Last Thursday, our family lost a dear friend to suicide. He was my daughter’s boyfriend for over a year, and they loved each other greatly.
While I cannot do anything to help him, I am walking to raise funds that may be able to help prevent another horrible loss in the future. Even one life saved will be worth all the effort!
On this Sunday, November 7, 2010, I will be joining with thousands of people nationwide to walk in AFSP’s Alabama WalkOut of the Darkness Community Walk to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. I would appreciate any support that you give me for this worthwhile cause.
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is at the forefront of research, education and prevention initiatives designed to reduce loss of life from suicide. With more than 33,000 lives lost each year in the U.S. and over one million worldwide, the importance of AFSP’s mission has never been greater, nor our work more urgent.
I hope you will consider supporting my participation in this event. Any contribution will help the work of AFSP, and all donations are 100% tax deductible.
