I’ve been lucky enough to be asked to work on the publicity campaign for BAR ONE a San Francisco based month-long event to benefit The Trevor Project. Here are a 1 page and 2 page pieces to be published in GLOSS magazine. I’m both proud and excited to be a part of this project.

BAR ONE is a collective endeavor of San Francisco bars and restaurants uniting to focus on anti-bullying and to benefit The Trevor Project, the leading national organization focused on an crisis and suicide prevention efforts for the LGBTQ community. Please visit: TheTrevorProject.org for more information. The Trevor Project’s Lifeline is 866-4-U-TREVOR (866-488-7386).
