There’s no better way to celebrate the season than by helping those who need it most. This Giving Tuesday, donate to Dan’s Legacy to help provide youth at risk with free counselling and life-skills support services.
Youth like “Tanya”, a 21-year-old Indigenous young woman who is dealing with severe anxiety and depression and relying on an abusive partner for support. Dan’s Legacy’s therapist helped her to make a plan that took her out of the abusive situation, into safe housing, and into our “Intro to Cook” job-skills training program. Financial independence, as well as weekly therapy sessions to help her manage anxiety and depression, will give her the tools she needs to fully realize her life goals.
Your donations this Giving Tuesday will help us make the holidays brighter for our youth clients, with things like grocery gift cards for young moms, transit passes to help our clients get to counselling sessions, phones with SIM cards to apply for jobs, apartment rentals, and to get in touch with our therapists if they’re in crisis.
Corporate Holiday Giving
Interested in hosting your own fundraising event in support of Dan’s Legacy this holiday season? Here are a few ideas to bring your friends, colleagues, and customers together in a fun and creative way while making a difference in the lives of youth at risk:
- Start a Giving Tree (We’ll send you a list of things our youth clients need – like warm clothes and grocery cards)
- Bake Sale
- Holiday Gift Basket Raffle or 50/50
- Donate a portion of proceeds from sales
- Create your own!
The holidays are a tough time for our youth clients who don’t have families to turn to for support. Let them know they haven’t been forgotten and there are generous folks who care. Thank you for bringing comfort and joy into their lives when they need it most.
