Raising Funds (and AWARENESS) - AFSP

This fall, which will be my FIFTH year participating and fundraising, I will be joining with thousands of people nationwide to walk in AFSP's San Diego Walk: Out of the Darkness Community Walk to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. I would appreciate any support that you give me for this worthwhile cause.


The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is at the forefront of research, education and prevention initiatives designed to reduce loss of life from suicide. With more than 38,000 lives lost each year in the U.S. and over one million worldwide, the importance of AFSP's mission has never been greater, nor our work more urgent.


I am actually already over 50% of the way to my fundraising goal. Over the past 5 events I have helped to raise over $4,000 for the AFSP and am grateful for the generosity of my friends and family. I would LOVE it if you would consider supporting my participation in this event. Any contribution will help the work of AFSP, and all donations are 100% tax deductible.

Donating online is safe and easy! You literally just need to click the "MAKE A DONATION!" button in the image below, or go to my participant page here and click the "DONATE NOW" option at the top of the page. 

Thanks in advance for considering any type of giving (whether it is monetary, participating in a walk near you, volunteering your time at an event, or just spreading the word about this amazing organization)!!
