Each year on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving folks come together in a large giving event to support non-profits with a mission close to their hearts. This year Erasing the Distance is on an a specific mission to impact as many young people as possible and we need your help.
Impacting students one story at a time...
Your donations to Erasing The Distance this holiday season will bring mental health awareness to our schools. On Giving Tuesday, your donation will help provide a safe space for hundreds of students to spark dialogue about the impact of this pandemic on their mental health.
A generous gift of $1500 provides programming for a school audience of at least 100 students. A story relevant to the experiences of the student population will be shared, followed by a feedback session that engages students in open dialogue to explore what resources are available to them and discover ways they can support one another.
Our school partners constantly inform us of the value of this opportunity for young people to begin a dialogue with their counselors about their own and their peer's mental health. These interventions can improve students' overall experience of school and save lives. And, we know that with the ongoing challenges of the coronavirus pandemic, our young people have shouldered many invisible weights during the upheaval of what was once "normal" life.
Join us this Giving Tuesday, November 30th, as we raise funds to end the stigma of mental illness in schools. Donate what you can, or support your neighborhood school or alma mater by funding the full amount to bring an Erasing The Distance program to their students.
Here are a few ways you can contribute
It is true that a gift of ANY amount brings us that much closer to providing each and every one of the items listed above. Thank you considering supporting our young people and furthering the work of erasing the destructive stigma that surrounds mental health.
