BENEFITING: To Write Love on Her Arms
EVENT DATE: Mar 17, 2011
My senior year of high school was this crazy, beautiful, disastrous clash of the best days of my life and the absolute worst. On December 7, 2008 My older sister, Amie Martin committed suicide in her house. She left behind 3 beautiful children and a family who misses her dearly. Not even six months later, just weeks before senior prom, year books, and graduation one of my best friends, Cate Polgar, committed suicide in my other friend's house. Both Cate and Amie suffered from depression and mental illness that none of us could understand however they were two of the most beautiful people. I would like to raise money to make an initial donation, on March 17th (Amie's birthday) to TWLOHA (To Write Love On Her Arms) a charity that is spreading awareness all over the country about depression, self harm, and suicide. I would like to continue to raise money after that and keep donating on each of their birthdays and other important days to TWLOHA in hopes that no more beautiful young men and women feel lost enough to take their own lives. Please join me in helping everyone see how amazing they really are.
