Our #saveHQ Campaign Was a Success!
WE NEEDED YOUR HELP AND HELP YOU DID!
We had a roller-coaster of a month working on this campaign and we are excited to announce that its been a success. We couldn't have done it with your help. We've met our goal of $90,000 by December 5th, and we were provided a matching grant by the Kansas department of Aging and Disability Services. Any gifts to Headquarters made during the month of December will be matched by KDADS up to $25,000. As a result we've extended the #saveHQ website's deadline to December 31st, and encourage you to keep sharing the word about Headquarters Counseling Center. Thank you to all who have already made a donation or raised awareness to help us meet this goal.
Join our social media campaign to help raise awareness for our #saveHQ fundraising campaign. It's easy. Stream or upload a short video of yourself holding our I am Headquarters sign while you tell your friends and followers why you support Headquarters and suicide prevention. Tag Headquarters Counseling Center on Facebook or @hqcc_ks on Twitter and use the hastag #saveHQ. Use this link to connect to our #saveHQ donation page.
Your support of our services is more important now than ever before. In today's tight economic times, we, like many social service agencies locally and nationally, face decreases in funding. While we're working hard to address those issues, we still need help to keep the phone lines open for the many in our community who reach out to us for help.
Every single day of the year, we provide life-saving counseling for people in crisis 24 hours a day. We answer that call 25,000 times a year. Every caller needs to be heard and needs the skilled, caring help we provide. That is why your donation to HQCC really does help us save lives.
