To Write Love on Her Arms Day is Tomorrow!

To write love on her arms is a non-profit movement aimed at helping those struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide.

The vision includes statements like:
+ You were created to love and be loved
+ Rescue is possible
+ Pain is real but so is hope
+ Community is essential, that people need other people

The goal is to reduce suicide, depression, addiction, and self-injury around the world by encouraging people to seek help towards a better, less destructive end.

The movement began as one person's way to help a friend in Spring of 2006 and has grown into a global movement. The facebook group "To Write Love on Her Arms Day" has over 937,000 members and counting... all working to spread the word so people know there are others out there struggling with similar problems and that there are people supporting them with LOVE.

So join me and thousands of others and write LOVE on your arm tomorrow letting others know that there is hope, that there is support, and that there is love.

This post is dedicated to Jim <3.
