This Christmas I choose to give to charities that will support those who have been marginalized, and who will likely be increasingly marginalized because of the incoming President. I am a senior minister in a congregation that supports the rights of people of all gender preferences and sexual orientations. Giving to The Trevor Project and working with lgbtqi youth in my own community are two ways I can maintain hope at this time in our society. This Christmas donation is also the honor the love shared between my niece and her partner.
The Trevor Help line along with their social web site Trevor Space is a great resource for not only me, but also many GLBTQ youth. The fist time i called the Help line i was 13 and extremely confused about my whole life. The lady on the line helped me to realize that things do have a bright side and very well may have saved my life in the long run if not just at that point in time. I then called it again about a year later, now being out to most family and friends, when me and my first girl friend broke up. Again the person on the line helped me to see the bright side of thing and that life is worth living. At the end of that call was when the person on the line told me about Trevor Space and as i said above it is truly a great resource. I am now doing much better in my life with the help of some medications and have improved so much over even the last few months. I thank the Trevor project for being then at a point in my life when it seemed like there was no one else! Brianna A.
I discovered The Trevor Project through the GLSEN. I think that it is an amazing orangization and I have been spreading it and TrevorSpace to all of my other LGBTQ friends, as well as some of my straight friends that are also stuggling with suicide. I believe that The Trevor Project deserves the Pride Choice Award for all of it's hard work and all of the lives that it has helped save the Trevor Hotline.
The Trevor Project is the best at providing an invaluable service to LGBT teens, letting them know that they are by no means alone. The volunteers are great, which makes the organization great. I hope that more teens will find the Trevor Project and the solace it had provided so many others.
Thank you Trevor Project for all the support you have provided to the community! You have an amazing hardworking staff and I hope you will continue to provide the well needed support you have.
Many LGBT children lead isolated lives because of their inability to find resources and others like them. The Trevor Project really serves this community by providing the support and networking that these children lack. By addressing a particularly vulnerable group - kids in their mid and late teens - they have undoubtably given a helping hand to those who would have otherwise turned to other outlets such as drugs or self abuse.
It's a great resource. I had the pleasure of meeting a few members and volunteers and they provide a great service.
I've never had the problem, but I could imagine how The Trevor Project can help the LGBT youth in need, and save lives! It's a much needed service to our community, and to help youth who lost their direction in life.
I love these guys. All the people are so attractive and hard. working! Hands down the best. The Trevor Project ftw!!!
I grew up not being able to identify with anyone. It wasn't until I got older that I experienced things that made me aware of who I truly was. To spend the better part of your youth in confusion is like being locked in the darkness. The Trevor Project reaches out to those like myself and it would've been helpful if i knew about non-profit organizations like this when I was younger. Keep up the good work and continue lending a kind ear to those who need it.
What a great organization and much needed service. I truly wish this type of service was available when I was younger- it would have saved me a lot of pain and needless trouble. It would have allowed me to love, accept and know myself earlier in life instead of trying to disappear and hurt myself. My wish is that this organization continues to grow and reach as many young people as possible.
I haven't personally called the Trevor Project, but my friend did. Thanks to this organization, I still have my best friend. I solely believe the fact it saves thousands of lives is enough to be considered the organization that's doing the most to help the LBGTQ community.
I'm familiar with The Trevor Project through friends. By all accounts, it's an outstanding organization that provides a much needed service. Everyone involved should be applauded for the work they do in making a difference in so many lives.
The Trevor Project. How amazing. This site helped me to cope with questioning if I was gay, and talk to some local gays who know what it is like to come out in our area!
The Trevor Project I think its a great service that allows young people all over the world not to be afraid of who and what they are and can provide help and support to those who need it ^^ There should be more organizations like this aimed at gay people ^^ Trevorspace is also great for networking and informing us, the gay community, about events and news that affects our lives FulL Marks from me ^^
I learned of the Trevor Project from a friend who is involved first hand. He was relating to me his past feelings of isolation and not having anyone around he could really connect with or talk to. It was so great to hear him say that he remembered his feelings and that he didn't want others to suffer or feel that same isolation. So, he got involved in the Trevor Project. What he and others are giving is the greatest personal gift, reaching out, knowing how it feels and wanting to prevent others from that pain. The hope continues, that folks who take advantage of this great group will go on to become members and carry on the tradition of inclusion, security, and lack of isolation. The Trevor Project can only get better with each new member joining together, to make the world a better place for everyone.
The Trevor Project is definitely life-saving and life-changing for millons of LGBTQ kids who just need to know that someone cares, understands, and has been where they are.
The selfless passion, enthusiasm, and dedication of the volunteers and members of The Trevor Project in facilitating an outlet for LGBTQ youth is unparalleled. This is an organization that saves young lives, and is beyond vital to the community.
The Trevor Project is an invaluable organization that offers an essential service for those in need of guidance. This service works and due to that fact, should get numerous awards for all it does in the lives of others.
All of our children should know they are valued. Thank you Trevor Project for giving LGBTQ youth 24/7 access to highly trained counselors who will listen and understand in their darkest hours. I can’t think of a more important cause to support; saving the lives of our children.
