I’m hoping you’ll support a project that couldn’t be dearer to my heart. I’ve joined with others to raise $50,000 for the Alliance of Hope for Suicide Loss Survivors. I know what it’s like to lose someone to suicide. I served on a Special Forces team in Vietnam. In the decade after our return, ten of the twelve members of my team killed themselves. I almost joined them.
Today I understand that in the aftermath of suicide loss, survivors are almost 10 times more likely to feel suicidal themselves. Back then, I didn’t understand what I was going through.
When someone dies by suicide, it’s as if a grenade goes off. Those left behind are wounded in ways that impact them immediately and eat away over time.
The work of the Alliance of Hope couldn’t be more important. It’s saving people’s lives each and every day. That’s why I serve on their board.
It’s having unprecedented growth and needs funds to hire a professional staff so that it can continue to serve the staggering amount of survivors who turn to it for help each year—last month alone it had 166,000 visits to their online forum.
