Hi, my name is Shane. My birthday is on December 19th and this year I wanted to do something different than just going to dinner and having a big party with friends. I decided to use CrowdRise.com to launch a fundraising campaign for the amazing organization Love Is Louder (The Jed Foundation). I hope to raise $1000.00 by January 10th, 2013.
I know I’m not a celebrity and raising money can be intimidating (especially this time of year), but this website allows anyone and everyone to raise money for charities they believe in. Maybe you will consider launching a fundraising campaign for your next birthday.
Even as we work to stop negative words and actions that hurt us, we can strengthen our abilities to cope during hard times, focus on the positive, support the people around us and reach out for help if we need it. Please consider donating whatever you can. Thanks in advance, I appreciate all of you so much. Happy Holidays.

ABOUT LOVE IS LOUDER:
This organization was started by The Jed Foundation, MTV and Brittany Snow to support anyone feeling mistreated, misunderstood or alone. Love is Louder has become a movement where all types of people come together to raise the volume around the message that love and support are louder than any internal or external voice that brings us down. Individuals, communities, schools and organizations have embraced Love is Louder as a way to address issues like bullying, negative self-image, discrimination, loneliness and depression.
