Thanksgiving is just a few short weeks away, and as PFLAGers everywhere gather with family and friends, they will take time to remember all of the things for which they are thankful. Whether it's their local chapter that has been a source of support, a PFLAG friend or family member who has been a soft place to land during challenging times, or the national office for providing resources and education to make PFLAG work possible.
Whatever it is, whomever it is, we want to hear about it. Grab a camera, or a phone, or a pen and paper, and collect your #PFLAGThankful stories. Then, share them with us in one of the following ways:
- Email videos, photos, and stories to Communications Director Liz Owen at firstname.lastname@example.org. Put PFLAGThankful in the subject line, please.
- Share videos, photos, and stories right to Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #PFLAGThankful -- or Tweet: I am #PFLAGThankful for -- and we'll be sure to share your posts widely with others.
Also, please take a moment as you gather around the table with your loved ones to offer up your collective thanks for the life-affirming work PFLAG has achieved in thousands of families and hundreds of communities by sharing your generous spirit via the #PFLAGThankful fundraising campaign. Pass a gratitude hat, or plate! around your Thanksgiving table, and send your collections back to PFLAG; help us continue the work we started together in 1973--nearly 45 years ago--for the next 45 years and beyond. To make your donation, visit pflag.org/pflagthankful.
We are grateful for every PFLAG chapter, every member, every friend, every ally as we head into this holiday season. Together we are doing more than just changing laws, we are changing the way we think and act as families, all across the country and around the world.
