Blush Fundraises for Local LGBTQ Youth Organizations for Pride 2019

At Blush Novelties, we celebrate the beautiful diversity of the human race every day of the year. During Pride Month, we make it a priority to give back to our local community. This year, Blush pledged to donate a portion of all sales from the Avant Pride Collection during the month of June 2019 to benefit the Ali Forney Center and the Masakhane Center.

The Ali Forney Center is dedicated to providing safe housing and health services to homeless LGBTQ youth across the country. “Since AFC’s launch with just six beds in a church basement, the organization has grown to become the largest agency dedicated to LGBTQ homeless youths in the country—assisting nearly 1,400 youths per year through a 24-hour Drop-In Center which provides over 70,000 meals annually, medical and mental health services through an on-site clinic, and a scattered-site housing program.”

The Masakhane Center provides sex-positive resources for young people in Newark, NJ and the surrounding areas. Through sex education workshops, the volunteer staff opens up conversations with teens and young adults to help them make safer and healthier decisions. The Masakhane Center hosts workshops at local schools, youth organizations, drug and alcohol treatment centers, parent groups, shelters, and many other places.

Though our sales efforts of the Avant Pride Collection, we were able to donate $600 to each of these charities! Giving back to our community and helping to spread awareness about these amazing organizations is a top priority for us at Blush; as industry leaders, we hope to lead by example. We will keep working towards the day when acceptance and love for all people is the standard in society! 💜
