As the UK freezes we hope you’re keeping warm and taking care of yourself.
It’s the busiest time of year for us, with SIAD (Self-Injury Awareness Day) coming up on 1st March. And we have lots of exciting things planned for the coming months as we celebrate our 10th birthday.
Right now, our new awareness wristbands and key rings are available, and we hope that as many of you as possible will support us by buying one. It costs a great deal to run an organisation, not only in terms of time (we’re all volunteers with busy lives to cope with) but also financially. We’re completely unfunded, and so we rely on the sale of wristbands to help keep us running.
We’re excited to have changed our name back to LifeSIGNS, and our new wristbands reflect this. So even if you’ve got a wristband from past years, we hope you’ll buy a new one and help us for the months ahead.
This month we’ll update our SIAD page, which gives lots of ideas and resources to help you raise awareness about self-injury. And all our handy Fact Sheets are available for free download from our Publications page.
So please do take a look and let us know what you’re doing for SIAD. If you’re running an event we can let you have bulk orders of wristbands at a reduced cost – please just email Jules with details.
Everything we do, we do for you, our members. So we thank you for your continued support.
