Buy A Kid Some Time

You can give a listening ear and a step forward for youth in crisis.

No matter the issue, your gift of confidential, anonymous counselling can change a kid’s life. For the 1 in 5 teens in Canada who consider suicide, you could even save a life. Your kindness will help young people harness their inner strength and build the resiliency to get through the next hour, next day, or next year.

When you Buy A Kid Some Time right now, your impact will be doubled! Marshalls Canada, our generous partner, will match your gift dollar for dollar – every $1 you donate will become $2*!

Choose how much time you’d like to give. We’ll put your donation into action where it’s urgently needed.

$25 supports our confidential mobile app, Always There. It takes a kid less than 5 minutes to download the app to find safe, reliable information.


$50 will connect a young person to a professional counsellor by phone. The average counselling call helps a child in need in about 15 minutes.


$100 supports our innovative BroTalk program, designed to offer a support zone especially for guys to talk about any problem.


$150 connects a teen to a counsellor on Live Chat. It’s ideal for kids who are uncomfortable or unable to call.


$200 provides professional counselling to a young person in crisis, and refers them to local support to get them the help they need after the call.
