AWARENESS WEDNESDAY: Suicide Prevention Awarded

This hop is intended for real causes. (Please
don't make up silly or vulgar things to diminish the 
importance of causes that hit home to so many.) 
This should be concerning something you are
passionate about to help educate others in a cause
to make the world a better place,
create understanding, rally support, etc...
*Let's please keep it family friendly, too. Thanks!
Everyone that shares a CAUSE is awarded the AWARENESS AWARD and encouraged to pass it along. You are welcome to the award when you make your AWARENESS poet. Please include the button with your post and add the Linky. This first linky is for the post of accepting and passing along the award as well as adding to your award collection. This will help us all learn about their causes as well. You are all WELCOME to post the Linky's so it is easy for your followers to share, too.  ;D
Healthy Minds. Healthy Lives
You have been honored with this award. There are often things that others are uninformed of and therefore, they rely on unreliable sources and/or assumptions about things. There is STIGMA in many facets of life. AWARENESS is how we can overcome ignorance. This is your opportunity to help educate others about a cause you believe in.
  • Let others know who gave you the award and link back to them as a thank you.
  • You may give this to as many or few individuals as you choose. This should be awarded to those with a cause. Something they want to raise awareness about. Don't forget to notify your recipients of the award.
  • Display the badge in your post and tell us about what you would like to raise awareness about.
  • Link your Award post to the Awareness Award Page so that as others find out about this, they can link back to your post and learn more. (In the Linky provided here)
Let's change the world; one blog post at a time!
Don't forget to Link your AWARENESS AWARD post here:
When you link, please start your caption with what your cause is.  ;D
  • Grab the button code on the top left of the sidebar:
Write your post: Tell us about your cause, educate the world about it, let the world know how they can help in the cause. Remember that not everyone will be as passionate as you are about a given cause, but you will help others have a better understanding and will also find others to jump in and offer support to you and/or your cause.
  • Link up your post to share with others. Feel free to grab the linky and post to your page, also. Let's get the word out and start making the world a better place, one post at a time!
  • Be considerate of others causes. Don't post negative comments, attack individuals or groups. THUMPER'S THEORY APPLIES: "If you can't say something nice (supportive, constructive, etc...) don't say anything at all.
  • Make new friends, learn about things that are affecting other people's lives, become allies... You may find some dear friends by following others and showing support for their causes! Find at least a few to follow each time and help spread the news to your followers!



  • *These can be different causes each time. Many people have various things they are passionate about or would like to open others eyes to.

I am a big, big fan of Frank Warren. I think he has done amazing things for suicide awareness/prevention.
