After days filled with shopping and deal-hunting following Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday is HERE and offers us a moment of reflection and generosity just before the holiday whirlwind sweeps us off our feet. And, this Giving Tuesday, Colorproof is taking pride in reaffirming our support for the It Gets Better Project, an organization we’ve proudly worked with in the past.
While the holiday season usually shimmers with joy and coziness for many, it can be an incredibly tough time for others around the world, especially those who grapple with feelings of isolation and non-acceptance. This is the reality often faced by LGBTQ+ youth. Through our ongoing alliance with It Gets Better, our mission remains unwavering: to overcome these challenges and infuse hope and light into the LGBTQ+ community.
LGBTQ+ Youth: Navigating Real-Life Hurdles
You might recall us sharing some eye-opening statistics about the struggles and unique challenges that LGBTQ+ youth encounter. Unfortunately, the holiday season doesn't magically sweep these issues away; in fact, it can actually magnify them. Returning home to unsupportive or rejecting family members, mixed with traditional holiday pressures, can make this time of year exceptionally challenging for many. That's why we believe in the power of connecting with allies during these moments. At Colorproof, we consider it essential to support It Gets Better, not just during Pride Month in June, but whenever our LGBTQ+ community needs it most.
About the It Gets Better Project
The It Gets Better Project is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a steadfast dedication to uplifting, empowering, and connecting LGBTQ+ youth around the globe. It all started back in 2010 as one of YouTube's most successful viral campaigns, and it has continued to provide critical support and hope to LGBTQ+ youth worldwide. Beyond its roots in storytelling and media, the project now offers educational resources through It Gets Better EDU, reaching 18 countries beyond the U.S. through It Gets Better Global.
Colorproof: A Tapestry of Diversity and Inclusivity
As a brand deeply rooted in celebrating color, we wholeheartedly embrace and honor all colors, voices, and personal expressions. Colorproof thrives by nurturing our ever-growing, diverse community through transparency, inclusivity, and open communication. Together with It Gets Better, we are committed to creating connections and fostering togetherness in communities worldwide. As the It Gets Better Project aptly puts it, "every dollar donated is a commitment to a brighter and more hopeful future for LGBTQ+ youth." Through storytelling and educational initiatives funded by these contributions, It Gets Better tirelessly strives to manifest that brighter future.
