For anyone who knows where the title of this post is from, good for you! :) I recently discovered Crowdrise, an online fundraising website. You can sign up, create your own pages to raise money for charities of your choosing, or join a team already in progress of reaching a charity goal.
I joined the movement for To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA). I've known about TWLOHA for a few years now, and fully support what they are striving to achieve. They're raising awareness for people suffering from depression, self-injury, addiction, and suicide. They're campaign slogan is "Love is the Movement"... which is the best way to describe what needs to happen. So many people feel that they are alone in this world, and what they need is to know that they are loved.
My own mantra (adapted from the TWLOHA movement) is "Love and be Loved" which is pretty strong. We all know people suffering, and we're all in this together. I've joined the movement, and would love to help raise awareness with anyone and everyone's help.
If you are able, and if this moved you, or at least intrigued you, I urge you to visit my fundraising page here:
There are tons of projects, charities, and groups raising money for any and every cause on this site! Do what moves you...
The more we know, the better we are. We can make a difference, we just need to do it together.
