TWLOHA day

November 12, 2009

I can’t believe I didn’t find this sooner.

If you haven’t heard of To Write Love On Her Arms, I’d strongly recommend finding more about this organization that moves to break depression and other such issues out of secrecy and offer hope to those in struggle. And oh to my shame I am covering this a mere day before. So on Friday, November 13th, show your support of those around you who are going through a tough time. Write “Love” on your arms.

What is TWLOHA day?

“To Write Love On Her Arms Day is a day where anyone can write the

words love on their arms, to support those who are fighting against

depression and those who are trying to recovering. On this day, just

write love on your arms, and show it off, other people will ask why

you have love written on your arms, and you tell them you are

supporting to write love on her arms day, and how its benefiting a non

profit organization helping stop depression, and make love the

movement”


Here’s a message from Jamie Tworkowski, founder of TWLOHA:


One thing we want to say is that our desire for this day and in
general is that TWLOHA is meant to be about much more than writing a
word on your arm. Don’t get us wrong – we’re not against that… we
just think it’s important that all of us stay focused on the heart of
the matter, which is what that word (LOVE) means. What does it mean to
love someone? What does it mean to love people who are h
urting? What
does it mean to love yourself? What does it mean to live a life that
runs after hope and help and community? It’s easy to write the word.
It’s another thing entirely to live the life.
Let’s live the life.
