#GivingTuesday (Support Mental Health Support)

Although #GivingTuesday is December 2, 2014, The Jed Foundation has opened up this amazing fundraising campaign from November 25, 2014 at 12:00pm through January 6, 2015 at 12:00pm.

Now, we need your help to reach our goal of $500. How do you do it?

STEP 1:  Go to: https://www.crowdrise.com/thejedfoundation-tower/fundraiser/lfccgivesback

STEP 2: Click on the large PINK button to DONATE and add a brick to the                              JED Foundation Tower

AND THAT’S IT!!! About 5 minutes and you have made a HUGE difference!!!

What does your donation do?

For most of us, our college years represent a time of exploration and learning, of growth and anticipation, of independence and confidence. They represent the transition to adulthood, to a career, a life of one’s own, to a future of possibility.

But for many of us, these years can also be a time of isolation, of social anxiety and intense peer pressure. We see these issues too often in the headlines: a death from binge drinking, a drug overdose, a university shooting, a suicide. These tragedies affect entire communities—students, faculty, coaches, professors, and parents alike. Even more jarring is that these tragedies are avoidable. They can be prevented.

This is why The Jed Foundation takes a comprehensive approach to prevent high-risk behavior among students. We help colleges assess and improve their emotional health efforts and inform the student conversation through partnerships and campaigns to build the foundation for an emotionally healthy environment—the kind of environment that is characterized by caring and connectedness, that celebrates and protects every student life.

An Added Bonus!!

HELP US EXCEED THE GOAL $500 CHRIS LAMBERT WILL TAKE ON A CHALLENGE OF YOUR CHOICE. POST YOUR IDEAS TO THE FOCUS AT LFCC.EDU/FOCUS/GIVING                BY DEC. 22.
