I Need Your Help!

I'd like to think that in the nearly three years I've been blogging I've made something of a connection to some of my readers and fellow bloggers. Now, I need to ask you to take that feeling of friendship out of the digital arena and into real life. This weekend, I'm walking in the Out of the Darkness Overnight Walk to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. This cause is so important to me. I'm not going to go into the scary statistics here--that's all on the website--but I will say that mental illness, which about 95% of patients have when they attempt suicide, is a lot more common than we'd like to think, so it's possible your donation could help someone you know. If you'd like to, please make a donation here. I'm not asking for a huge amount, but I am $260 away from my goal of $1,000. I've gotten donations as small as $10 and as big as $70. Thanks for all your help!
