In the spirit of Thanksgiving, please consider giving back to my Out of the Darkness Walk fundraising campaign this #GivingTuesday. Net funds raised by the Out of the Darkness Walks benefit the American Foundation For Suicide Prevention (AFSP) and their research, advocacy, education, and outreach programs.

Take part in AFSP's #iGiveBoldly campaign on November 27th - support my Out of the Darkness Walk fundraising journey with a donation.

You can also use your DonorDrive fundraising page to track your progress throughout #GivingTuesday. Using your page as a "home base" will give you a reason to continue to link to it on social networks and will give potential donors a reason to revisit your page.
