Friends, Family, Friends of Friends, and Friends of Family,
Yep, I'm turning 28 and in lieu of gifts, I would love your help in raising $750.00 (or MORE!!) by April 13th for the Trevor Project.
A gift of ANY AMOUNT would be amazing (Your gift is tax deductible)! Some influential people you may be familiar with agree:
Paul the Apostle:2 Corinthians 9:6, "But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully."....Lets sow our seeds!
The Buddha: "As a single drop of water fills a bucket so do small deeds of evil; as a single drop of water fills a bucket so do small deeds of good."....Lets fill the bucket!
Jesus Christ: Matthew 7:12, "So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets."....Lets help others!
Dr. Seuss: "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."....Lets care an awful lot!
Muhammad: “A man’s true wealth is the good he does in this world.”....Lets get wealthy!
Winston Churchill: "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." ....Lets give!
Each year over 30,000 teens and young adults call the Trevor Lifeline. The Trevor Lifeline is the ONLY free and confidential crisis intervention and suicide prevention lifeline for LGBTQ youth available 24/7 anywhere in the U.S. Each year trained volunteers take tens of thousands of calls from young people across the country at each of their 3 call centers named for Trevor, co-founder Randy Stone, and LGBT civil rights leader Harvey Milk. The Trevor Lifeline is accredited as an exemplary crisis intervention program by the American Association for Suicidology.
