To Write Love on Her Arms

I was playing around on Smith the other day when I saw something called To Write Love on Her Arms. The sentence itself was so beautiful that I had to see what it was all about.

To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) was started by a small group of people who were trying to help a friend who was suffering from an addiction. From there it took off and has become a huge non-profit group supporting those in need of assistance with addiction, depression, and suicidal tendencies.

Everyone knows someone who's suffered through one of these things. You might know more than one person, maybe a few even. Sometimes they need help and don't know where to turn. Sometimes they can't afford the help they need. Sometimes they just need some information. This site is dedicated to all of those times.

There is a multitude of ways for you to get involved, from donating money to buying one of their very cool shirts. Check out all of your options here.

The blog in itself is also pretty interesting. I enjoyed the most recent post, Welcome to Midnight.

If you or someone you know is in need of help, please go to this site. It could make all the difference in the world.

Here is an excerpt from their site on what their vision is:

To Write Love on Her Arms is a non-profit movement 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.
The vision is that we actually believe these things…
You were created to love and be loved.  You were meant to live life in relationship with other people, to know and be known. You need to know that your story is important and that you're part of a bigger story.  You need to know that your life matters.
We live in a difficult world, a broken world.  My friend Byron is very smart - he says that life is hard for most people most of the time.  We believe that everyone can relate to pain, that all of us live with questions, and all of us get stuck in moments.  You need to know that you're not alone in the places you feel stuck.
