Daniel Radcliffe co-host’s Get Connected charity auction
Daniel Radcliffe took some of his time to co-host the Get Connected charity auction, which raised 270,000 GBP with winning bids reaching as high as 8,000 GBP for a private box to see Jay Z and Kanye West and 20,000 GBP for a weekend on a super yacht.
Dan has been a long-time supporter of the Get Connected charity, which helps individuals under 25 years old with any issue. At the auction, Dan stated:
“So many young people are facing really tough times and have no idea where to turn to for help. I’m delighted to support Get Connected and its Helpline Volunteers, who give up their time to support the thousands of young people who call in desperate need of help.”
During the event, Dan met forty very excited members of Teen Rock Choir, a group of singers aged 10 to 24, who performed during the event. The Teen Rock Choir represented the ages of the 1,500 young people who call the Get Connected helpline every week for assisting youngsters on issues of homelessness, bullying, self-harm, anorexia, addiction, and suicide.
If you would like to support Get Connected, please visit their website as they rely solely on donations. The service is available via phone, text, email, webchat and the online directory, WebHelp 24/7.
