In the spirit of this holiday season, JoinTheImpact invites you to join us for the season of giving and come together under the banner of that which unites us all: Love. Let us go above and beyond. Let us set aside our own struggles, our own needs, to demonstrate to the nation and the world the collective power of the LGBTQ community to be a force of betterment for all society. We will rise above the divisions to recognize that we are all human, we are all working to carve out a space for ourselves in the world, and we all want the same simple opportunities. Beginning on November 28th, 2008 and going until we Light Up the Night for Equal Rights on December 20th, JoinTheImpact is launching the first national LGBTQ Food Drive for Equality! Through this event, we will work to reach out not only to those who have worked alongside us, but to organizations and individuals that fear us and oppose our cause. Our efforts to alleviate the hunger America is facing in this difficult time will be indiscriminate with regards to creed or political philosophy. These are gaps we can and must bridge if we are going to achieve equality in this country. So on Saturday, Dec. 20th, leading up to our LUTN vigil, each city will be organizing a massive charitable effort to demonstrate the positive impact the LGBT community can make. The effort has already begun in Cleveland, OH, so look to JoinTheImpact.com for a step by step model to maximize the impact in your city or region. Join us for this important event, and on Saturday, we will demonstrate the powerful impact the LGBT movement can have in the lives of ordinary Americans.
