November 13th is the 2nd Annual To Write Love on Her Arms Day. It’s simple, write LOVE on your arm tomorrow and hopefully encourage someone who may be handling a tough situation.
This is actually a variation on what the actual TWLOHA organization does. If you’re unfamiliar though, I hope this clears it up just a bit:
To Write Love on Her Arms is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery.
Tomorrow (or today whenever you’re reading this) is a Facebook event inspired by the TWLOHA movement. Pain, depression, cutting, self-abuse are all real issues facing teens today. Help, hope, treatment, love, community are all real solutions that are just as powerful. Hopefully, tomorrow can instigate a hopeful, caring conversation with someone that may not know where else to turn.
I hope I’m not the only one I see tomorrow. If you participate, I’ll have a later post for stories and pictures. Please document your day!
