Why I'll Be Wearing Yellow Tomorrow

Hey guys! So I saw this on Rose's blog (click here to visit her awesome section of cyber space) and I am choosing to participate too! Tomorrow is suicide awareness day, and what she says sums up what I feel perfectly, so here is what she wrote about it:


Tomorrow is Suicide Awareness Day, which is (all together now) why i'll be wearing yellow tomorrow, and you should too. Wear it to show people you understand. Wear it because we need to spread the word. Wear it as a way of supporting those who are going through a time in their lives where they feel they don't want to live anymore. It's important.

If you can't wear yellow tomorrow (because it's a school day, sigh) write "Love" on your wrist. Make a poster, wear a badge, blog about it, create a button, tell your family, your mates, your enemies, your future nemesis (c'mon, we're all going to have one). Just spread the word! Because it affects more people than you think, more people than you'd want  to think, and if you tell all your friends at school, and all your classes, and all those people you don't know see your blog post or slogan or button or poster, at least one of them will be going through thoughts of suicide. And you can help by letting them know that you CARE.


This is a poster i made today. I've spread the word on Facebook, and i hope you will, too. Tomorrow i'll be wearing my home-made Suicide Awareness badge on my tie. Anything yellow goes. 

Suicide Awareness Day - 10th of September
You matter.



*Please note, Rose made those cool posters and badge/pin things, I am not that creative ;) 

And that is why I will be wearing a yellow-ish color and writing "love" on my wrist tomorrow!
I wish you would participate too,
July

  1. That's a terrific idea! I didn't know yellow meant that. I love yellow. It's good to spread the word and let people know you care. :)

Hello there! Thanks so much for dropping by my little corner of the blogosphere. I'd really appreciate if you could give me a follow as well *hint, hint* These "about-me's" are literally the hardest things to write, but I'll have a go at it. You can call me July, or really whatever else floats your boat. I live in a very culturally proud little town that borders beautiful beaches, giving us fun for both summer and winter such as swimming, tanning, boating, skiing, ice-fishing, ice-berg walking, and gorgeous sunsets on the beach year-round. I hope to make it through high school and head off to college for, well, I don't know yet, but whatever it is, it'll be something I love. Robotics, books, movies, and music of all genres are kinda my thing. I would basically consider myself to be one of those stereotypical girls who fall desperately in love with fictional boys... I have a strange obsession with tea drunken from cute elephant mugs. So grab a cuppa and strap yourselves in for some brilliant stuff coming soon!
