We believe that the best way to fight hate is with love. Full-on, unyielding, pure-of-heart love.
So, that's why we're asking the rugby community to help us send some love into the universe through this campaign. For every "love" our fundraising post gets on Facebook, we'll donate a dollar to a worthy cause. Money will be split between an organization that supports LGBTQ youth (tbd) and Play Rugby USA, which fosters positive values, sportsmanship, and inclusion through rugby.
In addition, due to requests, we'll be turning this design into a t-shirt which will raise money for the two organizations mentioned above.
For our on-the-ground effort, one of our PRL team members will be attending vigils in Orlando and giving out "more love, less hate" buttons to show our support for the LBGTQ and rugby communities. Please contact us at email@example.com if you'd like to get in touch with them.
Thanks in advance to everyone who has supported this campaign and the Orlando community.
Yours in rugby, PRL
