GLAAD is an excellent organization, but they are basing their battle in the United States alone. Inequality for gays and lesbians can be felt around the world. Nap-Sack LLC I feel can help give GLAAD the recognition they need. By promoting their core beliefs and fight for global change, they can receive huge funding from across the globe while revamping their internal situation. Their message will be heard and I would really suggest that somebody from this organization get in contact with Susan Hanlon. I met this woman and after listening to her, I feel that this organization is on the right track.
Good luck and I hope you guys can become stronger in the future. Contact Nap-Sack LLC.

I would encourage this non profit to become more tolerant. They should embrace our Constitution and the rights it protects, including free speech. This world needs more acceptance of each individual's beliefs, rather than condemnation of disparate views. The organization may be better served to focus on limiting expenses and raising revenues to support their effort rather than losing substantial sums through exorbitant salaries. Maybe their recent headline grabbing efforts are a cry for help.
