Today, Suicide is the 2nd Leading Cause of Death for 10-35 year olds.
It is Preventable!
Join us, Give 5 to help keep them alive!
Something as simple as Giving 5 will help save lives through the Yellow Ribbon Suicide Prevention Program. Take a look at the simple opportunity to invest in saving lives & raising awareness.
You're invited to Give 5 in three ways beginning with #GivingTuesday.
- Give 5 Minutes - find time once a month to talk about Suicide, Prevention, Why You Are Involved with Yellow Ribbon, How the Ask-4-Help Card works, etc. Just get the conversation going and watch the conversations spread.
Give 5 Social Interactions - Like, Share, Retweet, Comment, or create one of your own. Pick your favorite social network (Yellow Ribbon is currently on Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram) and get the conversations going there too!
- Give $5 - Yes, as little as $5/month makes a big impact. So, pass on a coffee, a meal out, or something to set aside $5 (or more if you’re able) a month to invest in Suicide Prevention.
When you invest with Give 5, over the course of a year you give 60 minutes to talk about suicide, 60 interactions on social media and $60. It may not seem like a lot, but when we come together each Giving 5 we take big strides in the world of prevention and awareness.
