To Write Love On Her Arms
Summer is finally upon us, and as we look around, the world we live in has changed. Things have slowed over the last couple of months, and as stressful and frightening it may have gotten it has reminded us to be mindful of everything and everyone around us. One should enjoy the simple pleasures and be thoughtful and intentional in the way you choose to live. A quote that we recently came across and is fitting for this time, “The secret of happiness, you see, is not found in seeking more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.” – Socrates.
Suggestions From Our Community
This month the Crystal Council asked our family of followers to suggest charities that are close to their hearts that we may bring awareness to and profile with our monthly charity stone. The response was heartfelt and overwhelming and moving forward these are the charities that you will see being featured moving forward. The Crystal Council is a family that every new follower becomes a part of, we strive to continue our journey together and make a difference.
To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA) is a nonprofit organization that was founded in March 2006 by Jamie Tworkowski and became an official nonprofit in 2007. He wrote about the 5 days he spent with a friend that was waiting to enter a treatment facility that struggled with addiction, depression, self-injury, and attempted suicide. From that experience, a movement had begun. TWLOHA’s mission is to give hope and find help for those struggling from addiction, depression, self-injury, and attempted suicide. It invests directly into treatment and recovery and exists to encourage, inform, and inspire. Please visit their website twloha.com
