Microsoft is giving away $500,000. Help us win!

By To Write Love on Her Arms

Welcome to August. Microsoft is giving $500,000 to 10 different charities. They’ve already selected nine and the 10th is up to you. The contest is called #UpgradeYourWorld. The money will go to the organization that gets the most votes on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Needless to say, we’re excited. And we need your help.

We’re asking you to vote once a day, every day between now and August 23, on Twitter and Instagram. Vote by posting on the following social media channels every day:

Twitter:
I #vote for @TWLOHA to #UpgradeYourWorld by providing hope & help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, & suicide.

Instagram:
Use the photo at the bottom of this page (or upload your own!) and use the following caption:
I #vote for @TWLOHA to #UpgradeYourWorld by providing hope & help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, & suicide.

Facebook:
You can also vote on Facebook by clicking on this link that takes you to the Windows Facebook page. Write this statement in the comments*
I #vote for @To Write Love On Her Arms to #UpgradeYourWorld as they present hope and find help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide.

*(Copy/Pasting this text will not tag TWLOHA, so you will have to type @To Write Love On Her Arms out in order for our page to be linked to your comment)

It’s important to note that retweets and shares do not count as votes. Each post needs to be unique to count as a vote. With your help on social media, we can use this money to continue to bring a message of hope and help to the world, to break the silence surrounding mental health, and to invest in treatment and recovery.

Again, the contest ends August 23. Let’s use our tweets, Instagrams, and comments to show Microsoft how we can #UpgradeYourWorld! As always, thank you so much for your support.

    This October will make ten years since I have regularly self harmed, with only one instance since then. To Write Love On Her Arms has shown me I was never alone, and is helping me let go of the shame I held onto even after quitting. I know young people who have struggled as well, and knowing we are not alone is so freeing. Thanks, TWLOHA!

    I wish I had TWLOHA when I was in my 20’s. I may have saved myself a lot of heartache and grown more confidante. Life is hard sometimes.
