I run an organization kind of like his..we're almost a year old and we're called ToThemToUs. What would his best advice for starting an advocacy group much like his (depression,suicide,drugs,death,etc .,etc.) and where should I (we) turn for support?

Also, TWLOHA is an amazing ministry and I'm glad Jamie took the initiative to do this!

Does it become difficult hearing stories from people, or is it something you've learned to cope with instantly as it occurs?

Are there days where you just want to throw in the towel and let someone else run your Org?

Do you reach out to bands, or do they reach out to you?

Do you plan to keep touring with bands? Any new tour plans in the near future?

What have you been reading lately? Do you enjoy the work of Rumi?

Just a side note, Jamie is such a nice guy. I had the privilege of interviewing him this summer.

I just want to know where all the money goes. I know Jamie mentioned in a blog that 25% of proceeds go to a specified list of organizations. So what about the other 75%?

Let me start off by saying I'm so glad you're interviewing Jamie.

- Granted you are not trained professionals, do people ever come to you with serious issues, thinking you're the answer? What types of emotions or pressures do you face in such situations, and how do you go about handling them?

- Being on the road with bands and festivals (Warped Tour, Cornerstone, etc.), the opportunity comes up to meet many people and hear their stories. What is one of the stories - from bands or fans - that has always stuck around in your mind and why?

- As a huge supporter of this cause, I feel like buying shirts and spreading the word by mouth isn't enough. Is there anything more I can do?

- At what point did you finally realize To Write Love On Her Arms was going to be a success? Basically - what has been the high point so far, if there has been one?

- Can we expect any new merchandise designs coming up soon?

Have you ever had a bad mishap with any bands? Names can be exempt if necessary.

Renee is still in Florida, and she is doing just fine. Quite well, actually. Jamie could probably give a more detailed answer.

I admire all that you have done to support those struggling with addiction, mental disorders, etc.

Have you ever thought of writing a book possibly combining Renee's story with the stories of other "victims" you've encountered?
Do you guys plan on getting involved with the government as in speaking in front of Congress on behalf of the organization about the issues you guys are involved with?
Finally, what kind of music have you been listening to lately besides the bands that support TWLOHA?

Are all of the bands that work with TWLOHA christians? If they are, do they have to be or did it just end up like that?

Also, do you think you will ever sell TWLOHA merchandise in stores?
