Asking for support

Postby meowth » Thu Jan 06, 2011 3:27 am

Hi everyone,

I haven't posted here since the forum change, but I was hoping you guys could help me out. My name's Caroline, I'm 20 and am in my 3rd year at UCI. My mom hanged herself in our backyard on April 8. I'm running a marathon in 2.5 months in her honor to raise money for AFSP and am halfway at my goal. If you could donate 1-5 dollars, I'd be so very happy.

Thank you in advance! Please share the link with family and friends,
Caroline

Sam,
AFSP is the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. They offer support and group meetings here in the
US for people who've lost a loved one to suicide. You can go to their website--there is a lot of good information
for those of us who've lost someone. Their site is http://www.afsp.org

Caroline, I think it's great that you're running a marathon......did you post the link for people to donate?
I don't see it.
