We like this Athlete Ally "Picture and a Promise"

Hudson Taylor's Athlete Ally program has made a call for support for contributions to his Facebook album (which you can view HERE):

The purpose of this album is to encourage every ally to send us a picture and a promise as to how he or she plans to make a difference in his or her community. Our hope is that this album will grow with the number of self-identified allies.

Please send your photos to speakingout@athleteally.com.
Here's the latest contribution:

I promise to never lose sight of the bigger picture; that to ensure a promising athletic community we must all stand together against hate and bullying. I promise to be the most supportive teammate and person I can be to those who may feel estranged. Most of all, I promise to show that winning is not the most important thing, but that being an ally triumphs against all and the greatest accomplishment we can achieve.
