3 EASY ways of
donating to the AKT


My name is Stuart and I first became aware of AKT about 5 years ago and have followed their work since then supporting their efforts where I can by privately donating to appeals and the purple circle scheme in the past.

I chose to support AKT mainly because when I came out as a teen (many years ago) I had a very supportive family on one side and a not so on the other and I think it was the realization about how fortunate I was to have a mother and stepfather who supported me but also being able to understand in a small part the feeling of rejection that some teenagers have to face.  

I was lucky enough to have never faced homelessness or having nowhere to go and I can't imagine how hard that must be to deal with when your also trying to understand yourself and your sexuality and start your adult life which is why I am so excited about the upcoming challenge and being able to help in my own small way continue the vital work of AKT.  

I am daunted about the task ahead especially since I haven't been a bike for years but can't think of a better reason to spur myself on to complete the challenge .
