Overcoming the Darkness 2021

Hi, I'm Darren Marlar from the Weird Darkness podcast.
Every October I dedicate my podcast to raising funds for organizations that help people who struggle with depression (as I do). This year the amount raised will be divided equally between 7Cups , iFred , and the Suicide Prevention Lifeline .  I'll close out the fundraiser at the end of October and announce how much we raised in the podcast, on the website, and through social media!
A gift of any amount will bring us that much closer to our goal - and helps that many more people who are affected by depression. So no gift is too small! And if you feel you want to do more, you can share this campaign with others and ask them to give.
We all know someone who struggles with depression - whether we know it or not. It's something those who suffer deal with in silence, in the shadows. But these organizations are working to make it easier for those in the darkness to come into the light, to find help, and to learn they are not alone and that there are ways to overcome the darkness and live normal lives.
I'm evidence of that.
Please give what you can, share this campaign with others, and I'll see you over on the podcast!
