You can save a kid’s life in 15 minutes
The girl’s voice was muffled.
“Can you hear me? I’m in my closet.”
– Robin, 13 years old*
The next time a young person cries out for help, you can make sure a trusted ally is ready to listen to them – whatever they’re struggling with, no matter how long it takes.
Whether it’s after school, late at night, or in between classes, that conversation could make all the difference for a young person like Robin. With help from counsellor Amanda, Robin built up the courage to report the physical and emotional abuse she’d been dealing with at home.
“Give Amanda a big hug for me. I don’t know what’s going to happen with my dad and me, but I’m going to be okay. Kids Help Phone saved my life.”
Thank you for giving kids a safe place and a listening ear, 365 days a year.
