Donate $10 or More! Side by Side can win additional monetary prizes for every unique donation of $10 or more so the more people we reach, even for a small amount of money (say $10), can make a big difference! If you can identify and recruit 5 friends or family members to donate $10 to Side by Side for Give OUT Day you will receive a special "We've Got Your Back" t-shirt! Come to our Give OUT Day Launch Party on April 12th 6pm-8pm at 804RVA to learn more! You can get them to schedule donations, pass you their credit card information to enter it for them or provide cash or check made out to Side by Side. Click here to down load the donation forms now!
3. Attend our Happy Hour - Plan to attend our Give OUT Day Happy Hour Celebration (6:00-9:00pm at Flora - 203 N. Lombardy) and invite friends and family as well! This event is a great chance to make your donation in person and connect with Side by Side staff, board members and fellow allies while having a great time! Expect music, food and fun! We’ll also be announcing the 10 for $10 challenge winner and day of donation challenge winners. Again this is a 21 and up event!
