Out of the Darkness Community Walk: A Fundraiser

Marc Block
A few months ago, following the suicide of a fellow blogging dad, Marc Block, I wrote about my experience with depression. In the post, which was later republished on Huffington Post, I linked to more writing about depression from other dads in our Dad Bloggers group, in an attempt to "come out" and hopefully reach out to other depressed men/dads with the message that they were not alone.

The person who initially reached out to one of our group members with the news was Marc's friend, Hilary Ratner, who is now fundraising on behalf of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. On October 26th, she will participate in the foundation's Los Angeles Out of the Darkness Community Walk, and her fundraising goal is modest and very much achievable.

Please read her words, which I cut and pasted below, and consider making a donation.

In memory of my friend and coworker Marc, I will be joining with thousands of people nationwide this fall to walk in AFSP's Los Angeles Out of the Darkness Community Walk to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. 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 38,000 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.

And please, if you are in a crisis, call 1-800-273-TALK (8255)
