To Write Love On Her Arms Founder Speaking on Campus April 14

Jamie Tworkowski, the founder of To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA), will speak at 7 p.m. Monday, April 14, in the North Café of Webb Center. The free program is sponsored by Old Dominion's Office of Counseling Services.

TWLOHA is a nonprofit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. It has one of the largest online audiences of any nonprofit on Facebook and Twitter, and the TWLOHA team has responded to more than 170,000 messages from 100 countries. TWLOHA has also given over $1 million directly to treatment and recovery.

TWLOHA began as the simple attempt to tell the story of a friend in need, but quickly grew into an Internet phenomenon. Supported by bands such as Switchfoot, Anberlin and Paramore, TWLOHA spread quickly throughout the music community.
