The 3rd annual Funky Designs Pride Month fundraiser for The Trevor Project took place at shows in May and June 2022. I found a way to get all 6 colors of the rainbow into a single concrete jewelry stone, so the Pride Jewelry looked a whole lot different than it did in previous years. The fundraiser featured Concrete & Steel pendants, earrings, and bracelets with stones inspired by the rainbow and trans flags. Pieces were also offered on Facebook and Instagram for a short time.
25% of the purchase price of all pride jewelry was donated to The Trevor Project at the end of June. In all, nearly $775 was raised to help in the battle against teen LGTBQ+ suicide. The board of directors of The Trevor Project tripled donations during the last few days of Pride Month, so our efforts generated a total $2323.88. In addition to this amount, I know that my customers also donated at least another $175, inspired by these efforts. I truly appreciate all the support and enthusiasm for this fundraiser. The fundraiser will definitely return for Pride Month 2023.
