As some of you may or may not know, my birthday is coming up this Sunday. That's right, the big 19 on the 19th! Instead of simply ruining my diet with some cake, I decided to but my special day to good use with the help of Facebook.
Little did I know, Facebook has added a feature to the platform that allows you to endorse and help raise money for a charity of your choice for the month leading up to your birthday. Such a beautiful feature, in my personal opinion, and I'll absolutely be doing this annually!
This year, with International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day being on November 18th, I decided to help raise money for the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention. This foundation's mission hits a little too close to home, and I feel isn't given the attention it deserves. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem, and effects millions each year. And while I realize my outreach is minimal, every little bit helps to a non-profit like this. Every bit donated is a gift that can save lives and fill an empty heart with hope.
Check out my birthday fundraiser on Facebook. Give it a share, help spread the world, help save a life. ❤️

Also, feel free to browse around the AFSP's website. This is a subject we could all use a little more knowledge on. Check it out at http://afsp.org.
As per usual, I'll be posting here with updates as they come! I've got a few things waiting in the queue, so stay tuned. Until then, feel free to check out my social media for live updates from yours truly.
That's all for now! x
