BOXFOX x The Trevor Project

BOXFOX x The Trevor Project

Posted by Aly Tiznado on

BOXFOX is proud to announce that for the month of June, we are celebrating PRIDE in a big way by partnering with The Trevor Project. We have curated our PRIDE gift box in the spirit of self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. We often find ourselves asking, what is the role of a privately-held company in America? For us, it’s continuing to stand up for and with anyone who could be struggling. If you’re eager to support The Trevor Project’s mission (read more below!), there are two ways to shop in support of The Trevor Project this June: 

  1. We will be donating 20% of all sales from our Ready to Ship PRIDE BOXFOX to The Trevor Project. 
  2. We’ll be donating 10% of sales from  items with a rainbow icon when you Build a (100% custom!) BOXFOX. All of these items called out are either from LGBTQ-owned brands or other allied brands that have previously partnered with The Trevor Project and/or advocated visibility for the LGBTQ+ community.

What is The Trevor Project: 

The Trevor Project is the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ (lesbian,  gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning) young people. The organization works to save young lives by  providing support through free and confidential suicide prevention and crisis intervention programs on platforms  where young people spend their time: our 24/7 phone lifeline, chat, and text. They also run TrevorSpace, the world’s  largest safe space social networking site for LGBTQ youth, and operate innovative education, research, and  advocacy programs. 

How they are making a difference:

More than 1.8 million LGBTQ young people  seriously consider suicide in the U.S. every year.  LGBTQ youth who come from highly rejecting  families are at higher risk of suicide. 

According to Trevor's 2020 National Survey on LGBTQ Youth Mental Health…. 

  • 46% of LGBTQ youth report they wanted  psychological or emotional counseling  from a mental health professional but  were unable to receive it in the past 12  months 
  • 6 in 10 LGBTQ youth said someone  attempted to convince them to change  their sexual orientation or gender identity;  35% said it was a parent or caregiver 

How the COVID-19 has impacted the LGBTQ+ youth community:  This year has been difficult for everyone, but it  has been especially challenging for LGBTQ  youth, who already face hardships such as  rejection and discrimination. 

According to a poll conducted by Morning Consult on behalf of The Trevor Project

  • 55% of LGBTQ youth reported symptoms of  anxiety due to COVID-19, and 69% of trans  and gender nonbinary youth report symptoms of depression due to COVID-19 
  • Over 40% of LGBTQ youth stated that  COVID-19 impacted their ability to express  their LGBTQ identity. A third of all LGBTQ  youth said they were unable to be themselves at home.
