Sir Ivan Gives 100K to Trevor Project

By Charlotte Robinson, November 20, 2012
Dance-pop recording artist Sir Ivan pledged $100,000 to The Trevor Project, the leading national organization providing crisis intervention & suicide prevention services for LGBTQ youth. The donation was made by Sir Ivan & The Peaceman Foundation a nonprofit established by Sir Ivan, in 2005, to battle hatred, violence & Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Sir Ivan stated, “As the son of a Holocaust survivor, I was made aware from a very young age of the need to stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves, the bullied, the persecuted. Through my music & whatever influence I may have, I want to demonstrate the importance of acceptance and understanding. I’m particularly focused on the needs of the LGBT community & specifically, LGBT youth – who are up to four times more likely than straight teenagers to attempt suicide. There is never an excuse for harassment and bullying, & I, for one, will not stand for it.” Abbe Land, Executive Director & CEO of The Trevor Project added, “The Trevor Project is grateful to Sir Ivan & the Peaceman Foundation for their generous support of our life-saving, life-affirming services for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender & questioning youth. Every gift helps The Trevor Project ensure our services are always available & young people in crisis can plan for a future that begins today.”
