Many LGBT+ people face prejudice, ignorance and sometimes even outright abuse from their family. This proejct sends love all over the world to thoese who have been cut off by there family, reminding them they are always loved and never alone especially durning these times that are supposed to be so full of love.
The simple concept behind this project is this: send cards to those whose families don't send them cards. Unfortunately, too many LGBTQ+ people face prejudice, ignorance and sometimes even outright abuse from their family, simply for being who they are. These people are often ostracised and outcast by their family, and not receiving a card on their birthday or during the holidays can be a very clear and upsetting statement of rejection, especially during these times that are supposed to be so full of love. Our aim is not to naively attempt to fill the hole that may leave in someone's life, but is instead to form our own family; because the most important kind of family is nothing to do with blood and all to do with love. After all, the LGBTQ+ community in itself is a family, so why not make it the kind of family that remembers each other's birthdays and exchanges Christmas cards?
