#SABD13: When the Blogger Community Comes Together For a Cause [Embedded Tweets]

4 years ago

As many of you know from my recent blog post--Join The Suicide Awareness and Prevention Blog Carnival!-- I am helping to promote USC School of Social Work's Suicide Prevention campaign.  After pulling together the #SABD13 Blog Carnival Roundup I had to take a moment to step back and reflect on the incredible stories people had shared. I am in such awe of the power of the blogger community when it comes together for a cause.  These are not just blog posts, but rather they are our brothers and sisters demonstrating their vulnerability and heart through the written word. Looking through these incredible, deep, and emotional blog posts, I know that many people will now know they are not alone! I want to give a big special thank you to all of my BlogHer sisters who came out to support this incredible cause! Everyone who participated thus far has helped to break the silence and that means the world to me.

Kim said it best: 

Here are some of my favorite submissions for the #SABD13 blog roll thus far:

and last, but certainly not least:

This is just a sample of over 50 submissions that have already been added the #SABD13 Roundup. If you have yet to do so, I highly recommend you check it out. Remember, this campaign continues through the month of September in honor of Suicide Awareness and Prevention Month. If you have a story to share or simply want to help raise awareness, please grab a Blogging for Suicide Prevention badge and help break the silence. Every voice makes a difference, won't you join in?
