Ninth blog

Hi hi watch this! http://youtu.be/X09MYZaizjk

So as you should know my project has been all about raising awareness and prevention for suicide and depression. One of my favorite youtubers, Tyler Oakley, is very passionate about the same thing. While watching one of his recent videos (the one linked above) I realized that this organization could be one that suits my project well. 

What he is doing is raising money for the  Trevor project, which is an organization that has help lines for suicidal teens. My only problem with this organization is that even though they have the helpline for all teens in need of help, they have a lot more options that are primarily for LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bi, transgender, questioning) youth. While I think that is still great, I wanted something more broad. But I will continue to look into it. 

Now if I fully decide I want to donate to this charity, Tyler makes it easy to do through him and has prizes for certain amounts you donate, which would be how I got people to donate to me. I could maybe have them pay to enter a raffle to win one of the prizes or something like that. Also if you raise $1000 you get a Skype call with Tyler himself, which in pretty sure is something people would pay to do. This is just a thought through, I'm not quite sure on what to go through with. 

But I can assure you that you will be he first to be informed when I figure more out. Until next time.
