Join Me in Supporting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

Hello Everyone -

As many of you know, I lost my amazing brother, Mark Revers, to suicide, in 2014.  It was a devastating death for all of us to recover from.  Due to Mark's death, I have become huge supporter of the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention (AFSP).  They are a non-for profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing Suicide, through research, education and advocacy, and reaching  out to people with mental disorders and those impacted by Suicide.  As much as I wish AFSP was not part of our lives due to being touched directly by Suicide, I am so proud to raise money and offer support to this outstanding organization.

On September 22nd, we walk with thousands of Chicagoan's, who have also been touched by Suicide, to raise awareness among the streets of Chicago.  We walk in numbers to give strength to each other as well as let others know we are here.  Please join my family and I on our walk this year by joining our team,"Forever Mark". and please give to our cause.  Almost all of us have people in our lives with Mental Illness' or have known others who have died by Suicide.  As a collective society we can help erase the stigma associated with Mental Illness and Suicide, as well as raise research and education dollars that will make a difference to those that are suffering.

Once again, Joe and I will be matching dollar for dollar the first $10,000 that is raised, to help meet my lofty goal of $30,000 this year.  Please join us in this effort by hitting the "Donate" button at the top of the page.  If anything else, we all know giving feels good.

Thank you so much for your consideration and support!  I cannot tell you enough how much I appreciate it.
