Hi P!NK, First let me tell you that I am 40 and your music is queued in my car everyday. Thank you for being so damn different.
The reason I am writing is a serious one. I work for a Web page called" Enough is Enough:the blog page". It's charter is to help bring down the suicide rate of young teens, particularly those in the LGBTQ community. Suicide is the number one killer of teens. Virtually all caused by ignorant homophobic bullies. The summer was very quiet. But the school your is next month and the suicides will happen almost immediately. Last year we had 5 young people die in just over a week. It just can't go on. Our organization is in the middle of a Suicide Hotline campaign to deliver messages of hope. I've come to you because I know that you are a great beacon of hope for many, many young people. I'm asking you to participate in our campaign. It is a single picture of you with some sort of positive msg (ie. you matter or you are not alone or I love you etc.) and then list the Suicide Hotline number 800-273-8255(TALK) and mention our name - Enough is Enough. This would make a tremendous difference in the life of a hopeless teen to see a personal message from their idol. I sincerely hope you can find it in your heart to do this. Respectfully. Lori Grundman
