Jacob and I have selected The Lambert House.
From their website:
“Lambert House empowers lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth through the development of leadership, social, and life skills” which are all things we love about DnD.
They are a Seattle Based foundation, which is also where Wizards of the Coast is based and there is history of them teaming up to use Dungeons and Dragons as a tool to support growth in the LGBTQ+ community.
