Host a Third Party Event

Show your love and host a third party event for YouthLine!

 

Hosting third party events are great for people who are inspired to bring together their community, colleagues and friends to support the essential services LGBT Youth Line provides by and for LGBTQ2S youth across Ontario.

 

Proceeds from third party events and initiatives account for 25% of our annual fundraising needs and go directly into our training and mentoring programs, as well as critical operational needs of our service delivery to reach more than 5,000 youth annually.

 

Whether you are a student or a professional, an organization or a group of friends, if you believe in helping young people develop as leaders and receive judgement-free support in navigating barriers that disproportionately affect LGBTQ2S youth, then Show Your Love is an easy way to make an impact.

 

Here’s what some of our Show Your Love partners have done to raise funds for us:

“Youth Line has been absolutely wonderful to work with. We appreciate everything they do for youth, and are so excited to be able to contribute to their mission.”

“Since Leeloodles has started it has been a vital point to always give back. Leeloominai, the artist behind Leeloodles, believes that it is important to use your voice, your platform as a person, to always help, in her case her artistry. When Pride was approaching in spring 2017, Leeloo knew exactly what she wanted, which was to contribute to the LGBT community, help out fellow youth and work with a local organization. Fast-forward to Pride month and Leeloodles set their hearts on LGBT Youth Line. With great success, we managed to sell a specially made Pride tee with profits going directly to LGBT Youth Line. The Pride tee were meant to only be sold for one month, it has now remained to be a Leeloodles staple. We look forward to continuing to support and grow with everyone at the LGBT Youth Line.”

– Team Leeloodles, Toronto, ON
