Free Mom Hugs is a National non-profit that is dedicated to supporting the LGBTQIA community by offering support, educating, bringing awareness and of course offering lots of hugs and high fives at Pride events and beyond.
The group has grown so quickly that the inquiries from people wanting to help grew beyond what the the national level could effectively organize at this time. Wanting to make every effort to be present at as many events as possible, and to reach as many people as possible, State Chapters were born.
These chapters each have individual Facebook pages and can be accessed by searching by state from the Free Mom Hugs website. They have been set up very quickly, just this year, by volunteers and are being run by volunteers, and as expected, are also growing at an incredible pace!
As each state chapter operates individually and NOT under the national non-profit at this time, any costs associated are paid out of pocket by volunteers as they can, and when they can.
This fundraiser was set up in effort to offset those costs. Any funds given will be spent as outlined below, in the order needed to meet the needs of each event. (If any giver would like their funds to go to a specific expense, this will be honored.)
As mentioned above, Free Mom Hugs South Carolina Chapter is NOT at this time, operating under the National non-profit, and therefore, any funds given are gifts and are not tax deductible.
