Community: Philanthropy

Thank You Tuesday
Every Tuesday we contribute three percent of our gross sales to a charitable organization. Our hope is to increase awareness about these organizations and the good work they do in our community while providing them financial support. We offer our customers a chance to contribute through their purchases -- giving back to the community while getting something they love. We support a different organization each season.
 
Current Recipient: PFLAG
PFLAG promotes the health and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons, their families and friends through: support, to cope with an adverse society; education, to enlighten an ill-informed public; and advocacy, to end discrimination and to secure equal civil rights. Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays provides opportunity for dialogue about sexual orientation and gender identity, and acts to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity.

PFLAG Lincoln is providing the initial funding to establish a much needed emergency fund for UNL students who, in a crisis situation, will benefit from a grant to help prevent homelessness, cover their rent, or pay their health insurance. A financial crisis is sometimes the result of being cut off financially (and emotionally) for coming out or starting to transition. This fund will be housed at the University of Nebraska Foundation (UNF) and contributions are now being accepted to put money into this fund. PFLAG Lincoln wants to help with a .5/1 match.
