Jen has offered to support the volunteer work I do on crisis and suicide hotline for Contact We Care. This organization has been around for 40 years, providing emotional support to those in crisis or considering suicide through or local and national hotline numbers and our texting service. With over 14,000 calls per year, it’s so wonderful that Jen has decided to use her race as a forum to spread awareness of what this organization does and help raise funds to keep the organization going.
