TWLOHA Announces #into21 Campaign & #GivingTuesday Live Conversations

To Write Love on Her Arms announces its #into21 campaign today in honor of #GivingTuesday. The goal of the campaign is to raise $175k by December 31st in hopes that each gift will make it possible for TWLOHA to reach new communities, share more stories, and connect thousands of people to the help they need and deserve in the new year.
#GivingTuesday (Dec. 1) is known as an international day of generosity and launches the giving season. The organization will also host two special live events, streaming via FacebookTwitch, and YouTube at 11am ET and 7pm ET. The goal is to invite people to share why mental health matters to them, what has brought them hope this year, and the impact the movement had in 2020. To launch the campaign, TWLOHA has a goal to raise $10k on this day though TWLOHA’s Facebook Fundraiser here: www.facebook.com/donate/1269411090082919.
Sharing why this campaign matters, Co-Executive Director Lindsay Kolsch said “We know this year has turned everyone’s world upside down. We’re still in the middle of a pandemic and its impact on our collective and individual mental health is staggering. We always look at this campaign as a moment to hold on to the things we believe are needed the most. This year is no different, it’s a chance to say that hope lives on.”
To Write Love on Her Arms is a non-profit dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide.

Since its start in 2006, TWLOHA has donated over $2.6 million directly into treatment and recovery and answered over 210,000 emails from over 100 countries.
