2,000 people commit suicide worldwide everyday. How do you know if someone close to you is considering suicide? What can you do to help prevent suicide?
We cover these questions and more in our 4-minute video this month.
Very Short Summary (In which amazing details are missing that you’ll have to get by watching our awesome video above!):
1. This month is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month.
- Every year, almost one million people die from suicide; a “global” mortality rate of 16 per 100,000, or one death every 40 seconds. Suicide accounts for more loss of life in the world than the total number of deaths from war, acts of terrorism and homicide combined.
2. Our Nonprofit Group of the Month
- Our featured charity for September is the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention.
And remember, ContactsforLess.ca is the only website in Canada that lets you order your contact lens online, save 70% or more on low prices, and donates 51% of net profits to the charity YOU choose!
