Walk so kids can talk

28 Mar

Kids Help Phone is an amazing organization that has been providing youth with non-judgemental, sound advice since May of 1989! The organization provides free and confidential professional counselling via phone and online forums. They offer advice on anything concerning youth –  breakups, suicide, divorce, bullying, etc. What’s important to KHP is that, if a child needed someone to talk to (even if it was something trivial like a boyfriend not texting back), someone was there to help them.

The organization prides itself on being accessible to youth. You’ll find their phone # plastered on all kinds of products (e.g. chocolate bars) and soon, they will be available to chat via IM! In order to continue providing these great services to kids, KHP fundraises over 25% of their operating budget from the annual Walk so Kids can Talk event. It’s a family-friendly event, so sign up to walk today. If you cannot make it out to the walk, please donate and encourage your friends to do the same!
