There is a story unfolding.
It is being told around the world. It has been shared on stages at colleges and concerts, under tents at music festivals, and in conversations sparked by t-shirts. With The Storytellers, it will now be told on high school campuses between classes, among friends, and in morning announcements. It’s our story, and it’s your story.
You are the storytellers.
You came into this world with a voice—a voice to laugh, to cry, to scream, to sing, to tell the world what matters. You have a voice that deserves to be heard. High school students have asked us, “How do we join this movement? How do we use our voices to spread this message of hope and healing to our friends on our high school campuses? What is something we can do to make a difference?”
This is our answer.
We believe in the power of high school students, and we have witnessed the way their passion combines with compassion to create change. They, and you have a voice that can change your community. The Storytellers High School Campaign is a stage for high school students to build community and also fundraise for TWLOHA. It's an opportunity to share this story to an audience of your peers.
The idea is simple: invite people who are passionate about TWLOHA, who have a unique platform every day of the school year, to tell our story. We allow their creativity and genius to decide how to tell it, as we give them resources to raise awareness and funds for an organization that matters to them. This is one of those resources.
The impact of this simple idea is not yet known. We hope to see a movement rise up that declares love and acceptance, holds stories above stereotypes, and leads to conversations about difficult issues such as depression, addiction, and self-injury.
The Storytellers is a way to speak out to your campus and say that hope and healing are real by inviting your friends, your classmates, and your teachers to participate in our story.
You are inviting them to listen to the very stories surrounding them.
You are inviting them to truly live their own stories.
You are inviting them into our story.
You are inviting them into your story.
