Charities

Casa Ruby

We at Lambda are transgender and queer, so we care deeply about the transgender and queer communities. We donate a portion of all proceeds to Casa Ruby, a multicultural, bilingual, LGBTQ safe space providing food, shelter, and numerous other health-related services in Washington, DC. 

Casa Ruby's Mission and Vision:

"Our mission is to create success life stories among transgender, genderqueer, gender non-conforming, gay, lesbian and bisexual individuals.

Our vision is to create a world where transgender, genderqueer, and gender non-conforming people pursue their dreams and achieve success in their lives without fear of discrimination, harassment, or violence due to their sexual orientation and or gender identity/gender expression."

 

Planned Parenthood

We also give to Planned Parenthood, "one of the nation’s leading providers of high-quality, affordable health care, and the nation’s largest provider of sex education. With or without insurance, you can always come to [them] for health care."

Planned Parenthood's Mission:

The mission of Planned Parenthood is:

  • to provide comprehensive reproductive and complementary health care services in settings which preserve and protect the essential privacy and rights of each individual;

  • to advocate public policies which guarantee these rights and ensure access to such services;

  • to provide educational programs which enhance understanding of individual and societal implications of human sexuality;

  • to promote research and the advancement of technology in reproductive health care and encourage understanding of their inherent bioethical, behavioral, and social implications.
