Join Me in Supporting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
I lost my brother, Louie, to Suicide in 2005. Over the past 4 years I have become very involved with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Today Suicide is the #10 Leading Cause of Death in America. Yet it remains preventable. The CDC released their study a few weeks ago which showed suicides have increased by 30% in the past decade. AFSP is on the forefront for education, prevention and research. 84.3 cents of every dollar raised goes to these 3 areas. I need your help so we can reduce SUICIDE by 20% by 2025.
That's why I am joining the community of 250k people walking in hundreds of cities across the country to fight suicide in an Out of the Darkness Walk.
My personal fundraising goal is $10,000. I would appreciate any support that you give me for this worthwhile cause.
Your tax-deductible contribution will support the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), the leader in the fight against suicide. AFSP funds research, offers educational programs, advocates for public policy, and provides support to those affected by suicide.
