Daniel Radcliffe, the handsome young actor who has portrayed teen wizard Harry Potter in 6 movies so far, has reportedly made “a major donation” to The Trevor Project, a non-profit organization that operates a nationwide crisis and suicide prevention helpline for LGBTQ youth.
A press release issued by The Trevor Project says that “the 20-year-old actor joined The Trevor Project’s Circle of Hope, a community of major donors which plays an essential role in providing the financial leadership that makes the organization’s lifesaving work possible.”
Other celebrities who are currently listed as members of The Trevor Project’s “Circle of Hope” include Jodie Foster, Sasha Baron Cohen and Anne Hathaway.
Included in the press release was this statement by Radcliffe himself: “I am very pleased to begin my support of The Trevor Project, which saves lives every day through its critical work... I deeply hope my support can raise the organization’s visibility so even more despondent youth become aware of The Trevor Helpline’s highly trained counselors and Trevor’s many other resources. It’s vitally important that young people understand they are not alone and, perhaps even more important, that their young lives have real value.”
They didn’t say what the actual amount of Radcliffe’s donation was.
