GoodWill’s LGBT Programming Needs Your Support

GoodWill Industries of North Central Wisconsin is helping sponsor an event for LGBTQ youth which is a celebration of 15 years of the GLBT Partnership. The Partnership is a youth group that meets and provides support to teens who identify as LGBT and their allies. GoodWill helps by sponsoring space for those meetings.

And now a local “family voice” is encouraging their supporters to call GoodWill and complain about this programming. I won’t give this person the traffic by actually linking to him, but I’ve copied some of the text below so you can see exactly what you’re dealing with. On the same page, they provide the numbers and contact info for the people at both GoodWill and Kimberly Clark. (If you absolutely must see the page for yourself, email me & I’ll send it to you that way.)

So here’s what we need to do.

  1. call or email:
    • Thomas J. Falk, Chairman/CEO of Kimberly-Clark, 920-721-2000, or, or use their on-line form HERE
    • GOODWILL INDUSTRIES,,1-800-482-0030
  2. donate to the LGBT partnership
  3. spread the word by posting this info on your blog, Facebook, etc.

What I want to see is support for these teenagers. Too many local LGBTQ teens have taken their own lives, & the GLBT Partnership is a real light against this kind of homophobia. Do help if you can, in whatever way you can.

Below is the text of the person who is getting people to call these groups & discourage this event AND the LGBT teens. We need to outnumber them.Harmony House (a program of GOODWILL INDUSTRIES of North Central Wisconsin) is hosting the event. Goodwill has the event advertised at the bottom of their home page HERE and even posts/exposes the names of the attendees (minor children) as they register.

While Kimberly-Clark’s website touts a “healthy lifestyles” page and encourages employees and community members to make healthy domestic lifestyle choices, this company is endorsing the most dangerous physical lifestyle known to man, homosexuality, and to youth nonetheless. Apparently, Kimberly-Clark has not been paying attention to the CDC website’s statistics regarding the dangerous and deadly effects of gay/lesbian sex.  Regarding men alone the CDC states, “Men who have sex with men (MSM) accounted for 61% of the estimated new HIV infections in 2009.” Promoting and sponsoring a homosexual event for children is not only shameful, it is an outright slap in the face to the citizens of Wisconsin, who overwhelmingly support a state law upholding marriage as between one man and one woman.

It is no secret that Kimberly-Clark is an advocate for homosexuality, having received a score of 90 out of 130 from the nationally known Human Rights Campaign ( LGBT equal rights organization) for embracing homosexual equality/domestic partner benefits  within their company.
You get the picture.
