To Write Love On Her Arms Offers Teens In Need Support

We talk alot these days about teens using social networks and worry as adults about what teens are doing while on social networks and about the people they are meeting and friending. This story is touching, inspiring and a great example of what teens are capable of creating and how motivated they can be to support their friends and other teens who they relate to.

This is a quote from the website of To Write Love On Her Arms.

“To Write Love on Her Arms began in Orlando, FL in February 2006 as a (written) story, the true story of five days spent with a friend who was denied entry into a drug treatment center. The story was a look at those five days, and the t-shirts were printed and sold initially as a way to pay for our friend’s treatment.”

To Write Love on Her Arms has become a non profit movement/organization dedicated to presenting hope and help to those who are facing addiction, depression, struggling with suicide and self injury. The movement includes social networking,  blogging, concerts, speaking engagements and is now looking in the direction of counseling scholarships to educate people who can then work with teens and support friends in need.  The organization has a staff of twelve that answer questions and emails through social networking sites such as MySpace and through email.

For those who would like to get involved and support the organization you can click and be directed to their website.
