I love Jared

A To Write Love on Her Arms Fundraiser

It may come as a surprise to some, but I have always been a Sam girl. Living in Canada, loving the Moose came naturally, I guess. But all joking aside, it goes way deeper than that. Both Sam and Jared stand up for what they believe in, even when being quiet is the easier way. I especially admire Jared’s frank and honest conversations regarding depression, and what he’s been through. He makes mistakes – he’s human. And he owns up to those mistakes and apologizes for them, but doesn’t dwell on them.

A little under a week ago, I started a campaign to raise money for To Write Love on Her Arms. I chose the “I love Jared” pendant specifically to raise the money. ($5 from each purchase goes toward TWLOHA – available here). There was a conversation on Twitter on the time as to whether I should use Always Keep Fighting or AKF instead. In my opinion, AKF is purely Jared. It is something that will always be associated with him – and as far as I am concerned, it is not something I ever want to profit off of. Even if the profit goes toward a charity.

Because of recent events, I thought it apt to explain why I am pushing so hard to raise money for TWLOHA. Depression is a real thing – something I myself have fought in the past, and continue to fight. It’s important to acknowledge – and important to recognize.
