Tie The Knot is excited to kick-off our annual end-of-year #GiveOUT campaign by supporting Western Justice Center/ENCOMPASS in their project, Stop Homophobic Bullying.
The project benefits the Creating Bias-Free Classrooms program. Creating Bias-Free Classrooms uses professional youth actors and live, scripted and improvisational theater to equip educators to build inclusive learning environments for students targeted by homophobia.
They have trained thousands of teachers, which will have a positive impact on the safety and inclusivity of LGBTQ (actual or perceived) students in their classes throughout their teaching careers.
Their goal? To get 500 donations on Giving Tuesday (11-27-18).
Funding this program will help them bring it to schools who otherwise couldn’t afford it. And LGBTQ students are among the highest targets for bullying, and teachers intervene in homophobic bullying less than other types of bullying.
To donate, please click here. You can also support their work through the purchase of one of our limited-edition bow ties, scarves, or pride collection products! 100% of profits go to support LGBTQ organizations fighting on the frontlines of equality! Stay tuned as we announce a new partnership each week, during the month of December!
And the holidays are just around the corner! These limited-edition items make great gifts and stocking stuffers!
