LOS ANGELES — In the wake of the Orlando massacre, CalExotics is donating $5,000 to the National Compassion Fund.
All of the funds received through the National Compassion Fund are distributed directly to victims. The National Compassion Fund is working closely with Equality Florida, the state’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) civil rights organization to combine efforts and ensure fair and transparent distribution of the donations received.
Susan Colvin, founder and CEO of CalExotics, says, “Our hearts are heavy with the burden of sadness that we feel for all those impacted by this malicious tragedy. Our aim is not only to support the greater community, but also to assist those that have been directly impacted by this act of domestic terror.”
With this donation, CalExotics says it is making a pledge to stand with the LGBTQ community and against any acts of terrorism, domestic or foreign.
For more than 20 years the organization has donated more than $1.5 million to various organizations involving the rights of the disenfranchised and underserved. CalExotics’ support spans gender, religious and cultural boundaries, and is done so in hopes of creating better world.
