JJ was cooking. I was on the laptop.
“What are you doing, Fen?”
“Making a donation.”
“Yeah? To whom?”
Whom, not who. He’s a teacher. Of course, he’d get that right. Smiling, I entered my credit card number. “The Trevor Project.”
“Excellent choice. Whatever you’re giving, double it. I want to donate, too.”
I did as he asked. Neither of us have lots of superfluous money, but The Trevor Project is important. They help LGBTQ youth make it through some tough times.
“When I was grocery shopping today, I saw a Salvation Army bell ringer. It was all I could not to yell at her.”
“I’m glad you didn’t, honey. The volunteers may not be aware of their negative stance regarding LGBTQ.”
I hit the submit button. “Done. We just made a donation to a very worthy cause.”
Setting the laptop aside, I stood and went into the kitchen, hugging JJ from behind. “Thanks, babe. Every dollar counts.”
He leaned back into me. “I wish we could give more.”
“I always wish that. I hope the people with lots of money will share this holiday season, put it where it counts, where it matters. What could be more important?”
He turned his head and we kissed.
Please consider making a donation to The Trevor Project this holiday season. They do good, necessary work to keep our LGBTQ youth safe. Every dollar counts!
If you’re making a donation of under $500 (that would be me and JJ), go here: DONATE
