Here's hoping you will sponsor me for Samaritans Suicide Prevention Center's Walkathon Sept. 24, 2017, my fave non-profit that I've worked with for 20 years. All donations are tax deductible and are matched by thousands of hours donated by our 100+ volunteers annually who answer the 80,000 calls on the Hotline. All amounts, great and small are appreciated. Spread the peace and love and dollars around! Thank you!!! Fiodhna
There are more suicides than homicides and car accidents combined in NYC and one in 10 of our High School students report attempting suicide. 1 out of 5 Americans experience depression each year! Though most of us know someone who struggles with problems related to mental health, trauma or a significant loss, very few people make charitable donations to prevent suicide.
Samaritans is NYC's only community-based organization solely devoted to preventing suicide. Samaritans operates NYC's 24-hour suicide hotline, support groups that provide solace to those touched by suicide, and education programs that teach health providers how to help those who are depressed and in crisis.
