“I am one of the designers here at Eco Flower, and was honored when I was asked to create a product for this charity. I can’t begin to stress the importance of having a safe haven for families and the youth of our LGBT community. Having a place where questions can be answered, stories can be told without judgment and families can be brought back together through sharing wisdom and love, is key to suicide prevention and homelessness.
So many times we see across news feeds that another child, another adult, another life as been taken because in that moment that person felt wrong or alone. It's a chilling reminder that I’m lucky to be here today.
When I was a teenager I was rushed to the ER where I spent a full 24 hours in and out of consciousness and when I was stable enough I was moved up to ICU where I spent a few weeks. My parents were told I might not make it so at my bedside they held my hand and waited. So when I see those news feeds scrolling through my social, I ache for the families less fortunate than mine. It’s because of organizations like Encircle that we are able to spread love, knowledge and courage in preventing yet another death or another person left on the streets with nowhere to call home. Its places like this that shape the LGBT community and take a scary situation and help turn it into something positive.”
