After days of shopping and deals, Giving Tuesday provides a moment of reflection and generosity. This Giving Tuesday, Colorproof is proud to support the It Gets Better Project. Typically, the holidays are a source of joy and light, but for many around the world, this time of year is particularly hard, especially if you feel isolated or not accepted by those around you. For many LGBTQ+ youth, this is their reality. Through our partnership with It Gets Better, we hope to help reverse and instill hope and light to the LGBTQ+ community.
We have mentioned some sobering statistics around LGBTQ+ youth on our blog before and unfortunately, the holidays do not ease any of these problems and can often make going about daily life more difficult. Going home to relatives who are not accepting, and often outright rejecting, coupled with traditional holiday anxiety, is one of the many reasons the holidays are so hard. To combat this, one of the most important and impactful actions is to connect with allies during this time. Therefore we, at Colorproof, find it vital to support It Gets Better, not just during Pride month in June, but whenever our support is most needed.
As a brand rooted in color, we embrace and celebrate all colors, voices and personal expressions. Colorproof embraces its ever-growing, colorful community through transparency, diversity and open communication and we join It Gets Better in striving to achieve connection and togetherness in communities around the world. According to It Gets Better Project, “every dollar donated is a commitment to a brighter and more hopeful future for LGBTQ+ youth” and through storytelling and education initiatives funded by these donations, It Gets Better works hard to achieve that future.

The It Gets Better Project is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that strives to uplift, empower and connect LGBTQ+ youth around the globe. Created in 2010 as the result of one of the most successful viral campaigns in YouTube's history, the It Gets Better Project provides critical support and hope to LGBTQ+ youth around the world by leveraging the power of media to reach millions of people each year.
The project has expanded its origins in storytelling and media to include educational resources through It Gets Better EDU and reaches 18 countries outside of the U.S. through It Gets Better Global.
