A Message From Greg Miraglia

This year I celebrate my 55th birthday! This year also marks 20 years since Matthew Shepard was murdered simply for being his authentic self.

You all know how Matthew's story changed my life. It continues to be a huge honor for me to serve on the board of the Matthew Shepard Foundation. 15 years ago I celebrated my 40th birthday and dedicated it to raising money for the Matthew Shepard Foundation. The sad truth is that violent hate crimes targeting LGBT people are again on the rise. Now more than ever, the Foundation needs your support to erase hate. Matt's story and his legacy continues to changes lives today and so I ask you to celebrate with me by giving to the Matthew Shepard Foundation again this year as part of my 55th birthday celebration.

My goal is to raise $100 for each year - $5500 - by June 3. We can do this if 100 friends donate $1 for each year - $55!

As an added incentive, I've put together a special gift basket that includes 3 Matthew Shepard Foundation teddy bears, a signed copy of Judy Shepard's book, "The Meaning Of Matthew," a signed copy of Joe Solmonese's book, "The Gift of Anger", an album from Matt Alber, "Wind, Sand, Stars, CD's from the amazing Randi Driscoll, and other goodies from the Foundation. I'll draw a name from among the donors on my birthday this June 3.
