Hi! If you don’t know me, my name is Tyler Oakley. For the past month, I’ve been raising money for charity to celebrate my birthday. My initial goal was $150,000 for The Trevor Project (the leading national organization for crisis and suicide prevention specializing in LGBT youth).
So far, we’ve raised over $400,000, and the power of this community has humbled me more than I can express. Now, with four days to go, I’m challenging my people to help us come together to reach $500,000 as our final goal! Imagine half a million dollars helping save young lives. Incredible.
There are tons of rewards for people who donate, one of the most popular being this SUPER CUTE T-SHIRT for anyone who donates $50. Also, as an added bonus, every donation enters you to win the grand prize: a trip for two to Los Angeles - and if you want, a dinner date with me.
Help me use my birthday to help others reach more of their birthdays. Every donation helps, and when we come together, we can do big things. Think of it this way - would you rather get a couple drinks from Starbucks or help save lives? And remember: it’s not about getting a few people to donate the MOST money, it’s about getting EVERYONE to donate what they can. To those who have already donated - thank you. We couldn’t have gotten this far without you. If possible, consider donating again, or telling your best friend about why they should. <3
If you’ve made it this far, please reblog this. I need YOUR help spreading the word in these final days of fundraising. You guys are incredible. Thank you. <3
(Look at how many notes this has, and imagine if all those people donated $10. We’d be so much closer to our goal. Let’s do this. I’m talking to YOU.)
