Feel Good Foundation helped LGBTQ and social justice causes in 2021
Adam recapped the good work the foundation did in 2021
“First, we have been working with the LGBTQ Center of Los Angeles, which was really exciting. We made a donation to them, helped them with their annual fundraiser.”
Additionally, the foundation “worked with the freedom fund.” Adam explained, “During the Black Lives Matter movement, when it reached that pinnacle last year, there were a lot of queer people of color being arrested for merely protesting. The freedom fund helped post bail for them.”
Also, the foundation supported the Rady Center in Adam’s hometown, San Diego. It is “an organization that helps families and young people for gender affirming care,” said Adam.
And lastly, the foundation has been working with Music Cares. The organizations “helps musicians of all types in the industry,: said Adam. “And we’ve been partnering with them under a focus of the queer musicians.” Adam added, “This is an angle of music industry that’s ever-growing. There’s a lot more queer musicians coming up, and putting a focus on that for that community seems really exciting.”
“There’s much more to come, ” Adam promises. “We have more planned this year, and I’m very excited about my foundation. And so if you’d like to make a donation for my 40th birthday, I would appreciate it. Thank you so much.”
