BABL'S CHARITABLE 
FUND
July's Charity of Choice

100% of the donations this month will go to help fund The Trevor Project. You can donate 50 cents or 50 dollars. If all you have is 50 cents and everyone donated just 50 cents it would make the world of difference. 
Donations are accepted through Paypal and through the website. From there the money is deposited to the chosen Organizations. Make a .50 cent contribution to bablscharitablefund.

For the month of June we successfully raised $3 for The Trevor Project. 
Though that is not much, we appreciate every quarter. Thank you for helping us make a difference. 

July is Xochitl's birthday month. Her brother Peter, who was named after their Uncle Peter, was also born in July. Their Uncle Peter was a Gay man. He contracted AIDS and passed away in 1989. In honor of their beloved Uncle, Xochitl has decided to keep the Trevors Project as July's Charity of choice.
