Melbourne, FL – September 18, 2018 – Nonprofit To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) has wrapped their 7th annual campaign to honor World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) and National Suicide Prevention Week (NSPW). With the help of supporters from around the world, the organization was able to raise more than $200k for treatment and recovery, surpassing their initial goal of $100k, as well as their follow up goals of $150k and $175k. Over 3600 people donated to this year’s “Tomorrow Needs You” campaign, in addition to the sale of 4655 World Suicide Prevention Day packs. The money raised will help sponsor nearly 4000 counseling sessions and connect 55,000 people to local mental health resources.
TWLOHA founder Jamie Tworkowski shares: “We’re so grateful to everyone who supported our World Suicide Prevention Day campaign. The money raised will allow us to help thousands of people. Even though the campaign has officially ended, we remain committed to bringing a message of hope to folks everywhere.
TWLOHA recently shared an inspiring new video featuring actors Chris Sullivan (from This Is Us) and Jaina Lee Ortiz (from Station 19), country music star Hunter Hayes, who raised $23,000, writer/artist Morgan Harper Nichols, and singer/songwriter Matt Wertz, along with a number of clips submitted by TWLOHA supporters from around the world.
