Another thank you postcard, this one for one of my old coworkers from way back when.
Back in April, my family and I walked through West Chester, PA, with friends of ours to raise money and awareness in West Chester University’s American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Out of the Darkness Walk. Just a month before, in March we had suffered the loss of our 14-year-old friend of the family, Alec Metzger.
In order to try and do any small thing to help the family and to help prevent others from suffering the same crippling sadness and loss, we joined in the walk and effort to raise money. As part of my push to raise funds I offered hand-drawn thank you beer postcards for anyone donating any amount.
Thanks to the generosity of friends, I raised $470 and have ten postcards to create. Here’s the first one.
All postcards are created on the back of panels from six-pack containers for beer.
If you’d like to help the cause by funding awareness and education to help bring light to and remove the shame that comes when a suicide occurs AND get a postcard in return — it’s not too late to donate! Donate here on the fundraising page and I’ll get in touch to get your postal address for a postcard.
As I complete the postcards, I’ll continue to post them. Since I’ve been out of the drawing practice for a while now, I’m hoping they improve with time.
Another vacation 6-pack beer postcard from the Adirondack trip heading out in tomorrow’s mail. From Breckenridge Brewery sample case that my brother-in-law brought. I just recently drank a bottle of the vanilla porter from that case and couldn’t finish. No flavorings in my coffee and no flavorings in my beer please.
One for my brother who lives down the lane using the old upstate NY standby-but-still-good Saranac Pale Ale.
