2015 has arrived. At midnight we officially rang in the New Year.
Maybe you were standing among the one million people in Times Square when the ball dropped. Maybe you wished loved ones were closer. Maybe you were alone, struggling to grasp the hope we all ache to embrace as one chapter ends and another begins.
Wherever you were and wherever you are now, know this: It is good to have you with us. 2015 is better because you are here.
As the fireworks fade, this is when the hard work begins for all of us.
In a small office in sunny Florida, a group of people has been working hard to dream up what is possible in 2015. Looking over the past eight years, we have been lucky enough to witness positive change in the lives of thousands of people all around the world. Looking back, we’ve responded to more than 180,000 messages from people in 100 countries, invested more than $1.5 million into treatment and recovery, and travelled more than 3.4 million miles to meet people face to face.
If you met us on the road, wore a TWLOHA shirt, connected with words you needed to hear on our blog, or shared our Find Help page with a friend, we are grateful. As 2015 begins, we are asking for your help.
This is your invitation to help us do great work in 2015 and beyond. We will continue to travel across the country to music festivals. HEAVY AND LIGHT will happen once again in Los Angeles and Orlando. We will continue to communicate words of hope and healing, and we will do our best to connect those struggling to mental health resources in their communities. After midnight, that is our promise: to keep this movement going.
