BENEFITING: Project 10
~~~*~~*~~* français ci-dessous *~~*~~*~~
For 25 years Project 10 has been creating safer spaces where queer and trans youth can find support, find one another, and define themselves--on their own terms.
Last year, P10 provided 1500 instances of support at drop-ins, by phone, and one-on-one counselling and accompaniments.
We also subsidized over $3000 worth of gender-affirming accessories for youth who could not otherwise access them.
This year, the support requests have increased and we have had difficulty responding to all of them.
Help P10 expand our capacity and develop more programming to foster better peer-support for and between youth.
**donations are tax deductible**
Here are some ideas to get you started:
- #p10Because wellbeing for all LGBTQ+ youth must include those who are also racialized, disabled, migrant, or poor
- #p10Because LGBTQ+ youth should feel unique, but not alone
Depuis 25 ans, Projet 10 créé des espaces plus sécuritaires où les jeunes LGBTQ+ peuvent trouver du soutien, trouver leurs pairs et se définir à leur image.
Nous visons atteindre 10,000$ lors de #MardiJeDonne pour lancer notre campagne d'autofinancement de fin d'année pour 15,000 $
**les dons sont éligibles pour une réduction d'impots, on vous envoie le reçu aussitôt que le don est fait en ligne**
#p10Pcq les jeunes trans et non-binaires sont encore exclus du système médical!
#p10Pcq trouver sa communauté permet de trouver aussi l'espoir
Et vous? Quelle est votre raison #p10Pcq?
