In this episode we take a look at another one of our Lixar Community Partners. The Kids Help Phone and Lixar have partnered for a number of years to help provide essential support for youth in crisis. The charitable organization provides free online, text, and telephone counselling to kids in need via a toll-free number and a myriad of other services, and it’s one we’re very proud to support. We chat with Jessica Pancoe, Manager of Eastern Ontario, Community Fundraising and Corporate Development at Kids Help Phone. about the organization, some of the tech that goes into providing this service, and what you can do to get involved.
We’re happy to support the Kids Help Phone through events like an annual poker tournament in collaboration with Bell, a “hackers and whackers” golf tournament, and a 5K fun run called “Walk so Kids Can Talk”. This years edition of the walk takes place on May 5th 2019, and is an excellent way to get involved with Kids Help Phone.
