Join Me in Supporting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
Thanks for taking a minute to consider my request to support the OUT OF THE DARKNESS WALK and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. I lost my brother, Louie, to suicide in 2005. for the first roughly 10 years after his loss I did not realize how prevelant suicide was in our world. In 2015 we did the walk for the first time and leading up to the walk I started learning more about www.AFSP.org This is an incredible organization. I attended their national conference this year and came away more committed than ever to the goal of reducing the suicide rate by 20% by 2025. My biggest take away has been the effiency of the use of their your resources or in this case your donation. 83 cents of every dollar you donate will go to program and direct impact on education, research and real world impact.
Louie was a larger than life guy and spent 26 years of his life as a volunteer firefighter. He responded to over 20,000 calls for service to our community. Unfortunately his life ended way to short to an awful cause. Please help me and AFSP make an impact.
1. Make a Donation
2. JOIN our TEAM "Friends for Life" as we walk for Louie as well as our high school classmate, Glenn Brengel and Bobby Lighthizer both lost to suicide.
I am sure if you took just 1 minute you would quickly realize you know someone impacted by suicide.
I'm walking in the Out of the Darkness Annapolis Walk to fight suicide and support AFSP's bold goal to reduce the suicide rate 20% by 2025.
