Tuesday, September 10th was National Suicide awareness day and September is national Suicide awareness month. When I started making and selling cookies I wanted some of my profits to go towards an organization and I choose one that is very close to my heart.
To Write Love On Her Arms is a non profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people who struggle with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. Thier compaign this year is "You Make Today Better"
"Even now, you are enough.Even now, your story is important.Even now, you are worthy of love.The pain you feel is not a burden.The heaviness you carry does not need to be a secret.All that you are right now is welcome here.
And no matter the circumstances,
we believe that you make today better." - TWLOHA
Not only have I and do struggle with some some of the listed struggles - I know some close family and friends who have or do struggle too. (You are not alone.) This is something I do not take lightly and hope to bravely shed light in an area that might be scary and overwhelming.
I am going to be selling cookies to help raise money to TWLOHA - all profits will go to this organization.
Maybe you would like to donate but not buy cookies and you can do so here!
Each dollars helps those who need help but don’t know where to start. You do matter and you do make today better! And let’s shine light in the darkness!
