KittyRoo Walks Again

Dis b frum our good good frend, KittyRoo.  Shii haz walked fur suicide prevention fur menny years.  I thank her fur ebbree step.  

Dear Friends, family, and concerned acquaintances,

I will be walking again in the Overnight, a 16+ mile trek,  from dusk until dawn, through the streets of NYC in support of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

My personal fundraising goal is $1,250.00. I would appreciate any support that you give me for this worthwhile cause.

I myself have lived with some level of depression all my adult life, and many of my friends live with mental illnesses.   I have friends in many places, and we gather in an online community to talk, laugh, bitch, and cry together.  Several years ago I had the fright and delight of helping to save one of these friends who had cried out after taking an overdose of pills.  We were able to find her address and send police for a wellness check, and they got her to the hospital in time.  Since then I have met her in person and the hug we shared was soul-touching.

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 40,000 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 hope you will consider supporting my participation in this event. Any contribution will help the work of AFSP. Checks should be made payable to AFSP and are 100% tax deductible.

Thank you for considering this request for your support. If you have any questions about the Out of the Darkness Overnight or AFSP do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

Anne Gale (aka KittyRoo)
