Teen Line’s hotline volume has risen dramatically and we are hearing from teens who are worried. We need to expand our services and are looking to double up our outreach services. Which is why we are participating in Giving Tuesday.
Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
On Tuesday, November 29, organizations, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
We’re out to raise as much money as possible for Teen Line, but we need your help!
We’re looking for our friends to go one step further than donating and to actually fundraise for our campaign. Imagine the impact we can have if each of our supporters got their friends and family to donate to our cause?
It’s very easy to do. All you have to do is go to: crowdrise.com/TeenLineOnline. Scroll down to Fundraisers, click on #GivingTuesday Fundrasier, and then click on Fundraise for This Campaign or Join The Team. In seconds, you’ll have your own fundraiser that you can share with everyone you know.
If for some reason you can’t fundraise for our campaign, please click here and give what you can. Every donation makes a difference.
You can also get the word out about Teen Line. Print out this sign, put in the reason why you care and take a picture to share on your social media. Please hashtag: #teenline #givingtuesday #UNselfie
On behalf of our Teen Line Volunteers, Board of Directors and Staff – THANK YOU!
