To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA)

I found this site several months ago after reading about the organization being considered for one of Chase Charities $100,000 awards (they won one too).

They do so many good things that I don't know where to start. The site has all kinds of really great stuff to just read and do, like news, music, blogs, facts, quotes and an online store, along with links for social networking with them.

In 2010 TWLOHA, together with The Kristin Brooks Hope Center (http://www.Hopeline.com ) and PostSecret (http://www.PostSecret.com ) are hoping to launch their latest effort - something I'm sure we all can appreciate. It's called IMAlive - a virtual crisis intervention network that will consist of volunteers who are all trained and certified (actually they're still recruiting volunteers as I type this).

http://www.pickupthephone.org/IMAlive/home.php

This is going to be the FIRST live online crisis network with 100% of its staff certified and trained in crisis intervention.

TWLOHA also has what's known as a "Street Team", which I recently joined, because it's a way to help the org for those of us with little or no cash to spare, yet still want to show support. One of the things I've done is put their background and logo on my Twitter profile, but there are other things too (if that is of any interest).

Even if you aren't in need of, or interested in, the other pages & links, I still think a lot of you might really like the TWLOHA site.

You betcha! I hope you like it. The TWLOHA site also has a built in music player loaded w/ tracks from some great indie bands. The blogs are really good, and the story, the original reason TWLOHA was formed is really moving. If you decide to check them out, let me know what you think.

I follow this group on Facebook. Not only are they awesomely inspiring to be so young to combat the stigma and support, but they reach out daily...with inspiring quotes and stories.

I cannot wait until the day we see a chapter of this group on EVERY college and high school campus!
