As you may know, we started our major fundraising drive for the year this month. Our goal, for the year, is to raise just over $40,000 from new donors in order to best sustain, support and grow our organization.
Since we began the drive on the 13th, you've helped us raise just over $5,000. If the donors who chose to give monthly all keep that up for the year, that will get us to $8,500 of the total funds we need. Hooray!
We're still a long way off from raising what we need, though.
Here to help save the day, longtime Scarleteen donor, supporter and superhero (and also kickass science author) Stephen Luntz has offered a $2,000 match for funds we can raise from today at 9AM PST, through Thursday, February 28th, at 9 AM PST.
That's just $2,000 we need your help generating in the next 48 hours in order to grab those matching funds.
(We won't actually grab them. We'll take them only when offered and then say thank you politely.)
Check out this new infographic from Jacob, a volunteer at Scarleteen, below, who talks about why he feels Scarleteen is so important for young people, and paints a digital picture of why your support is so crucial.
You can read our appeal this year, find out why we need your help, and how we use that help here. If you have the means, we'd really appreciate whatever you can give in the next two days so we can meet this match, and get $4,000 closer to our goal.
If you don't have the ability to help financially yourself, but know someone else who might, someone you suspect will care just as much about all we do as we do, and as you do, sharing this with your friends or family via email or social media is an excellent way to help us out, too.
If you would like to support us in some other way, such as through advertising, sponsorship or by volunteering your time or if you have any questions about donating, we'd love to hear from you. You can contact us via e-mail here.
