The Trevor Project is thrilled that singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson is using her creative talents to support crisis intervention and suicide prevention programs and services for LGBTQ youth by designing and selling a t-shirt with proceeds coming back to the organization. Ingrid says, “I, like many others, have been deeply affected by the divisiveness in this country, which appears to be magnified more so now than ever. I wanted to do something to help bring people together, but I didn’t know what. A few friends suggested designing a tee and donating the profits to an organization that protects people who may feel threatened in this present climate. So that’s what I did. I feel like we can all agree that this is an important time to use your heart.”
So far, Ingrid has sold more than 1,000 shirts and she sent the shirt to a number of her friends, a few of whom we are sure you’ll recognize. Check out this one minute video to see who is using their heart and supporting Trevor. Ingrid sells this “Use Your Heart” shirt via her website – get yours today!
Once your “Use Your Heart” Tee arrives, tag photos of yourself wearing the shirt using #UseYourHeartTee and @UseYourHeartTee @TrevorProject on Instagram and Twitter to show your support.
