WE DID IT! BABY TRUMP IS COMING TO ORLANDO! With 167 small-dollar donors in under 24 hours, we raised enough funds to bring Baby Trump to Orlando!!
We also reached our goal to secure critical interpretation services for our program! THANK YOU EVERYONE!
Any additional funds raised will go towards permitting costs, additional costs to make our event as inclusive as possible for our seniors and people with disabilities, and water for our volunteers.
Along with Baby Trump, we can't wait to see you at Tuesday's #WinWithLove Rally in Orlando! More details below!
----------------------- ----------------------- ----------------------- ----------------------- Orlando can't properly protest President Trump without a special visit from Baby Trump!
We need your help to bring this VIP (very important protestor) to Orlando's Win With Love Rally this Tuesday, June 18th from 5PM - 7:30PM. We plan to win with love, and we LOVE Baby Trump!
Bringing Baby Trump to Orlando costs $2,500; this includes transport, set up, anchors, staffing, etc. We are also asking for an additional $1,000 in donations to pay for interpretation services. Specifically $600 for Real-Time Captioning (you can learn more about this technology here) for those in our community who are deaf or hard of hearing, and $400 for interpretation services for our non-english monolingual speakers on stage. Please note, Go Fund Me charges a transaction fee of 2.9% of all funds raised, plus $0.30 per donation.
------------------------ JOIN FLORIDIANS FROM ACROSS THE STATE as we honor our steadfast resistance and send a clear message to Donald Trump: Hate, division, corruption, and greed have no place in our city, state, or country. Together against Trump, we will #WinWithLove.
On June 18th, Donald Trump plans to launch his re-election campaign at the Amway Center in the heart of Orlando, the City Beautiful. This month, we mourn the 3-year remembrance of the Pulse Nightclub tragedy. We also mark the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, a seminal event in LGBTQ history, and Juneteenth, the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. ALL of our communities have suffered immensely due to the President's hateful policies, corruption, and negligence. Our response will be quintessential Orlando: rooted love, unity, resilience, some fun, and zero place for hate. Together against Trump we will #WinWithLove.
