Katie Suppes' 12 Days of Giving Page

Although 2021 has been another challenging year, it has been an incredibly special year for me as I became a first-time parent. (Sorry Autumn, kids are just different than cats!) I know firsthand now that being a parent is scary stuff. There’s childproofing the house, making sure the bathwater isn’t too hot, and navigating this pesky global pandemic. Of all the things to fear for your child, though, growing up LGBTQ shouldn’t have to be one of them. 

Here in the Lehigh Valley, we can imagine a future where people growing up LGBTQ enjoy every opportunity and are surrounded by nothing but love and affirmation. It’s possible to imagine because we’ve already witnessed a generous and enthusiastic network of LGBTQ people and allies contribute resources for a community center, and we’ve seen that community center grow exponentially over five years. Our Center celebrates queer identities and experiences through a wide variety of arts programming and the annual Lehigh Valley Pride festival. Our Center supports LGBTQ people in accessing information and resources to address both their physical and mental health. Our Center dismantles prejudice, disinformation, and disadvantage through its advocacy efforts and training programs. And of course, our Center is surrounding queer youth with friends and caring adults five days a week!

I’m so excited to see who my child grows up to be, and so proud to know that whatever the identity, whatever the experience it is that awaits us, Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center and a strong community of caring neighbors are here to make it a happy and healthy one. I hope I can count on you to be a part of this generous community of support. Regardless of how much you can give, the act of giving means so much to me and to all of us here at the Center. 

We need to raise $36,000 from individuals in the final 12 days of 2021. During these 12 Days of Giving, I'm asking you if you can participate with a donation to ensure the LGBTQ+ community starts the new year on a high note!

All donations are tax-deductible, and you will receive an official tax acknowledgement receipt in the mail.

And don't forget, if your employer matches charitable donations, please don't forget to let them know about your gift as well!


P.S. When you make a monthly donation today, you help us reach our goal AND you allow us to sustain these programs for all the futures to come!
