Invites You To Save The Date
For This Year’s HEAVY AND LIGHT
To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) has announced that they will be holding their annual HEAVY AND LIGHT event on April 1st, 2017 at the House of Blues in Orlando, FL. The organization invites everyone to save the date for what promises to be an inspiring evening of songs, conversation, and hope.
On the upcoming event, TWLOHA founder Jamie Tworkowski shares: “HEAVY AND LIGHT is our favorite night of the year. It’s so many of our favorite ingredients under one roof – music, poetry, stories, hope and professional help. The best feedback we ever get is from people who ended up getting help or even choosing to stay alive after attending. That’s the dream and the goal. That’s why we do this.“
To Write Love on Her Arms is a nonprofit dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire, and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery. Since its start in 2006, TWLOHA has donated over $1.8 million directly into treatment and recovery and answered over 200,000 emails from over 100 countries.

Last September, TWLOHA wrapped its 5th annual campaign to honor National Suicide Prevention Week and World Suicide Prevention Day. The organization was overwhelmed by the amount of love and support shown during this year’s campaign, titled “And So I Kept Living,”which, thanks to the help of supporters all over the world, raised more than $99K for treatment and counseling.
In December, TWLOHA launched its “Bring Hope #into17” month-long giving campaign, which raised more than $122K of an initial $100K goal. This money will be used to help TWLOHA bring its message of hope to more people than ever before by enabling them to attend 150 events and festivals across the country, grow their University Chapters program, and more.
