One of our latest features on Weaving Wyrd is a Charity sidebar, where I list the charities that I donate to each month, as well as a link to their main website so that you can read more about the cause and get more information.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and in that spirit, I chose Susan G. Komen for the Cure. This charity does more than just raise awareness of breast cancer, it pushes forward in offering outreach programs and research grants to eliminate this illness.
November’s charity is in direct response to a personal event that occurred during October. On October 3rd, two days after my birthday, my father attempted suicide. This event, coupled with the recent incline of teenage suicides headlining on the news, that pushed me into donating to a cause regarding suicide awareness and prevention. In honor of my father still being here on this earth, November’s charity is the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
