It’s been a busy couple of weeks for the Obama family, with both Barack and Michelle attending charity events.

Last Thursday, June 25, Michelle attended the United We Serve volunteer event at the Fort McNair fitness center in Washington DC. The event saw 15,000 backpacks with books, healthy snacks and toys donated to the children of those in the armed forces.

“Economic recovery is as much about what you’re doing in your communities as what we’re doing here in Washington – and it’s going to take all of us, working together,” she said. “So, wherever your interests lie – whether it’s working with young people or caring for the sick and elderly in our hospitals, or helping to make the homes in your neighborhood more energy efficient – or any other issue, the most important thing is for you to get involved.”

Michelle then joined her husband for an event in recognition of LGBT Pride Month in the East Room of the White House on Monday, June 29.

“I want you to know: You have our support,” said Barack. “I will not only be your friend, I will continue to be an ally and a champion and a president who fights with you and for you.”
