This year, I was invited to be a part of a special Valentine’s campaign for people without partners. #ThereIsAlwaysMe was created by crisis chat site IMAlive, and promoted by PostSecret, @unsuicide, Torrey DeVitto, Jennifer Niven, and Kevin Brooks.
This short video shows highlights from the campaign results. People shared notes with inspiring messages to be found by strangers in schools, hospitals, and more, and then shared photos of those notes with the hashtag.
It was great to be a part of this uplifting campaign that remembers not everyone is partnered on Valentine’s Day, but we are never alone.
IMAlive is a 24/7 online crisis chat service in America and Canada, with volunteer counsellors trained in suicide intervention. They are accessible anytime online. If you would like to volunteer for the virtual helpline, they are always training new volunteers. Watch this video for more info on how to volunteer.
