To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) was started by Jamie Tworkowski for one reason: to help a friend. TWLOHA is a nonprofit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. TWLOHA began in 2006 when Tworkowski posted a blog on MySpace and began selling t-shirts as a way to pay for his friend’s treatment. Sparked by the support of bands such as Switchfoot and Paramore, the t-shirts quickly became something of a phenomenon within the music realm. TWLOHA now has the largest online audience of any non-profit on MySpace and Facebook and has invested nearly $1 million directly to treatment and recovery.
Lecture begins at 4 p.m., Robert and Ruth Kehl Center at Clarke University. "To Write Love on Her Arms" merchandise will be available for purchase at the event.
