About the Campaign

Please help me, as a member of The Renegade Bears of San Antonio, support these two great San Antonio charities, and my friend Sister Dottie Bair by sponsoring me to sleep in the park for one night.

All proceeds benefit Thrive Youth Center and Stand Up For Kids, San Antonio

These charities focus on homeless minor children without a parent/guardian.  Approximately 40%-50% of all homeless youths are GLBT.  This group in particular are at heighten risk of assault, sexual exploitation, disability, illness and suicide. Thrive Youth Center provides an affirming GLBT positive space to develop self-sufficiency life skills and other resources for homeless youth.  Thrive is also the only homeless shelter in San Antonio specifically targeted toward supporting GLBT.  Stand Up For Kids works to reduce homelessness by providing, outreach, mentoring and rent support to homeless youth up to age 25.

As you can see from my ‘suggested donations’, I’m a bit of a joiner.  If I can combine my social enjoyment with community awareness, all the better!

BTW, we’ll be playing Pokemon GO all night too.  Are we friends?  2327 2812 3426
