You Have a Purpose
In honor of National Suicide Prevention Month this September, we are launching our "You Have a Purpose" campaign. We want everyone to know that you have a purpose on this planet, and you always will.
Buddy Project is aiming to raise $10,000 before September ends. The proceeds will benefit mental health and recovery centers throughout the United States. We're hoping to raise this through direct donations and through sales of our "You Have a Purpose" shirt campaign. Proceeds will be contributed to mental health facilities throughout the United States.
Mental health care needs to become more affordable and accessible, and we want to help the world achieve that. 90% of all people who die by suicide have a diagnosable mental health condition, according to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
We will be posting people's stories, photography, videography, artwork, and poetry in order to give people a platform to speak up about their experience with suicide. Whether you've experienced suicidal thoughts or lost someone to suicide, we encourage you to submit your work.
We also want to hear what your purpose is in life. Make a post on your social media sharing what your purpose is using the hashtag #MyPurposeIs. There is a "My Purpose Is" sign you can print out and take a picture with to be included in our Suicide Prevention Month media.
Share your story
If you are comfortable sharing your personal experience with suicide through writing, photography, videography, artwork, or poetry, please submit your work to be featured. We will be sharing stories throughout September.
Support Our Mission
Support us by purchasing a "You Have a Purpose" shirt! All proceeds earned through sales of the shirts will directly benefit us. We will contribute a portion of the proceeds towards mental health facilities in the United States.
