I know that many of you that read my blog suffer from depression, or bipolar, or any form of mental illness. I know many of you have lost loved ones to suicide. I know many of you know people that are depressed and know people that have had loved ones that have taken their own lives. I also know that many of you are none of the above, but are very compassionate people that read and reply and try to make me feel better, and every single comment I get makes me feel so much better.
Saying the above, I know many of you give to your own community for suicide prevention, but if you don’t I hope you consider giving to this cause. I am involved in the Out of the Darkness Walk for Suicide Prevention which is held by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. This is a nationwide organization that does so many things to help bring awareness to suicide and its prevention. If you click on the link I’m providing, you will be able to see just how much they do for suicide prevention.
We will be walking in Myrtle Beach, SC at The Boardwalk at the Beach on 10-26-13. Our Team is Team Kaitlyn. You don’t have to walk to donate. If any of you can spare a few dollars, it would go a long way to help more people not to suffer the hell it is when you lose someone to suicide and help fight the stigma of suicide so people will feel more willing to seek help.
I can’t bring Kaitlyn back, but maybe I can help raise funds for this cause. Kaitlyn would be very happy that this is going on. Please give if you can. Your donation will go towards helping in suicide prevention all over the USA, not just here in North Carolina. It’s easy to donate online and if you don’t want to do it online, there is a downloadable form you can use to send in a check. Just make sure you write down that it’s for Team Kaitlyn.
Thank you so much. Here is the link to Team Kaitlyn. If this was not such a worthy cause, I would not try to seek money on my blog, but helping people and myself with this is what this blog is all about.
Remember, more people die from suicide in the United States then die in auto accidents and is getting worse by the day.
