TWLOHA Announces “Tomorrow Needs You”

Melbourne, Fla. – August 14, 2018 – The nonprofit To Write Love on Her Arms just launched its 7th annual campaign to honor World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10) and National Suicide Prevention Week (September 9 – September 15). This year’s campaign is called ” Tomorrow Needs You.”

According to the World Health Organization, 800,000 people die by suicide globally each year. That’s one person every 40 seconds. Additionally, the CDC recently reported that as of 2016, the suicide rate in the United States has risen 25% over the last 20 years.

TWLOHA Founder Jamie Tworkoswki shared: “World Suicide Prevention Day has become the most important day of the year for TWLOHA. This campaign is our biggest and best attempt not only to bring a message of hope and encouragement to folks all over, but also to raise money for people to get the help they need and deserve.

Nancy Lublin, CEO of Crisis Text Line said: “This campaign is all about empowering people to reach out for help and share their experiences. It’s so reflective of who To Write Love on Her Arms is-warm and empathetic, focused on bringing out the best in people.”

People can participate in this year’s campaign by purchasing the organization’s World Suicide Prevention Day pack, joining the conversation on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook using #TomorrowNeedsYou, #WSPD18, and by donating to their  fundraising campaign. TWLOHA has set a goal to raise $100,000 to provide counseling scholarships and to help connect thousands of people to local mental health resources.

 

To Write Love on Her Arms is a nonprofit dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. It exists to encourage, inform, inspire, and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery. Since its start in 2006, TWLOHA has donated over $2.1 million directly into treatment and recovery and answered over 210,000 messages from over 100 countries.

Heart Camp with Jamie Tworkowski

To Write Love on Her Arms Founder 

Jamie Tworkowski

Launches HEART CAMP Workshops

o Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) founder and New York Times best-selling author Jamie Tworkowski has announced a new project he is calling HEART CAMP.

HEART CAMP will be a two-day workshop led by Jamie, each a gathering of 40 attendees. Over the two days, Jamie will be sharing his stories, experiences, and passions. Topics will include authenticity, writing, mental health, starting things that matter, and more. Attendees will be invited to give input on what is discussed at each workshop, and much of the event will be Q&A. With the first HEART CAMP selling out in a week, a second workshop has been added.

On HEART CAMP, Jamie states:

“I really enjoy being able to connect with people, and my hope is that folks walk away feeling encouraged. The challenge tends to be time. It can be difficult to give a question the answer it deserves in one minute or two tweets. There’s almost always a line of people or a curfew or a plane to catch.

 

“HEART CAMP was born from this idea: What if instead of one minute, we had two days? What would it look like to get a small group of people together, to share everything I’ve learned and everything I’m passionate about? What if folks were invited deep inside my work and deep inside my story, into not only the successes but the failures as well? Could I provide language and framework and ideas to help people start movements and chase dreams?”

 

HEART CAMP has two upcoming workshops scheduled: January 14 & 15, 2018 (SOLD OUT), and February 11 & 12, 2018. They will be hosted at the Crowne Plaza Melbourne Oceanfront in Indialantic, Florida.

To Benefit Houston 

Recovery

September 5th Houston, TX House of Blues Show Is On As Planned!

After the devastating storm that struck Texas, SWITCHFOOT and LIFEHOUSE wanted to do something together to give back and wrote a brand new song titled, “Shine Like Gold,” which exclusively premiered on People.com. All proceeds from “Shine Like Gold” will be donated to aid Houston’s recovery in partnership with Food for the Hungry. SWITCHFOOT and LIFEHOUSE are currently touring with each other for the first time ever on the “Looking For Summer” Tour. The bands will collectively be performing the song together at the September 5th House of Blues show in Houston, Texas.

