For the entire month of December, I will be running to raise money for Worthy Mentoring. Worthy is an app primarily for members of the LGBTQ+ community who may be struggling. The app connects mentors with mentees to help LGBTQ+ folks who may be having a hard time coming out to their parents or loved ones, who may feel they are targeted or vulnerable in a place they should be able to call home, or are facing other difficult challenges or experiences with their identity.
While a global pandemic has made forming and sustaining new and meaningful connections difficult for everyone, the impact is especially great among members of the LGBTQ+ community, who now may find it more difficult than before to find others with whom they can identify. Worthy is a great solution for bringing members of the community together in a safe environment.
All money raised will be donated directly to Worthy Mentoring in order to support app development, server costs, and background checks for mentors. To get things started, I will be donating $1 for every mile that I run from December 1st through December 31st. I'm asking for your help to motivate me to run as many miles possible! Would you please consider pledging to donate anywhere between $0.01 and $1.00 per mile that I run during the month of December?
