I Kept Living On Purpose!
I love to share what's going on and ways we can participate, collaborate, volunteer, donate, you get it. I'm living and sharing on purpose! -And so... I kept living to write again.
Saturday, September 10th is World Suicide Prevention day. I first learned of this important day back in 2011. A man near my job was thinking about jumping from the Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center. Click here to read that archive.

Since writing that post years ago I've become passionate about this world health issue. I've also become a participant in Cycling the Globe for Suicide Prevention. It's an initiative by the International Association for Suicide Prevention to 'collectively cycle the circumference of the globe, 40,075 km or 24,900 miles, and to have participants cycling on every continent. You can cycle at home, in the gym or outdoors. This activity is all about the global community spreading awareness of the importance of suicide prevention. This year's theme for World Suicide Prevention Day is Connect. Communicate. Care.' Join me in this initiative.
One day while looking through citylimits.org I found an ad about an event by TWLOHA TO Write Love On Her Arms. It's an inspiring organization that creatively educates on suicide prevention by founder Jamie Tworkowski . He was helping a friend in order to write love on her arms and now helps so many more across the world.
Join their campaign with the hastag #ikeptliving. You can even donate for treatment and recovery on their site.
Participate in your own way this year. If you're in New York this weekend I invite you to join me Saturday, September 10th to cycle the globe by way of Brooklyn! Click here to register and for more information.
