Having a big name behind a cause is always a big help, isn't it?
Particularly in the case of a cause like suicide that needs education and National dialogue to be tackled effectively.
The media reluctance to cover this subject is why, as some of you know, I started a petition. (Click here to sign).
Next week's Get Your Wellness On - Suicide Awareness & Prevention Fair will shine a spotlight on suicide by presenting facts and figures to the public, and at the same time offer a holistic approach to wellness.
As our flyers say: Strengthen The Mind - Strengthen The Body.

So my friends, Come One - Come All
Oh, I almost forgot, the now ultra famous Lady Gaga, used to go to NYU at the same time as my daughter and some of her best friends. The picture above (sorry there's no picture, but I was not able to upload it) shows her early days of performing in the clubs around NYU.
Has anyone seen her lately?
I am only asking because I would like to get word to her about the fair, because if she comes... well, you can imagine how much light that would shine on the cause!
Just a thought!
Okay, I'd better go because I have a lot of work to do, and you can help by spreading the word.
