TO WRITE LOVE ON HER ARMS
Hosts Live Global Webcast Monday, October 5th
From Their Florida Headquarters
Featuring Conversation and Performances By
Damion Suomi and Andy Zipf
New York, NY – September 28, 2009 - To Write Love on Her Arms is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery. On October 5th the TWLOHA team will expand their outreach by launching a global outlet for honest conversation and community fused with music by Damion Suomi and Andy Zipf.

All the world will be invited to see inside the TWLOHA headquarters via SynchLive. Click here to watch: www.twloha.com/webcast

For 1 week after the webcast, fans can download free music from Damion Suomi and Andy Zipf here: www.twloha.com/webcast

"Music is something mysterious in that it has many faces. For the person singing, it is their therapy, their story. For the person listening, it is their inspiration, their hope. The goal is for the conversations that happen in between the songs to be as real and honest as the songs themselves. We are attempting to create an environment where people from all over are invited into a conversation about pain and about hope, but ultimately about redemption. We are inviting people locally, and all over the world through the webcast, to come hang out inside TWLOHA HQ for a couple of hours and have such a conversation. We believe that Hope is given a chance to show up in settings like these," says Rich Sullivan of To Write Love on Her Arms.

"There is a line in TWLOHA's vision statement that says ‘Beyond treatment, we believe that community is essential, that people need other people, that we were never meant to do life alone.’ It took me a long time, but I now understand what that means. There can be so much healing found in a conversation, in songs, and in just being honest with one another," says artist Damion Suomi.

Damion Suomi and Andy Zipf are both artists on the charity minded record label P is for Panda. The label has offered to give away music off Damion’s recent 2009 release Self Titled, as well as music from Andy Zipf’s upcoming record, Our Voice is a Weapon, to coincide with the event.

“I am thrilled that TWLOHA have asked two of the Panda bands to be involved in their first ever webcast. When I dreamt about starting P is for Panda, I wanted to work with artists who did not only want to create art, but also wanted to be involved with the bigger picture. I wanted to partner with artists who shared the passion of helping others. Who believed that this world is a community and we can use our individual talents to help. Teaming up with TWLOHA is a perfect example of what this looks like, ”says Chad Pearson owner of P is for Panda.

In an effort to extend the conversation of the evening to people around the world, everyone will have the opportunity to send their questions for Damion and Andy via Twitter by replying to @TWLOHA. Questions will be chosen at random and Damion and Andy will respond to them live during the webcast.

TWLOHA began in February 2006, when founder Jamie Tworkowski wrote a story, a glimpse into a friend’s life and her first steps to recovery from drug addiction, self-injury, and depression. The story, titled To Write Love On Her Arms, along with the t-shirts Tworkowski printed to help pay for his friend’s recovery, started a movement, not only within his local Orlando, FL community, but one that was swiftly embraced by people everywhere. Many bands (Paramore, Thrice, Anberlin, Switchfoot, Bayside, The Almost) quickly picked up the message, informed their fans, and started finding new ways to donate to the cause and help out.

At least even if they don't know what it represents, they're still blindly donating to the cause

calling out people as stupid scene girls is exactly what the organization is trying to stop.

Try getting to know people and understand that with each shirt, with every person, there is a story.

Anyway the webcast should be amazing. TWLOHA has a great way of bringing music to life in a powerful way :)

Damion's record is one of my favorite of 2009. Andy's stuff is pretty great, from what I heard so far.
