Please support “Project Wake Up”
My name is Bob Candice. I own Candicci’s Restaurant and Bar. I have been in business for more than 35 years doing what I love, serving quality food to my customers. Over the years I have come to know my customers and have grown to love many of them. I sincerely appreciate their loyalty and support.
I have another request. I humbly and respectfully request that you support Project Wake Up. They are raising funds to film a documentary about what changed my life forever, loosing my son Ryan to suicide. The documentary is not specifically about my son, but about mental illness and attempting to end the stigma about it. Please watch the videos and believe me when I say that nobody deserves to go through what I have gone through, loosing my son unexpectedly to suicide.
Teenage suicide has risen over the past few years and is now the second leading cause of death for ages 18-24. There are many arguments about why it has increased. Naturally, as a society, we need to analyze the problem and make the necessary changes, but in the near future, we need to make as many people aware of it as possible and make sure that the support is there in hope to prevent loosing another person to suicide.
We have provided this post and information contained herein to help prevent this from happening. Please open your heart in order to prevent other hearts from being broken forever. As you will see, this is a worthy project and these people involved are doing a great job for a great cause.
A person would never expect this to happen to them. It’s hard to even put into words how teenage suicide effects that remaining family members. My heart is broke, a piece of myself is missing forever and we hope to help prevent this from happening to other families. Please contribute today! There is so much more that I could and want to say, but please watch the videos, open your heart and contribute today!
