The Trevor Project went purple on October 16th in support of Spirit Day, a national day of awareness that sends a message of solidarity to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth who experience bullying. We know that the relationship between suicide and bullying is complicated, but we want LGBTQ young people to know that no matter who they are or what they’re going through, The Trevor Project is here to help.
Did you miss Spirit Day this year? Not to worry! Here are two additional ways you can support LGBTQ youth during National Bullying Prevention Month this October.
1. Share a picture through Donate a Photo – an app created by Johnson & Johnson that allows users to upload one photo per day in support of a cause, like The Trevor Project. For every photo you upload, Johnson & Johnson donates $1 to Trevor’s life-saving work!* You can upload one phone every day until November 30th, when the fundraising campaign ends. Download the app and get started, here: www.donateaphoto.com.
2. Give at least $16 to The Trevor Project’s Sweet 16 campaign at www.Trvr.org/16 and help us celebrate 16 years of life-saving years of service. Every dollar you give goes toward making sure that we can be there for LGBTQ youth when they need us most.
On behalf of the youth we serve, thank you so much for your support!
* Johnson & Johnson has curated a list of trusted causes, and you can donate a photo to one cause, once a day. Each cause will appear in the app until it reaches its goal of $16,000 or the donation period ends. If the goal isn’t reached, the cause will still get a minimum donation of $8,000.
