Hello there! Welcome to Pilot's CrowdRise page supporting The Trevor Project - one of the six non-profit organizations we've chosen to focus on this giving season!
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth are 4x more likely to commit suicde than their peers and The Trevor Project is the leading and only accredited national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to this vulnerable population.
The Trevor Project offers a suite of crisis intervention and suicide prevention programs, including TrevorLifeline, TrevorText, and TrevorChat as well as a peer-to-peer social network support for LGBTQ young people under the age of 25, TrevorSpace. As their New York ISP, we recognize we play a crutial role in the rollout of their service delivery and are thrilled to even more so directly support their work.
Trevor also offers an education program with resources for youth-serving adults and organizations, a legislative advocacy department fighting for pro-LGBTQ legislation and against anti-LGBTQ rhetoric/policy positions, and conducts research to discover the most effective means to help young LGBTQ people in crisis and end suicide. If you or someone you know is feeling hopeless or suicidal, our Trevor Lifeline crisis counselors are available 24/7/365 at 866.488.7386. Learn more about their work here.
That brings us to the brass tacks - we've set a goal of raising $4,000 for each of the NPOs on our list, and we need your help to meet (and hopefully surpass) this number!
It's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season. There are bills to pay, parties to attend, gifts to buy and Black Friday deals to nab! But we're hoping this #GivingTuesday campaign resonates with our friends and family as an opportunity to connect with the true spirit of the holidays - one that's centered around generosity, humility, compassion, and kindness.
Thanks for stopping by our page and supporting the great work The Trevor Project is doing!