 

On the new song and upcoming Houston show, Jon Foreman shares: “Jason and I had always talked about writing a song together. When it finally happened, ‘Shine Like Gold’ became a song about everyday heroes fighting their way through the darkness toward the light. On the day we recorded the song, Hurricane Harvey began wreaking havoc in Texas. Sometimes you don’t know what a song is for until after its written. In this case it became crystal clear. As we watched our friends and family in Texas struggle through the aftermath of the hurricane, we knew exactly what we had to do. We LOVE Houston. Houston is resilient and will rebuild. We’re honored to be in Houston next Tuesday to bring hope and healing the best way we know how.”

On “Shine Like Gold” and the upcoming Houston show, LIFEHOUSE’s Jason Wade said: “We can’t imagine what everyone is going through right now in Houston, but they’ve all been in our thoughts and prayers. We look forward to playing this show, standing alongside this amazing city and doing everything in our power to help. Jon and I started writing “Shine Like Gold” at the beginning of this tour, but it wasn’t until we recorded it in Nashville that we really knew what it was about. Seeing all of these amazing individuals who’ve sacrifice for their neighbors, and stepped up in the face of extreme hardship has been so inspiring. This song is for them. All of the proceeds from this song are going to Houston for the unsung heroes that do the right thing when no one is watching. All the love.”

 

Formed in San Diego in 1996, SWITCHFOOT is Jon Foreman (vocals, guitar), Tim Foreman (bass), Jerome Fontamillas (keyboard, guitar), Drew Shirley (guitar), and Chad Butler (drums). Since their start, the band has sold over 5.7 million copies worldwide of their first nine studio albums (including their 2003 double-platinum breakthrough The Beautiful Letdown and 2009’s Grammy Award-winning Hello Hurricane), racked up a string of Alternative radio hit singles, and performed sold-out world tours with over 4 million concert tickets worldwide.

 

SWITCHFOOT released their latest album, Where The Light Shines Through, on July 8th, 2016 via Vanguard Records. Where The Light Shines Through is the band’s tenth album and the first since 2014’s highly acclaimed Fading West. The album was self-produced in collaboration with John Fields, who helmed the multi-platinum breakthrough The Beautiful Letdown.

 

Beyond their career achievements, SWITCHFOOT has also been active in a variety of philanthropic efforts, raising over a million dollars to aid kids in their community through the band’s own Bro-Am Foundation, a long-running annual benefit surf contest and concert that’s held every summer in Encinitas, CA. $1 of every ticket sale will be donated to SWITCHFOOT’s BRO-AM Foundation providing services to underprivileged and disadvantaged youth. They’ve also maintained a deep commitment to a variety of humanitarian causes, lending their support to such worthy organizations as CURE International, DATA, the ONE Campaign, Habitat for Humanity, Invisible Children, and To Write Love on Her Arms.

Multi-platinum award-winning rock band LIFEHOUSE recently released their first hits compilation, LIFEHOUSE: Greatest Hits, on CD and all digital retailers. The 18-track selection will include a multitude of their chart-topping hits, including “You and Me,” “First Time”, “Halfway Gone,” “Hurricane” and “Hanging by a Moment,” which was the most played radio track of 2001. To mark the release, LIFEHOUSE, which includes Jason Wade (lead vocals, guitar), Bryce Soderberg (bass, vocals) and Ricky Woolstenhulme Jr. (drums, percussion), are co-headlining a U.S. tour with SWITCHFOOT, which will wrap September 10 at the Masonic Auditorium in San Francisco after a show on September 9 at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles (tour dates below). LIFEHOUSE was formed in Los Angeles by singer/songwriter/guitarist Jason Wade, bassist Bryce Soderberg and drummer Rick Woolstenhulme Jr. as Blyss in 1999, attracting the attention of producer Jude Cole. LIFEHOUSE’s music has always been radio-friendly, but the band’s success is as much for lead singer/guitarist Jason Wade’s “sonorous” vocals and spiritual songwriting as it is for the band’s well-honed cohesion as performers. Since 2000, LIFEHOUSE have released seven albums that have cumulatively sold 15 million around the world.
