"22 Plus 3” The American Suicide Prevention Push Up Challenge
Every day 22 US Veterans and a total of 113 Americans commit suicide. That’s right, over 41,000 Americans commit suicide each year and this is totally preventable. "22 Plus 3" includes all veterans and the men, women, and children we lose to suicide in America each year. It’s time we ALL created greater awareness and did something to help reduce this number!
The goal of the "22 Plus 3” American Suicide Prevention Push Up Challenge was to help raise awareness and money for organizations dedicated to helping reduce this staggering number. Because someone you know may be suffering in silence, we encourage you to take part in helping combat this staggering statistic. ACT NOW!
Donations received were distributed by Project Overwatch to the following organizations:
1 - www.hopeforthewarriors.org
2 - www.freedomsystem.org
3 - www.liftforthe22.org
4 - www.afsp.org
5 – www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org
While the "22 Plus 3" Challenge has come to an end, the good news is it isn't too late for you to help. Every day, hundreds of Americans contemplate suicide as a permanent solution to temporary problems, and sadly, every day, dozens of Americans make that irreversible decision to end their own life. We are still committed to helping combat these statistics. Click on the "DONATE" button above, let us know which of the five listed organizations you would like to receive your donation, and 100% of your donation will be forwarded to that organization. If no preference is stated, donations will be split among all five above listed organizations. Either way, as always with Strength and Honor MC, you can be assured your donation will 100% go back out to a worthy cause. All of our operational costs are borne by our members, so 0% of your donation is used for our expenses!
