Daniel supports the Trevor Project

There had been a press release from The Trevor Project, America's leading national organisation focussed on crisis and suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gax bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth.

Daniel became a financial supporter and joined its Circle of Hope, a “community of major donors” to the organization by giving a "major donation".

This is what Daniel said about it:

In text:
“I am very pleased to begin my support of The Trevor Project, which saves lives every day through its critical work,” said Daniel Radcliffe. “It's extremely distressing to consider that in 2009 suicide is a top three killer of young people, and it's truly devastating to learn that LGBTQ youth are up to four times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers. I deeply hope my support can raise the organization's visibility so even more despondent youth become aware of The Trevor Helpline's highly trained counselors and Trevor's many other resources. It's vitally important that young people understand they are not alone and, perhaps even more important, that their young lives have real value.”
Executive director and chief executive officer Charles Robbins:
“We're incredibly grateful to Daniel for his truly inspiring and historic generosity and support,"

“He is setting a meaningful example for millions of young people around the world by embracing diversity and demonstrating that he cares deeply about the well-being of LGBTQ youth."
