Thank You for Making Some Noise

Screenshot 2014-05-09 17.29.55About 35 teens commit suicide in BC every year. This is only the tip of the iceberg in terms of mental health dysfunction with 12% of mainstream BC youth contemplating suicide as an option to their pain and 5% attempting.

For the second year in a row we chose NEED2 as our charity sponsor.

NEED2 works every day to actively prevent suicide through an online portal for youth in crisis ( and through presentations in the schools. We run up against the stigma surrounding suicide so frequently we want to make a noise about it and shake things up.

Thank you for making some LOTS of noise and helping NEED2 raise funds for a very important cause.
