In the United States, a person dies by suicide every 13.7 minutes claiming more than 38,000 lives each year (AFSP, 2014). In order to spread awareness for suicide prevention, we honor the late Robin Williams with the iconic #DoubtfireFace. We encourage everyone to submit a video and say “HELLLLOOO” to suicide prevention.
1. Create your own Doubtfire Face video with the hashtags #doubtfireface #sayhellotosucideprevention. Nominate others to do the same.
2. Donate what you can to our official American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Doubtfire Face team to help us reach our goal of $500,000.
3. Post your video to our official facebook page so we can share it with the world.
Be creative! Nominees have used whipped cream, shaving cream, and even sour cream!
Alike to the other fundraising trends navigating the Internet, be sure to shout out nominees of your choice, tag them in your video, and hashtag #DoubtfireFace #SayHelloToSuicidePrevention, and #RobinWilliams.
Our goal is not only to celebrate Robin Williams, but to raise money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention! Please make your videos, donate to our campaign, and say "Hello" to suicide prevention!
