THE STORY:

Logan and I will be hauling ourselves up 600 steps on Sunday 10th September - Worldwide Suicide Awareness Day, and are doing this in order to raise funds for TELL - the Tokyo English Lifeline. TELL, an accredited not-for-profit organization (NPO) with a 40+ year history to the international and Japanese community in Japan, operates a telephone Lifeline, as well as confidential mental health support and counseling services. TELL Lifeline receives approximately 6,000 calls a year from all over Japan, of which roughly 60 percent come from Japanese citizens and 40 percent from Japan-resident foreigners. TELL are aiming to take their Lifeline service 24 hours 7 days a week by 2019. Your fundraising support will help train phone counsellors, launch and grow our online chat service and expand our volunteer base and support services to people all over Japan. Due to past support of TELL events and a kind donation from Morrison & Foerester the TELL Lifeline will initiate its first 24 hour online chat shift this World Suicide Prevention Day, September 10th. This will then proceed each and every Saturday. Thank you to everyone for their support in helping hit this milestone.
