Did you know that every year more than 800,000 people lose their life to suicide and up to 25 times as many people make a suicide attempt? Unfortunately in December of 2015, my step-brother, Ricky Esser, was a victim of suicide and the absolute devastation that his absence has left behind is heartbreaking and permanent. 🖤I'm not shy about sharing my own personal experiences suffering from severe anxiety, depression and debilitating fear of being one of those above statistics. I remember hovering in a corner, just last year, trembling in fear that I would somehow inadvertently make the decision to end my own life. Until you've personally gone through an experience like that, you don't ever truly understand the meaning of life and what a blessing it is EVERY. SINGLE. DAY to be able to live it. Mental health is SO IMPORTANT and is severely mismanaged in this country and this year's World Suicide Prevention Day theme is "Take a Minute, Change a Life" and I intend to do exactly that through the vehicle of fashion and LuLaRoe. This coming Sunday, September 10, at 9:00a.m. to Monday, September 11, at 9:00a.m. I will be hosting a fundraiser for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. For every purchase that you make in my FULL INVENTORY Album Sale, I will be donating 20% of those proceeds to the AFSP. I've also submitted a request to LuLaRoe headquarters to match that donation. Click on the link in my profile to help support this incredibly important effort. I feel so blessed to have the support of my family and friends every single day and if we can save the life of just one person or provide strength and courage to another family whose suffering from a loss, than I believe it is our duty as fellow mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, grandparents, friends, aunts, uncles, cousins, coworkers and human beings to do so. This is a cause that makes me incredibly emotional and affects me down deep in my core, so THANK YOU in advance for any support you can provide to this very special effort and as always, THANK YOU for allowing me to serve you while achieving my dreams!
