PLUG IN INITIATIVE: BRAVE SPACE ALLIANCE AND THE LOVELAND FOUNDATION
The Halogen Company is donating all proceeds from Yule: A Virtual Variety Hour to two organizations this year: Brave Space Alliance & The Loveland Foundation. These two organizations are helping marginalized groups, empowering them and helping them through the challenges 2020 has amplified. Please go to their websites: bravespacealliance.org&thelovelandfoundation.org tofindoutmoreanddonatewhatyou can. The Halogen Company is a supporter of Black Lives Matter and as a company we have always and will continue to keep our doors open in support of all peoples in the creation of our art.
Brave Space Alliance is the first Black-led, trans-led LGBTQ Center located on the South Side of Chicago, dedicated to creating and providing affirming, culturally competent, for-us by-us resources, programming, and services for LGBTQ individuals on the South and West sides of the city. We strive to empower, embolden, and educate each other through mutual aid, knowledge-sharing, and the creation of community-sourced resources as we build toward the liberation of all oppressed peoples.
The Loveland Foundation was established in 2018 by Rachel Cargle in response to her widely successful birthday wish fundraiser, Therapy for Black Women and Girls. Her enthusiastic social media community raised over $250,000, which made it possible for Black women and girls nationally to receive therapy support. Black women and girls deserve access to healing, and that healing will impact generations. The Loveland Foundation is the official continuation of this effort to bring opportunity and healing to communities of color, and especially to Black women and girls. Through fellowships, residency programs, listening tours, and more, ultimately we hope to contribute to both the empowerment and the liberation of the communities we serve.

This year due to Covid, we are planning an interactive virtual variety hour experience for immersive fans from around the globe to enjoy. We are selling ad space for the 30 minutes before this show starts, when people are logging in and can enjoy some creative pre show holiday spirit. During this time we will also be highlighting our charities.
From prices that range between $25-$100 pick an advertisement that suits you! We encourage companies from everywhere to consider contributing. Even if you are not a company, what a cool gift to give grandma a shout out on an interactive platform to be seen by people across the globe. Sponsor a drink, a craft, trivia or send in your very own ad for consideration.
If interested, please email Julia at jules@thehalogencompany.com to discuss sponsorship or to receive an Ad Brochure that showcases our varying ads.
