Grateful for an incredibly successful #GivingTuesday

posted December 27, 2016

For the first time in Exhale history, we joined the #GivingTuesday festivities to help us raise money to meet the increased demand for our national talkline.

The response was incredible.

We raised $14,760, surpassing our $12,000 goal. We are very grateful to our 19 volunteer fundraisers who helped us achieve this goal, and to all the donors – many of whom are brand new to Exhale – who believe in our mission. We will be able to use these gifts right away as we review counselor applications and gear up to train them.  After 60 hours of training, we’ll have a very skilled group of counselors who can meet the ever-growing demand for the Exhale talkline.

We also had a special guest join for a chat on Facebook Live: Glynn Washington, from the radio show Snap Judgment. He sat down with Exhale Founder, Aspen Baker, to discuss storytelling in this new political climate. It was an amazing testament to the power of pro-voice. Click here to watch!

It was an incredible day and we are grateful to our supporters for making it so successful. We will keep you posted on our progress in bringing on the new volunteer counselors and training them throughout the coming year. Stay tuned!
