Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is this a joke?

A: Yes. There is no BuffCoin. Though if you had your finger on the trigger to invest in something worthwhile, we have a suggestion.

For this year’s April Fools, we wanted to use the spotlight to talk about a more serious topic, suicide. Suicide is a major public health concern which, according to the CDC in 2015, is the second leading cause of death among individuals between the ages of 15 and 34, and the third among individuals between the ages of 10 and 14. For this reason, we’ve chosen to support The Trevor Project, which focuses on crisis intervention and suicide prevention for LGBTQ youth.

Let’s Talk Stats

The Trevor Project offers crisis intervention services via a hotline, chat, and text. $120 is what it takes to cover a counselor’s shift, and $250 helps fund training for a crisis counselor. Your donation is tax-deductible and secure. Every dollar counts as every $1 funds another 1 minute for these services to support LGBTQ youth.

Our goal is to raise $10,000. Help us save lives. Donate today.
