A form letter to send to your friends

Here's 2 Life, Inc. is a nonprofit devoted to wiping out suicide. We are currently working with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) to promote awareness to this ultimate cry for help. Our mission is to bring to light those voices that have been silenced by suicide, a grave issue that plagues our society. To give you an idea of what is happening daily, please allow me to share these numbers with you:

    

What you should know about suicide:

  • The second leading cause of death in ages 25-34

  • The third leading cause of death from ages 15-24

  • The rate of suicide deaths among girls 15-19 reached a 40 year high in recent years 

  • Male suicide deaths are nearly four times the rate of females

  • Among young people, for every suicide death, twenty-five are attempted.

  • Alarming statistics reveal a staggering number of veterans, twenty per day, end their own lives.

 

Our 4th annual Here’s 2 Life celebration will be held again this year to promote suicide awareness and let those who are suffering know that they are loved and they do matter.

 

I am asking you to join us in that effort by donating a short video message to show your care, concern and love to those who may otherwise never know. Together we CAN do something to wipe out suicide!  

 

I am enclosing short samples of video selfie messages that you can do with a camera, or your personal cell phone.

 

            #1.       Hi,

                        This is (Your Name).

If you’re having a bad day, remember there’s always someone who loves you.  If you need someone to talk to, call (suicide life line)

You do matter, and the sun will rise on you tomorrow.

Everyone has dark days.  But you’re not alone.  Tomorrow will get better if you remember that you do matter.  There is love for you and you will find it.  If you need someone to talk with, call (suicide life line).

 

            #3.       Hi,

You can use your own words. Just a short message from your heart.
