Help Launch an Online Crisis Network

Hello again!

Today is Friday and we’re feeling the good vibrations at YourCause.com.  Are you? We hope so!

 Today is also the last day for the Chase Community Giving campaign, where our number one linked charity on YourCause.com competes against 100 other charities to win 1 million dollars. 

We don’t like to play favorites with charities but, like I said, they are our number one linked charity and we definitely want to support them!

They’re called: To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA).  It’s a mouthful, I know, but these guys are amazing.  In a little less than a week their street team set up 249 cause pages on our site!  They really have the passion and backbone to make their vision and mission unfold.  Let me tell you a bit about them….

TWLOHA is a nonprofit movement dedicated to presenting hope and help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide.  TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire and invest into treatment and recovery.

And, like I said, they are competing to win a 1 million grant by Chase Bank.  With this grant they wish to launch an online crisis program, which I think is just brilliant.  Most people don’t feel as comfortable having to talk to someone on the phone about their troubles and, in this techno-forward world where social media networks seem to be the IV drip of society, I think online help is the right step in solution.

TWLOHA plans to launch “IMAlive” that will allow crisis responders to reach millions of people through custom-built instant messaging service. 

So, support TWLOHA.  Currently in third place, they need your help!

And don’t forget to check them out at YourCause.com!
