Hello everyone and happy Project for Awesome!
This year is a little bit different now that we’re in February instead of December, but regardless, I am so so happy to be back making my sixth P4A video, about The Trevor Project!
The Trevor Project is a non-profit organization founded in 1998 that provides free, confidential counseling for LGBTQ+ youth. This organization is the nation’s largest program of its kind that helps thousands of people each year.
The Trevor Project got its start after the success of a short film titled “Trevor.” This film follows the story of a young kid who struggles with coming to terms with his sexuality. It is free to watch on YouTube and will be linked in the description and in a card and I would highly recommend you watch it yourself. It does include depictions of self-harm, though, so if that will trigger you or upset you, I would not recommend watching it.
The creators of this film wanted to include some sort of lifeline for people that may have felt the same way as Trevor, but after realizing that no such lifeline existed, they decided to make their own. According to statistics from the CDC, LGBTQ+ youth are more than four times more likely to attempt suicide than their peers, and for this reason, the Trevor Project’s work is so so important.
The Trevor Project can really benefit from your donations because with that money, they can provide more services and train more volunteers to help more people. Also, they will work to raise awareness for LGBTQ+ issues and policies to help promote equality and inclusion.
If you're watching this video during the weekend of February 12-14, 2021, and you want to support this wonderful organization, you can click a link in the description or in a card and it will take you to a page on projectforawesome.com where you can vote for this charity.
If this charity gets enough votes, it can receive a portion of the money raised during the second half of the Project for Awesome!
Additionally, if you want to support the Trevor Project directly, you can visit their website, thetrevorproject.org, which will also be linked in the description.
Thank you all so much for watching this video! Please head over to projectforawesome.com and watch some more videos on more charities or join the 48-hour livestream!
Additionally, if you or anyone you know is struggling, know that you are not alone and there are so many people who are there for you. The Trevor Project’s Lifeline is (866) 488-7386, and the National Suicide Prevention Hotline is +1 (800) 273-8255. All of this and more will be in the description.
I love you all, happy Project for Awesome, and as always, DFTBA!
