“Our desire with TWLOHA is that every single thing we do would point to hope and community. We believe that music is important in its ability to move people. We are grateful beyond words for the amazing support that continues to come from our friends who play music. "Heavy and Light" is an attempt to bring all those things under one roof, to paint a picture of what we hope to be about. On a very simple level, these are some of our favorite artists coming to play our favorite venue. That alone is pretty great. But the bigger picture, the reason these guys are playing this show, is this idea of an honest conversation. So many people live with so much pain, and since these are issues that people don't talk much about, most of them walk through it alone. We believe in hope and help, and more than anything, we believe that people were not meant to walk through life alone. The last Saturday night of 2007 is looking like a pretty good night to be in Orlando. We hope to see you there” says To Write Love On Her Arms founder, Jamie Tworkowski.
WHAT: In May 2006, 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 quickly picked up the message, informed their fans, and started finding new ways to donate to the cause and help out. Within a year, TWLOHA had raised $100,000. In August, Myspace.com announced TWLOHA the winner of their Impact Awards. www.twloha.com or www.myspace.com/towriteloveonherarms
