As Leaky has reported previously, the Trevor Project, which began in 1998, aims to work towards suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth in the United States.  The organization comprises many ventures including "Dear Trevor, an online question-and-answer forum for young people with questions surrounding sexual orientation and gender identity; The Trevor Survival Kit, an educational kit distributed to schools and youth service providers to help educators facilitate discussions about suicide, gender identity and sexual orientation; and TrevorSpace, an online social networking community for LGBTQ youth, their friends and allies."

The 24/7 Trevor Helpline can be contacted in the United States by calling 866-4-U-TREVOR (866-488-7386).

It’s a pity most famous people don’t support organizations that do such a great work like the Trevor proyect, because they are afraid of what people would say or because is not good such a good advertisement as supporting cute animals or recycling… That’s why Dan’s support is even more admirable.
I’m sure thanks to this now much more people will help and all people will know they can call them if they need help.

It’s always rewarding to see someone you admire take a stand and use his/her image and fame for the benefit of such a great cause… They’re helping so many people! It’s awesome! What an example he’s setting!
