The nonprofit To Write Love on Her Arms just announced its “#IWasMadeFor” campaign to honor National Suicide Prevention Week (September 10 – September 16) and World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10)today.The campaign theme is “Stay. Find what you were made for.”
The theme comes from a book called When Hope Speaks, written by former TWLOHA intern Jessica Morris. With the hope of encouraging people to continue living, Jessica wrote:
“Fight for these moments. Please stay.
Stay and discover these new lands. These new people. The hidden gems you didn’t even know existed. Stay and find out what you were made for. You are not a failure. You are not irreparably broken. Step forward now, crawl if you must, into a grace that shines light into the shadows of your soul. You are safe here. In fact, this is home.”
“The most important thing we can do as an organization is give people a reason to stay, to move from despair to hope, and to connect them to the resources they need and deserve,” says CFO Lindsay Kolsch. “We hope this campaign will do that for the millions of people struggling with thoughts of suicide.”
People can participate in this year’s campaign by purchasing the organization’s World Suicide Prevention Day pack, joining the conversation on Twitter and Instagram using #IWasMadeFor, and donating to the fundraising campaign. TWLOHA will directly invest every dollar from the “#IWasMadeFor” campaign into treatment and recovery.
To Write Love on Her Arms is a nonprofit dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire, and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery. Since its start in 2006, TWLOHA has donated over $1.8 million directly into treatment and recovery and answered over 200,000 emails from over 100 countries.
