We’ll see you tomorrow.
There is a lie we tend to believe which is that we can’t talk about issues such as depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. We’ve learned that two out of three people who struggle with depression never get help for it. Our charity partner for the first event of 2020 began as an attempt to help one person see the next day, and the day after that.
Jamie Tworkowski sold shirts from a box to help a struggling friend pay for the cost of a treatment center. He posted his experiences online as a story shortly thereafter…and the title of the story was “To Write Love On Her Arms”.
We are honored — and eager — to tell the world that our first charity partner of 2020 is TWLOHA.
TWLOHA‘s story spread in a wave of person-to-person connections, of visibility and acknowledgement, of love and of hope. Their goal is for people to get the help they need and deserve, by connecting people to local mental health resources, and providing scholarships so they can receive counseling and professional help. Their dream is to live in a world where people everywhere talk openly and honestly about mental health. Where it’s okay to ask for help.
Our support of TWLOHA will fund counseling sessions to support people struggling with self-harm and suicidal ideation and give them the tools to keep going.
To make certain that everyone knows that YOU MAKE TODAY BETTER.
Join us on Saturday, January 18 at noon Eastern when we reveal the theme and medal for the new event, and start crossing hundreds upon thousands of virtual miles for TWLOHA…and for the ones we love.
