Help uplift LGBTQ young people in crisis.
Spread a message of love and acceptance.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month, a time when we focus on destigmatizing the conversation around mental health and urge folks to seek out the services they need, especially when they’re struggling. This is an issue that greatly impacts the LGBTQ community. According to research by The Trevor Project, more than 1.8 million LGBTQ young people in the US seriously consider suicide every year.
Knowing the statistics, how can we as an Artist Community make a difference in their lives? We can start by doing what we do best—make art. For your next challenge benefiting The Trevor Project, we’re asking artists to make new designs that are inspirational, spread mental health awareness, and let LGBTQ young people in crisis know they are not alone. While brainstorming, think of symbols of love, acceptance, and community. As always, it’s entirely up to you which creative path you choose, whether you express your message through bold typography, deep symbolism, or tasteful humor.
Threadless is donating $1 per unit sold from this challenge to The Trevor Project, whose mission is to end suicide among LGBTQ young people through crisis services, peer support, research, advocacy, and education. We'll donate up to $5,000 to The Trevor Project. If you would like to join the fundraising efforts, you can also donate a portion of your own proceeds from your new designs through Threadless Causes.
NOTE: The Trevor Project's name and/or logo should NOT be incorporated into your design submission. Submissions that do feature The Trevor Project's name and/or logo will not be accepted or considered. Further, submissions will require a moderation before being shown on challenge page. Thank you for your patience.
