It has been a busy summer for Loving More Nonprofit and our volunteer staff with many exciting events on the horizon. After a a fire, great Colorado event and moving the Loving More Office we have been busy planning for the coming year.
Fundraising is crucial to keeping Loving More here and working for Polyamory awareness. Hard financial times are putting the squeeze on many nonprofits and Loving More is feeling it. Ongoing monthly donations of $20 to $30 go a long way in supporting Loving More as an organization. Support a good cause , please donate now.
Kody Brown Case – The Brown family, of Sister Wives fame, has filed a lawsuit in against several Utah State Officials claiming a violation of civil rights based on the Lawrence Decision and right to privacy. A full write up on the story can be found at Polyamory and the News blogspot. Loving More will be closely following this case and working with the press to help the public understand the polyamory perspective of the case.
Poly House Party:
Our thanks go out to the Poly House Party Team for a great launching of what will hopefully become an annual event. We appreciate tremendously the effort and the over $800 raised for Loving More by Boston Poly, Anita and Baltimore/DC poly and Colorado Poly Community. The funds were much needed and much appreciated. The many parties around the country and in Cananda varied from potlucks hosted by individuals to organized events in pubs. The feedback has been great and we look forward to an amazing event next summer.
We have new office in Loveland that is proving to be a much more suitable space for all that we do. This fall we will be hosting a series of lectures for our local community.
The Rocky Mountain Campout was a wonderful experience in community despite the unusually high and hot temperatures. We look forward to next summer when we will schedule a bit earlier in the season and hope for cooler weather.
