This #GivingTuesday, help us save lives!

This year, as it has been for the last 52 years, while most people are pulling their beautifully roasted turkeys out of the oven, slicing into pumpkin pies, gathering around to watch the football game, or gearing up for Black Friday sales, our crisis line volunteers will be here. As hard-working community volunteers and agencies share moving stories and pictures of supplies, meals, and donations given, our crisis line volunteers will be here. They keep our lines open and available through Christmas, New Year’s, and everyday.

Our crisis line volunteers serve tirelessly and anonymously, saving lives and connecting with callers in pain, year after year.

This year, on Giving Tuesday, please consider honoring the work our volunteers do by making a contribution to Suicide Prevention, where every dollar goes toward saving lives, preventing crises, educating our community and schools about signs and risk factors, and connecting people to the help they so desperately need.

On November 27th, Facebook and PayPal will be matching up to $250,000 to nonprofits starting 5 AM PST (no fees!). If you’d like to donate, please visit this link.

Don’t have Facebook but want to give online? Feel free to give HEREĀ at Suicide Prevention’s PayPal Giving Fund page (no fees either!).
