The non-profit organization, To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) has announced that they have partnered with Scary Kids Scaring Kids to help bring life-changing conversations about mental health as well as distribute information about available resources to audiences across the west coast. In addition to a collaborative t-shirt, with all proceeds benefiting TWLOHA, the organization will have an on-site presence at each date of the band’s upcoming The City Sleeps In Flames 15th Anniversary Tour. The west coast run kicks off on January 13th.
The upcoming tour marks Scary Kids Scaring Kids’ first live shows in nearly a decade, and the band is excited to welcome vocalist and close friend Cove Reber (Saosin, Dead American) to the stage as they celebrate their debut album.
TWLOHA recently wrapped up their 8th annual campaign to honour World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10) and National Suicide Prevention Week (September 8 – September 14). With the help of supports from around the world, the organization was able to raise more than $250k for treatment and recovery, surpassing their initial goal of $150k.
Over 5,700 people donated to this year’s “You Make Today Better” campaign, in addition to the sale of over 4,600 World Suicide Prevention Day packs. The money raised will help sponsor over 4,100 counseling sessions and fund 60,000 FIND HELP searches.
Since its start in 2006, TWLOHA has donated over $2.5 million directly into treatment, has responded to over 210,000 messages from over 100 countries, and traveled more than 3.8 million miles to meet people face-to-face at nearly 3,000 events. Each month, they connect with 5 million people online through social media and their FIND HELP Tool fields 5,000 searches made by people seeking affordable, local mental health resources.
TWLOHA has also recruited Louis Tomlinson for the Live Life Love concert line up. The Kill My MInd singer/songwriter joins Lizzo, Jon Bellion, Chelsea Cutler and Lovelytheband to raise funds for the charity. Live Life Love is a concert to raise awareness of suicide prevention, the gig will take place on November 20 at the Municipal Auditorium in Nashville.
