Bowl-a-thon for Ten Oaks Project!
On March 23rd I'm participating in a bowl-a-thon here in Ottawa to raise funds for the Ten Oaks Project, a charity that hosts camps and events for LGBT people and their families. Even though LGBT families are becoming much more accepted in mainstream society, I feel there is still a place for organizations like this, where children can meet other children in similar circumstances. Also, LGBT youth who are struggling with acceptance at school will have a place to feel welcome and celebrated, perhaps making the impact of any prejudice they do experience somewhat less.
Please consider donating to my team, Balls to the Wall:

Look for photos from the event here after March 23rd!
