Rainbow Brigade Fundraising Update
One our our favourite stories from 2020 was seeing Rainbow Brigade turn their disappointment at seeing their second tournament cancelled, into energy to raise money for a social justice cause that is close to their heart.
Rainbow Brigade kit was sold in aid of the Audre Lorde Project in New York and Lookfly was delighted to be able to help out!
In total, your purchases of Rainbow Brigade gear raised an amazing £905.27 (~$1,018, ~€1,198)!
Please read on for a statement from the team's organisers.
Rainbow Brigade would like to thank our extended circle of friends and family for their continued support, especially considering how much of 2020 was unexpected and difficult. Despite not having the opportunity to play together, it was important to us to try and pursue our mission as best we could.
We are incredibly grateful to VC Lookfly for partnering with us and allowing us to donate a portion of the proceeds to the Audre Lorde Project, whose work supports the LGBTQ+ community. With 79 orders from 14 countries, we are really feeling the love. Once again, we’re so appreciative of our community and their support of LGBTQ+ folx.
La Brigada Arcoiris (Rainbow Brigade) querría agradecerles a nuestro círculo de amiges y familiares extendides por su apoyo continuo, especialmente considerando que 2020 fue tan inesperado y difícil. A pesar de no tener la oportunidad de jugar juntes, era importante para nosotres intentar perseguir nuestra meta lo mejor que pudiéramos.
Le estamos agradecidos increíblemente a VC Lookfly por su asociación con nosotres y por el permiso de donar una parte de las ganancias al Proyecto Audre Lorde, cuyo trabajo apoya a la comunidad LGBTQ +. Con 79 pedidos de 14 países, sentimos el amor realmente. Una vez más, estamos muy agradecidos con nuestra comunidad y su apoyo a la gente LGBTQ +.
