This merit badge was earned by purchasing all 5 RibbonZ patches. It started with Zarek Valentin’s 2018 bet with Haley Rasso that morphed into a fundraiser. This year the project took on another life in the form of a new patch release on each Timbers and Thorns home match during Pride Month. Profits from the patch went to New Avenues for Youth and the Q Center. Zarek chose 4 designs submitted by supporters, and designed one himself as well.
Requirements: Buy all 5 RibbonZ patches
