We are well in the New Year, and SOSL has some exciting plans for continued growth in 2018! Whether you contribute on a monthly basis, through a fundraising appeal, the Ride for Life or our Walk in Remembrance with Hope, we appreciate all of you for your financial donations this past year.
In December, one business in San Diego went above and beyond and provided SOSL with a “holiday miracle”. Rivo Holdings, owned by Dan Koetting, learned about our organization after one of his employees found support at one of our groups after losing a loved one to suicide. In his company, he has established a holiday tradition of giving back. Every year for the company Christmas party, he purchases gifts to be raffled to the employees. They buy raffle tickets for the chance to win one of the prizes. In turn, all the ticket proceeds are donated to a local charity.
In November, Rivo Holdings called with the news that SOSL was the designated charity for 2017. I was surprised and delighted, but I had no idea what that really meant. I was astonished when we received a $3,600 donation! The generosity of the employees of Rivo Holding exceeded our wildest expectations. All of us at SOSL – are sincerely thankful. Thank you!
At times like these, words seem inadequate. It touches my heart that San Diegans are giving to SOSL to support fellow San Diegans who have been touched by suicide.
To each and every one of you – thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
We invite you to include a message and/or photo of your loved one who has died by suicide. Click here for the Virtual Quilt Donation Form.
