FUCKING READ THIS.

Whether it's vested interest or not, this is something I'd appreciate everyone taking a minute or two of your time on...call it a Christmas present to me, and countless other people who really can (and do) utilize this organization...
When my Father died, I chose this group as one of the benefactors of money that was coming in, in his name...granted, there are flaws, but they're trying really hard to offer something that not a lot of people really have a handle on. It's 2006, it shouldn't be that taboo, or at least seen as something that doesn't deserve a spotlight and proper funding -- regardless of the pitfalls which may exist, all we need is one less organization trying to fight a good fight.

Anyway...http://www.save1800suicide.org/

With only a few days left before X-Mas, hours left in Michael Leavitt's term as Secretary of Health & Human Services and minutes left in Eric Broderick’s term as head of SAMHSA -- the Federal Government is working overtime to steal 1-800-SUICIDE instead of simply giving this non-profit the over $300,000 of already appropriated and earmarked funds that are still owed.

Here is how you can help!

WRITE to the Feds and Tell Them to Pay the Funds they Promised!

TELL THE FCC TO DENY SAMHSA & HHS ATTEMPT TO PULL 1-800-SUICIDE

Please pass this along -- every letter truly counts!
I leave in a few hours for New York -- my plane to New Mexico leaves early, early...I hope everything is on their way safely to whatever you call home for the holidays, and I hope that you all have the most wonderful Christmases (et al) possible. More later...
