World Suicide Prevention Day 2015
TWLOHA's fundraiser for World Suicide Prevention Day and National Suicide Prevention Week 2015.
We'll See You Tomorrow.
To close out last year’s NSPW campaign, our founder Jamie Tworkowski wrote these words:
“None of this ends tonight. National Suicide Prevention Week was a taste. It was a start. We keep going and we go together. We lean on people and we invite people to lean on us. We ask honest questions and we give honest answers. We ask for help, because we know that it’s okay to ask for help.
Above all else, we choose to stay. We choose to fight the darkness and the sadness, to fight the questions and the lies and the myth of all that’s missing. We choose to stay, because we are stories still going. Because there is still some time for things to turn around, time for surprises and for change. We stay because no one else can play our part.
Life is worth living.
We’ll see you tomorrow.”
Although we know so many people are struggling today, we also know there are many organizations just like ours working to make sure that those people stay alive to see tomorrow.
Tomorrow offers the promise of hope.
Tomorrow means refusing to believe the lie that stigma tells.
Tomorrow means saying, “None of this ends tonight.”
The campaign will run from August 12th - September 13th. Over the course of the month leading up to National Suicide Prevention Week, we will be partnering with other organizations and people of influence to challenge the stigma of suicide. Every dollar donated to this page will be invested directly into avenues of treatment and recovery.
We're also offering the following prizes to fundraisers:
2 VIP tickets for you and a friend to Vans Warped Tour in the city closest to you. We’ll cover your travel expenses and give you $200 worth of TWLOHA merch.
2 VIP tickets for you and a friend to HEAVY AND LIGHT in Orlando, FL, complete with round-trip airfare and hotel stay.
