Charity Month in Review -June 2017- The Trevor Project

Pride Month = Our Favorite Month of the Year

Giving back is why we started this company, and we couldn't have found a better cause to give to for Pride Month, The Trevor Project.

The Trevor Project was found in 1998, focused on suicide prevention in the youth LGBTQ+ community. Starting out in California and inspired by the film Trevor, about a young gay person who committed suicide after being bullied by friends, the non-profit has grown nationally.

It became the first nationwide, around-the-clock crisis and suicide prevention helpline for LGBTQ youth, saving thousands of lives since its inception. 

We are proud to donate 10% of sales from in-store, online, and pride festival sales in June to this amazing organization.

Challenging Rape Culture, Supporting Survivors

(We’d like to begin by including a Content Warning for mentions of sexual assault throughout this blog. Take care of yourselves and read with caution, friends.)

It's been a long, stressful, and emotion-filled week. The Kavanaugh hearings have, for many - especially survivors of sexual assault - been emotionally exhausting. The current news cycle is triggering for many survivors. Because of this, RAINN's hotline has been overflowing with calls to a point they can’t keep up, Twitter has been overflowing with both support and contempt for Dr. Ford, and most of our conversations here at BLōFISH have centered around the news cycle and how we can help.

Sarah wanted a career that allowed her to see the world but also let her be a part of something bigger than herself. This led her to the military. She chose this path with a goal to, “become something more.” Along with serving our country, Sarah explained that her reason behind joining the Maven program was “to inspire others to be themselves and not be afraid to show who they are.”
