Suicide Prevention Campaign
In October 2020, 3 Dollar Challenge partnered with The Reflect Organization, a national mental wellness nonprofit organization with college and university chapters across the country. Reflect is dedicated to empowering students to foster a culture of authenticity, self-love, and allyship on campus. Since the start of the pandemic, 1 in 4 people ages 18-24 have reported experiencing suicidal thoughts. Research shows that just one caring person can help to change, and even save a life. We used our strong reach on college students to raise awareness towards this extremely prevalent issue in our demographic today. We raised over $8,600 dollars, totaling to over $17,200 due to the 1:1 matching of all dollars raised by an anonymous donor. In total, the campaign had over 750 total donors participate in the challenge with involvement from more than 50 greek organizations around the nation.
