The Selfling Teen Support Foundation’s crowdfunding campaign is now live on Alberta Boostr’s crowdfunding platform!
This will be the most critical 45 days of Selfling’s young life but we are confident that our home of Calgary, and our great province of Alberta will rise to meet the challenge with us. I think some folks from other provinces might even jump on the bandwagon.
That’s right, you don’t even have to be in Alberta. You can pledge to us from anywhere. Don’t worry, we’ll make sure you get some love.
What is so crucial about this campaign is that it’s going to fund the prototype of the Selfling Teen Support App. Our main offering as an organization. You probably know at least a little about it if you have gotten this far on our site.
The app is designed to help enhance the services offered by teen support agencies but it’s also meant raise more awareness. What our research has told us is that a lot of youth will go about their days feeling too awkward or nervous about asking for help with an issue. And those are the youths that know help exists! Further, there are still a lot of youth that look for guidance on the internet and not all that information is reliable. Sometimes it’s downright dangerous.
The Selfling Teen Support App can be the place to go for teens who really need help with a crisis or for teens who just want to duck in, ask a question, and duck out.
You can help us with that by contributing to our crowdfunding campaign.
We are looking for $18,000 to pay for our prototype so that we can take it to the agencies in Calgary. Those agencies and the teens they work with can test it out and their responses will help us engineer version 2. That’s where it gets really fun!
So go and take a look at our campaign, donate what you can afford, and get a cool reward out of it as well!
Thanks in advance for all your help and let’s help teens shine!
