My dearest family and friends,
November 29 is #GivingTuesday, a day devoted to coordinating mass donations for organizations and worthy causes that need our support. #GivingTuesday shifts the focus back onto what this time of year is all about - compassion, generosity, and community.
My company has elected non-profits that we service in order to support our clients who are working to make the world a better place. I’m specifically working with The Trevor Project, and this group hits home for me.
LGBTQ youth are 4x more likely to commit suicide 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 crucial role in the rollout of their service delivery and are thrilled to even more so directly support their work.
Please consider making a donation to this group in honor of me, as I can’t tell you how much it would mean to me.
This organization does so much to support the youth in our community, and I hope to give back as much as possible.
Thank you so much for your support and love!
