Back in the spring, I hosted my first-ever Stop Suicide Auction to raise funds for The Overnight Walk for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). It was a HUGE success, helping me raise over $3,900, and I walked 17 miles in Washington DC to fight suicide. The fundraising and walk itself was an amazing, life-changing event for me personally, reinforced my passion for this important cause, and inspired me to become even more involved with the AFSP.
In June I joined the AFSP Washington Media Team and have been actively working via social media to raise awareness for suicide prevention and education in our state, tweeting from @AFSP_WA. And we recently started an Instagram account as well at @AFSP_WA. (By the way, please follow us!)
On October 12th, I’m walking in the Seattle Out of the Darkness Walk for the AFSP Washington State Chapter Team. And will be hosting another Stop Suicide Auction to help me raise funds for my walk. (100% of proceeds will go to my Out of the Darkness Walk Fundraising Page!) I’m kicking it off on Wednesday, Sept 25th.
Wonderful businesses are donating products and services for the cause, and I am SO GRATEFUL to each and every one, and will be sharing more info with you as we get closer. But right now I’m in the donation phase and am looking for more products and services to include in this auction.
Would you like to donate a product or service?
If you have a product or service that you would like to donate for the Stop Suicide Auction 2.0, please contact me directly via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to raise even more funds for this vital cause and promote your business via this blog and other social media.
Would you like to donate directly to my fundraising?
If you’d prefer to just donate cash to my walk, I would be so grateful. You can make your tax-deductible donation via credit card or PayPal here: http://afsp.donordrive.com/participant/ccomes
