At the end of July, I posted some of my whimsical mixed media art on etsy, in order to raise money for suicide prevention and awareness. Priced at just $5 each, $1 of each sale will go towards suicide prevention. For every 10 items sold, I will donate $10 to organizations that are doing good work to support this important cause.
In August we made our first donation to To Write Love On Her Arms. TWLOHA is a nonprofit dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. "TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire, and invest directly into treatment and recovery."
I will continue to update this page, as additional donations are made:
On 10/12/20 we made a donation to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
On 9/16/20 we made a donation to the American Association of Suicidology.
On 9/24/20 we made a donation to the Contra Costs County Crisis Center.
On 10/25/20 to Suicide Awareness Voices of Education (SAVE).
On 10/26/20 to 2020 Moms.
On 10/28/20 to The Trevor Project.
Lighting Up the Sky encourages creativity in raising money for suicide prevention. I have been to bowling events, comedy nights, and many walks and other fundraisers. I've purchased stickers and jewelry and artwork. Purchase something, be a patron, participate in an event - or come up with your own ideas!
