To raise money for American Foundation for Suicide Prevention who is at the forefront of research, education and prevention initiatives designed to reduce loss of life from suicide.

I will be joining with thousands of people nationwide this fall to walk in AFSP's 2009
Out of the Darkness
Community Walk to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

My personal fundraising goal is $
1000. I would appreciate any support that you give me for this worthwhile cause.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is at the forefront of research, education and prevention initiatives designed to reduce loss of life from suicide. With more than 32,000 lives lost each year in the U.S. and over one million worldwide, the importance of AFSP's mission has never been greater, nor our work more urgent.

I hope you will consider supporting my participation in this event. Any contribution will help the work of AFSP, and all donations are 100% tax deductible.
