The Out of the Darkness Overnight is a fundraising walk of 16-18 miles throughout the night, designed to raise funds and make a bold statement to bring the issue of suicide out into the light. The Overnight is organized by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), the leading national not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy, and to reaching out to people with mental disorders and those impacted by suicide.
I am walking with Taylor (and anyone else who may want to join us- just let me know) this year at the Philly Out of Darkness Overnight Walk.
Each walker is required to raise a minimum of $1,000. I have until June to do this. Every little bit helps!!
- EVERY $10 – AFSP distributes one Depression and Bipolar Awareness educational program (DVD).
- EVERY $100: AFSP educates a mental health professional or primary care physician about the warning signs of suicide. Each of them in turn, will reach and inform hundreds - maybe thousands – of people.
- EVERY $500: trains a new Survivor of Suicide support group facilitator. Each new facilitator will bring group members together with other survivors. Together, they will see that they are not alone.
Please visit my page and donate if you can!! It’s for a great cause and something that is also personally very important to me!
There is also a badge on my sidebar to donate. Even if you can’t donate, spread this around… like I said, every little bit counts!
