We had a very happy new year here at Youth Line! The amazing folk at We’re Funny That Way Foundation read about our need for a new phone system, and donated $7000 to the $1581 we’d already raised from our beloved community to help us EXCEED our $8000 goal!
Here’s some info about this important org:
We’re Funny That Way is a national fundraising organization whose goal is to raise funds to support queer organizations across Canada. Specifically, the We’re Funny That Way™ Foundation aims to donate funds to organizations that will be highly impacted by their receipt. Towards that end, we try to seek out small, struggling, or start-up organizations especially those in less populated areas, that support the queer community in a variety of ways. We support youth, health, social, and arts organizations. We aim to make our grants have the most impact possible and by focusing on groups that operate on shoestring budgets or groups that bring essential services such as counselling and support to queer youth we intend to meet that goal.
Thank you so much, We’re Funny that Way Foundation! Your gift will have an enormous impact on Youth Line and our continuing ability to provide peer support to LGBTTQQI2SA Ontario youth provincewide. Your support, together with the support of all the generous individuals who donated to the fund, will make sure that we’re always here to answer the call when youth just need someone to listen.
