Every RSVP Matters

“Hosting community events is such an impactful way that we are able to bring people together for teen suicide prevention. It gives us an opportunity to distribute our resources, fundraise in the community, and gain new supporters,” said Courtney Collins, the charity’s events coordinator. “Aside from being a fun place for parents and teens to create memories, our events spark conversations about teen mental health. It is so important that we – as parents, counselors, and family members – normalize talking about stress, depression, and anxiety, especially in our children.”

Nonprofit fundraising allows charities to fund their mission, pay overhead costs, and develop educational programs. The Bay Area youth charity has been focused on teen suicide prevention since its founding in 2015. It’s a noble cause, to say the least. According to the CDC, teen suicide rates have been skyrocketing in this country and remain the third leading cause of death in ages 15-19. Youth and young adults ages 10-24 account for a whopping 14% of all suicide deaths in the country. A Brighter Day works tirelessly against those statistics every day.

Every attendance matters and they encourage everyone to RSVP for their Virtual Gala, sponsor or donate, and most importantly – take action today against teen suicide.
