I just got the news that someone I know attempted suicide. It wasn't my friend or one of my family members...but a family member of a friend.
What do you do when you get this news? Well, if you're like me, you choke back the tears and screams in your throat, and you get into action. You don't just sit there. You believe there's a way to meet those who feel hopeless, neglected and abused and somehow, jump start them to believe in themselves and to believe there are better days.
They are so much better than the hopelessness! They are better than their shitty circumstances. They have magic inside to get through their struggle! They just forgot.
Since I've been in that hopeless place too and since, I believe what they lost can be found, I'm donating 10% of the sales of my painting, "Schneewittchen (German for Snow White): Neglected Child" and 10% of the sales of prints to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. If you believe there's hope, please buy a print of my painting.
