#BlueBloggers Raising the Stakes for #SuicidePrevention

Last week during National Suicide Prevention Week, a fellow blogger Cristi of Motherhood Unadorned dyed her hair blue after raising over $1,600 for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. She’s a survivor of suicide and is very passionate about the cause, so much so she inspired others to join her effort and get blue streaks when she reached her goal. Check out photos of some of the #bluebloggers!

I was also inspired to hear about this cause.  As in our area suicide seems to happen more than one would realize in a small town.

So I’ve decided to help take her team’s suicide prevention fundraising to the next level. As of today, Team Purposeful Practices/Motherhood Unadorned has raised over $2,100. If they reach $5,000 by their Out of the Darkness Walk in Seattle on October 1st  I’m dyeing my hair BLUE too … along with 10 other blogger friends:

So please donate today HERE to any member of the Mother Hood Unadorned team

This is such an important cause. Over 35,000 people in the U.S. alone die each year by suicide, and worldwide it’s estimated at one million lives lost. The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is at the forefront of research, education and prevention initiatives designed to reduce loss of life from suicide.
Your donation is 100% tax deductible and you’ll get me closer to blue! I KNOW you want to see that. Don’t worry, there will be photos.

    What a great cause!  I’ve lost two people to suicide over the last two years.  Discussion is such an important part of preventing it.
