Joe: Thanks for posting this. I too like you give a damn. There has been so many stories of guy suicides in the news recently. I started reading about the Trevor Project (www.thetrevorproject.org) that is a partner to this "We give a damn" campaign. Time to break out my checkbook again.

A lot of us picked up on this last week, several blogging friends posted on it, several news agencies are starting to report on it. I hope it helps. Thanks for the new resource.

Peace <3

It is an important message Jay. We have to keep spreading it, so that people understand that their are more options (suicide, not being one of them). There is always help.
