After learning of one of my best friend’s personal struggles with her sexuality and suicidal thoughts in her teen years, I decided I needed to do more.
My sweet friend, who was constantly surrounded by people who loved her and who accepted her with open arms, still felt ashamed, confused, and tempted to end the pain. No one had any idea what she was going through until almost 10 years later. Thankfully, my friend is still here with us today. However, this not the case for many LGBTQ+ youth.
Some of you may already be familiar with The Trevor Project, but if you aren’t, it’s a national nonprofit organization which provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ+ youth under 25.
The Trevor Project offers 24/7 crisis hotlines over the phone, text, and even online instant messaging where LGBTQ+ youth can be connected with a trained counselor who is there to help, all at no cost. They also offer many suicide prevention training programs for adults who want to become TrevorChat/Text volunteer counselors, and for educators/school leaders who are trying to bring suicide prevention policies and resources into their campuses.
This is where the rainbow faux fur comes in.
I’ll be turning this luxury faux fur into Love Poms, and donating 20% of the proceeds to The Trevor Project. My hope is that we will be able to provide our struggling LGBTQ+ youth with comfort and support when they need it most.
We are all human. We all want to be loved and accepted. We all deserve to be happy and free.
If you are a young person in crisis, feeling suicidal, or in need of a safe and judgement free place to talk, please visit www.thetrevorproject.org or call the TrevorLifeline at 1-866-488-7386.
