Get @AgainstSuicide to NYC! :)

Hi guys! My name is Carrie Shade and I'm the creator of the Against Suicide campaign, or @AgainstSuicide on Twitter. I work everyday to not only help and guide people through their difficult times, but also let anyone and everyone know how serious suicide and its surrounding factors are. I'm a finalist for the Activism Shorty Award, which is an awards show that is centered around the use of social media. I can't even put into words how grateful I am to be in this postion, to reach out to as many people as I do, and to be able to potentially win this award for the second year in a row. The award ceremony is in New York City on April 8th. Currently, neither my family or I have money to pay for me to attend the ceremony or pay for train tickets, food, and hotel reservations. so that's where I need YOUR help. I would love to be able to go on this trip for a few reasons. Firstly, I want to be able to spread my message to other people who use social media as an everyday outlet. Second, over the past year, I've created a few projects that I would love to share with these people as well. I now have a merchandise store to help spread a little bit of awareness (see link below). I also started a little project called #ProjectLG, which is to help people inspire others, even if they thought they couldn't. Any little donation will help. I'm trying to get a job so that I won't have to rely completely on donations, but I don't know just yet. Also, any money that is left over after the trip will be used to have giveaways for the t-shirts in my merchandise store. Thank you all so much for your time :)
