On #GivingTuesday, To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) launched the #into18 campaign. The goal of the campaign is to raise $100,000 before December 31st. The campaign is anchored by the idea that each gift and donation will help TWLOHA renew the fight to bring a conversation about mental health into unexpected places and spaces. It also gives our supporters and donors a chance to reflect and answer the question about what they want to bring #into18.
In 2017, TWLOHA shared 125 stories on their blog. These honest and vulnerable posts reached 7 million people on their website and on social media each month. They were able to have a presence at 111 events and host conversations in front of 1 million people face to face.
This year they sponsored 2,000 counseling sessions and connected 810,000 people to local mental health resources at more than 111 events. They also went beyond connecting people to local mental health resources by sponsoring 2,000 counseling sessions.
“We are incredibly grateful for all the ways people have participated in this conversation. It seems more urgent than ever to be a source of hope and encouragement. We want to use these funds to dream and plan new ways of reaching people that are hurting. We know this message helps save lives.” said Lindsay Kolsch.
With your help, we will continue to grow our programs into high schools, expand our reach online and in person, and support those on the road to recovery.
