In the holiday classic movie, George Bailey has reached such an emotional low point that he is seriously contemplating suicide by jumping off a bridge. But before he can act Clarence, a guardian angel, intervenes and shows George how much love and support he actually has, as well as the positive impact of his life on others.
That’s a close parallel to what our Lines for Life crisis intervention specialists do every day. People call the Suicide Lifeline (1-800-273-TALK) at their darkest hour. Our highly trained people help them reconnect with their reasons for living and establish a plan of action that will keep them safe.
Think of Clarence as a crisis intervention specialist. Or maybe think of our trained counselors as angels. They are there 24/7 to restore hope and prevent suicide.
This holiday season you can help change the trajectory of people’s lives – positive changes that can have multi-generational impact. Please consider Lines for Life in your annual giving so that we can continue our lifesaving work.
It is a wonderful life.
