The Trevor Project is the world's largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ+ youth. The nonprofit organization is focused on suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning youth. Through a toll-free telephone number (1-866-488-7386) The Trevor Project operates The Trevor Lifeline, a confidential service that offers trained counselors to help provide crisis intervention and suicide prevention services for LGBTQ+ people under 25, as well as to offer guidance and resources to parents and educators in order to foster safe, accepting, and inclusive environments for all youth, at home and at school.
Since its founding in 1952, Ultra PRO has always been at the forefront leading the industry of collectible storage, and that is not only limited to the accessories we produce, but also to the environments we make, the innovations we create, and the causes we champion. The Trevor Project is exactly the type of partner Ultra PRO is looking to work with when it comes to social issues and mental health.
We believe in the mission set forth by The Trevor Project each and every day, month, and year since they were founded in 1998. We believe that no young person should go through life facing crises without help from those who want to be of aid. We believe in the type of hands-on, tangible benefit that The Trevor Project provides to most effectively give back to the community. And we believe gaming is for everyone. So as to bring the greatest benefit, the best support, and the most focus to The Trevor Project at their most crucial fundraising time, Pride Month, Ultra PRO is pleased, proud, and privileged to announce our partnership with The Trevor Project & Wizards of the Coast!
Ultra PRO will dedicate $18.50 of every single playmat sold to benefit The Trevor Project in alignment with the Magic: The Gathering PRIDE Secret Lair drop. From the first to the last, every single Sol Ring playmat will have a percentage of that sale go towards The Trevor Project. This includes the all new Pride Sol Ring playmat, the cards for which are available through Secret Lair: Pride and this playmat only available through Ultra PRO!
Gaming is for everyone, and in this way Ultra PRO can show our support of the amazing work The Trevor Project does: making a difference in the lives of thousands of young people each and every day. Visit TheTrevorProject.org to learn more!
