2021 could not have ended on a better note for The Colors of Love. A successful telethon would allow us to spread Christmas cheer to more people in need this year than last. Thanks to the generosity of our most loyal supporters, we played the role of Gay Santa to 25 of the residents enrolled in New Alternative's programs while simultaneously guaranteeing the ability to deliver on our promise to Trinity Place Shelter that upon completion of their renovation, we would take care of their rec. room. Both organizations provided our donors with one of two unique ways to get involved in actively creating joy for someone else out of a simple gesture of Christmas Kindness. The Trinity Rec Room project will be unfolding in the coming weeks - just WAIT till you see what we've got up our sleeve.
2022 kicked off with just as much good news as 2021 ended for us. With our 501c3 approval from the IRS in hand, and just as we are about to file our first ever tax statement, The Colors of Love has begun to find unique opportunities to become visible within the world around us, as our informational table becomes present throughout Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey. Interactive ways for everyone to get involved - donors, parents, supportive teens.
To keep things in perspective, I would like to leave you with two news articles. Both are recent. Like 2022 recent. They speak to the current affairs of the homeless NYC LGBTQ+ population - a mecca for most LGBTQ+ kids from all over the country. I made it a point to read them this morning knowing I was coming here to write this. Knowing I had nothing but good news to share. Knowing that our fight to spread kindness is always going to be considered the underdog.
