Last week was Giving Tuesday and InvisiYouth Charity was able to announce the simple way people can help keep InvisiYouth and its free resources going in 2024!
One of our private board members will be matching every single donation to InvisiYouth, AND making a donation to match every purchase of our Subtle Activist Color-Block bracelets, and we’re super grateful!
Now…WHY DO WE NEED YOU TO DONATE OR BUY A BRACELET?
InvisiYouth provides our monthly resources and programming all year long for FREE for deserving teens and young adults living with chronic illnesses and disabilities. It’s our mission to empower them in all the non-medical aspects of their lives so they can adapt to thrive with any health struggles, so they need that mental wellbeing and life-approach strategies so they can find success and joy for themselves in daily living!
But we need YOUR HELP to continue doing this! And it just got TWICE as easy to make an impact!
If you donate to InvisiYouth (or buy one of our bracelets at the InvisiYouth Charity Shop) you’re supporting a great cause and every donation AND every bracelet sale is matched with a donation directly to InvisiYouth Charity! And 100% of every cent donated will directly go positively impacting the lives of young adults living with chronic illness and disability!
Special shout out to those that help out in big and small ways to give back and make a difference in our mission with our InvisiYouth Freestyle Volunteers and it’s two divisions : “Medically Adult-ish™” Division and Healthcare Students & Professionals Division
We truly are humbled by all the love and support that each and every one of you give to us throughout the year. By your support, donations, shares of our platform, and involvement in all our advocacy, resources and campaigns, we are able to reach thousands of young adults around the world, and provide an outlet of empowerment to thrive with health struggles and NEVER wait for a cure/recovery in order to live life fully.
If you want to fundraise, volunteer, donate, or join our #InvisiYouthGalaxy community in any way, contact us! Again, we have so much gratitude for this and thank you!
