BENEFITING: To Write Love on Her Arms
EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2015
TWLOHA is a non-profit dedicated to raising awareness of normally stigmatized mental health conditions such as addiction, depression, self-injury, and suicide; for all too long these topics have been hidden away by media and treated as something to be ashamed of. The truth is, around 9% of Americans are diagnosed with major depressive disorder, with many more never even seeking the help that would diagnose and treat them. Money raised will go to TWLOHA -- To Write Love on Her Arms -- whose guiding principle is that you were created to love and be loved. In their -- and my -- eyes, that message goes to everyone, regardless of age, gender, or walks of life. It's time to start reaching out, giving a hand to someone who's struggling and may not even realize it. It's time to raise awareness and hope, and no start is too small.
