I NEED YOUR HELP!
It's serious, and I need you to help with something very personal to me... I know we all get spammed, we all see the constant go-fund some random thing- but I'm asking for your help in investing in not a thing, or an adventure, but in a LIFE.
Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US. That's almost 45,000 people every year. SERIOUSLY! Someone's son, daughter, brother, sister, friend... It's time we stopped hiding, and whispering, and thinking the subject is taboo. It's real, and it effects us all. I lost one of my best friends, Jeremy, on Jan 11, 2009. It wasn't selfish, he actually thought it was for every reason BUT being selfish. Instead he left the broken hearts of family, friends, a wife and 2 kids. Jeremy Moore, Christine Chavoya, Robin Williams, Chris Cornell, Chester Bennington... Mental illness is real, and unfortunately we all saw how real it can be- even with celebrities.
For the last several years I have walked in community walks and an overnight walk - 16 miles overnight- to help raise awareness, to fund research and educational programs, to keep this from happening to another family... to SAVE A LIFE!
So I'm asking for your help. If you know someone who has attempted suicide, or you wish that someone like Chester knew you were there for them to talk to- please donate just $5. It would mean the world to me, and mean so much more to those who are struggling.
WE can make a difference. WE can talk about it. WE can be there for someone who needs it most. WE can save a LIFE :)
Please help me reach my goal by clicking the "Donate" button on this page. All donations are 100% tax deductible and benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), funding research, education, advocacy, and support for those affected by suicide.
Thank you for your support!
