As you may have heard, a Dallas nonprofit serving black gay & bisexual men got burned out by an arsonist last month. Abounding Prosperity has found new offices, but they’re scrambling to replace everything. As in, their intital request for in-kind donations included toilet paper. (No I’m not crying, you’re crying.)
And they’re asking for games for their youth drop-in group. Waypointers, can you help me take this off AP leadership’s plate? The program manager told me community favorites are checkers, UNO, Monopoly, Phase 10, and card games like spades. Honestly, though, they’ll appreciate any tabletop & card games we send them. Someone gave them an Xbox 360 last week, so games for that system would be great.
Imagine: black and gay in Texas, too young for the bar scene, safe space physically attacked, and white supremacists in the news. Sitting down to a game with friends sounds pretty good, huh? We can help with that part. This is a thing we can do to give respite.
AP’s GoFundMe page is here. If you’d like to send them a game, please reply to this thread with the title to avoid duplication. Their mailing address is
2311 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
Dallas TX 75215
Thanks for reading. I hope you’ll consider a donation if you’re able.
