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.
