On the video, TWLOHA founder Jamie Tworkowski shares: “We love that this new video is a mix of people from all over-actors, artists, parents, nurses, students, and musicians all using their voices to tell the world why tomorrow needs them. Our hope is to encourage each viewer to believe that life is worth living. Our hope is to prevent suicide.“
