Fill the silence for youth in Canada
No kid should have to struggle alone – especially during the holidays.
Sometimes, just knowing someone cares can make a life-changing difference for a young person.
You can be that someone.
Your gift today will fill the silence for a kid who feels like they have no one to talk to. You’ll give the gift of free, professional, non-judgmental support through phone, text, or instant message – 24/7/365.
Will you give today and ensure young people always have someone to talk to at Kids Help Phone?
Thank you for your help this morning. It warms my heart to know that people like you exist to help people like me. It makes me feel less alone in this world and reminds me that I don’t need to struggle alone. – grateful service user
