Friends, we're almost there! I have 3 days and $600 to raise to help raise awareness of mental illness, get help to people who need it, and advocate for better laws and benefits.

Please donate - even the price of a latte, a beer or a burrito makes a different.

Hi everyone - one week to go, and I'm halfway to my fundraising goals for AFSA's Out of the Darkness walk.

Here's why I'm raising funds

By walking in the Out of the Darkness Community Walks to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), you will be walking with thousands of people nationwide to raise money for AFSP's vital research and education programs to prevent suicide and save lives, increase national awareness about depression and suicide, advocate for mental health issues, and assist survivors of suicide loss.

If you can't donate, please repost this notice!

thanks so much -

Lorelei

Hello everyone - just 4 more days until I do the Out of Darkness Walk. For those of you who have generously supported me, thank you. For those of you who haven't, please consider giving whatever you can. I'm halfway to my goal!

If you can't donate at this time, please share this message to others.

I am lucky enough to never have lost a loved one to suicide. My family is not so lucky. My husband will never meet two uncles who were greatly loved; my daughter will miss two grand-uncles to spoil her.

Suicide rates have started to rise in the elderly, as they face impending poverty, illness and depression, without access to good care.

Your donation is 100% tax deductible, of course, and secure online.

Hello all my circles!

In two weeks, I'll be walking to raise money for suicide prevention.

I am lucky enough to never have lost a loved one to suicide.

I have sat through many tearful nights, conversations with people who were at their wits end, worrying when no phone call came to say that they were all right. I know you've all worried, and I hope it all came out.

Mental health care is not accessible for many people, especially those in crisis. Some individuals turn their rage outward before ending their own lives. Others only harm themselves, leaving a wake of grieving family and friends.

Suicide rates have started to rise in the elderly, as they face impending poverty, illness and depression, without access to good care.

Please consider making a tax deductible donation, no matter how small. Your $5-10 dollars can help save a life.

Thank you -

Lorelei

PS If you think this is a worthy cause, please signal boost - tweet, repost, blog, etc etc. thank you again!
