It’s that time again! Every June, the Inked Gaming team comes together to celebrate Pride Month, and just like in years past, we’re doing our part to support those in the LGBTQA+ community. But, in order for us to accomplish this as a small business ourselves, we need support from our fellow gamers and loyal customers!
Frequent visitors who like exploring our site may have stumbled on our special Pride Month collection. Each product in this collection features brilliant Pride-themed designs with vibrant color combos that can liven up your favorite game(s). These products include mousepads, playmats, dice bags, sleeves, mat bags, and more. The whole collection is a joy to look through and really gets you into the spirit of what this month is all about!
Those are just a few favorites, but in truth, every design in the Pride collection holds a special place in our hearts. In fact, each art/product in this collection is important because of how they can help us reach the goal that we have planned for this month. Remember, on top of serving our fellow gamers, we also look to serve our communities and those individuals/groups who are in need. And that’s where our Pride collection comes into play!
All month long, we’re going to be keeping a close eye on the products in our Pride collection and set aside a portion from each sale, which will be donated to a crucial cause that’s based right here in our home state of Oregon. The organization is called Outside In, and they’ve been serving Portland’s LGBTQA+, and other communities, since 1968.
By providing safe spaces, health care, social services, housing, meals, and more, Outside In has become a valuable resource for underserved communities, groups, and individuals in need. That includes members of the LGBTQA+ community as well. This kind of support has helped to strengthen our communities over the years, which is why we feel so strongly about doing what we can to ensure that Outside In has all the support it needs to continue on its mission.
Again, we will be taking a percentage from every item that’s sold from our Pride collection and will donate the total amount to Outside In at the end of the month. That means we need your help to shop and share the products in our Pride collection whenever you can from this day forward (until June 30th). Doing so will then allow us to donate to a cause that means so much to so many. But we can’t do it without you!
With that, we ask you to have a look through our Pride collection today, if you haven’t already, and start adding some of your favorites to your cart. We also encourage you to learn more about Outside In and what makes the work they do every day, month, and year so important.
