Cocoa, Florida - September 12th, 2008- To Write Love on Her Arms is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for those struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. Founder Jamie Tworkowski and Renee Yohe recently spent some time with the staff of NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams to discuss the organization which exists to encourage, inform, inspire, and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery.

At the young age of 26, Jamie Tworkowski left his job to pursue a dream to help others. He jumped into TWLOHA full-time and what began as a humble story and an attempt to help a friend had now become a non-profit organization. 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.

"With TWLOHA, we're trying to talk about things that tend to stay silent. We're talking about problems of pain and we want people to know about the hope and help that exist in the face of these issues. We want people to know they're not alone in the places they feel stuck. Maybe more than anything, we believe that people need other people, that we weren't meant to do life alone. We're told that nine million people will see this story on NBC, so we're obviously thrilled at the idea of so many people being invited into this conversation" says founder Jamie Tworkowski.

Brian Williams is the seventh anchor and managing editor in the history of "NBC Nightly News," which represents the largest single daily source of news in America.

Please tune in.

Once I saw Miley Cyrus wearing a TWLOHA shirt I kind of lost interest.

Still love the message though.
