UPDATE - July 6, 2021
THANK YOU! The generosity of all of our supporters raised almost $35,000 for our local Gender and Sexuality Alliances at the Milton, MA middle and high schools. This will allow both groups to infuse their budgets while also endowing a scholarship that will last at least a decade. The support we received is a stand against bullying at all ages and in all forms!
THE T-SHIRT SALE WILL NOW RUN THROUGH LABOR DAY, HOWEVER ORDERS WILL BE HELD UNTIL ALL ARE RECEIVED WITH ONE BULK ORDER PLACED IN SEPTEMBER. ORDERING INSTRUCTIONS ARE BELOW. ORDERS PLACED THROUGH JULY 6, 2021 WILL BE DELIVERED 2-3 WEEKS FROM ORDERING.
Thank you again.
UPDATE - LeeMichael and I are so grateful for the support of our family and for the resistance and opposition to bullying, homophobia, and hatred. We have increased our goal a number of times. I am increasing this goal ONE LAST TIME! Through board work in the past, I know that we can endow a lasting scholarship at our new goal. Thank you to all whom have donated and to all whom will donate. We hear you!!! - BWF
ORIGINAL MESSAGE: Our family faced many years of harassment via mail from an individual that would subscribe for magazines and services with offensive and homophobic names directed to our address. This was a time of apprehension and sadness for our family. This year (2021), after a hiatus, the individual again signed us up or a subscription under the name Michelle Fruitzey. For the first time, we were able to get a handwriting sample. A Milton resident that wished to remain anonymous was actually able to identify the perpetrator through handwriting analysis and turned the analysis over to the police. The local police identified the perpetrator and arrested him for years of criminal harassment. Our family decided to turn a bad situation into a great situation by "owning" the name Michelle Fruitzey and having a fundraiser for the local GSA in our town schools by selling t-shirts. Let's educate against bullying in all forms, especially against GLBT youth and take Michelle viral. #iammichellefruitzey
