Nov. 8, 2012 - PRLog -- (SALEM, MASS.) Local LGBT initiative, Go Out Loud, today announced celebration plans for the organization’s one year anniversary by kicking off a new charitable effort, ‘Give Out Loud,’ which rewards non-perishable donations at designated posts throughout the Salem community with a special edition GOLD (Go Out Loud Discount) Holiday Pride Pass, giving community members incentives to give and shop locally through discounts, savings or special offers.

The Holiday Out Night event will be the first opportunity to donate goods, discover the complete Give Out Loud business incentives, and celebrate one year strong of Go Out Loud events with a ‘loud holiday sweater’ contest and music by DJ Flex, being held at Vic’s Boathouse / Victoria Station, Salem, MA on November 29, 2012 from 8PM to 12:30AM.

“As the Go Out Loud leadership team solidified over the past year, we quickly identified charitable efforts as part of our core mission,” said Thomas Mac Donald, Chief Financial Officer of Go Out Loud. “As a long time Salem resident and organizer, I’m proud of the events we have created for the LGBT community in our region, especially our Give Out Loud charity drive. I’m left even more hopeful for our future in designing more Go Out Loud volunteer engagements, social gatherings and opportunities for our community to connect.”

Local businesses and restaurants have been stepping up their efforts to help get the word out for the Give Out Loud campaign, and Go Out Loud Chief Executive Officer Kevin Letourneau is determined to add value to prospective donations. “We want to reward people for being active in their communities and by making an impact. Join the movement, donate a few items and shop local!” Letourneau pointed out, “I’m ecstatic with how Go Out Loud has grown in its first year, with 20 successful events, a fully operational corporate leadership team and a dynamic network both digital and real-world, we’re fostering positive connections and experiences all over the North Shore.”

Small businesses interested in participating should contact Kevin Letourneau (kevinl@gooutloud.com) or Chris Sicuranza (chriss@gooutloud.com). For more information on Give Out Loud and to see complete post locations, business affiliations and program discounts, please visit GoOutLoud.com/give

Created in late 2011, the Go Out Loud brand was established as an opportunity for the New England LGBT community, starting with the Greater Boston area, to engage in a variety of interest-based social activities to facilitate networking, empowering the community and supporting the local economy. Early events, under the original name of ‘Salem Out Loud,’ created a new kind of community that proved to be wildly successful with an average of 135 in attendance (depending on capacity) supporting local businesses, working with politicians (US Congressmen Barney Frank and John Tierney, Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll, various other city councilors) and individuals to embrace Pride to terrific success for both community members and business seeing an increase in sales.
