We are founded from the belief that there are so many reasons to live as oppose to die. This campaign started by promoting 13 general reasons to choose life and hold onto hope. From there, we shared them in hopes that people would come up with their very own 13 reasons. Our main mission is to shift how we think about mental illness and suicide. We also celebrate positivity, support those who struggle and encourage people to choose joy in darkness. We also embrace the idea that it is okay to not be okay.
Our goal is to go into programs and schools to start 13 Reason to Fly chapters. These groups would learn about mental illness, how to fight it or help people through it, and how to stay positive.
While we want to support you in whatever way possible, we are not a crisis intervention organization. If you are in crisis please reach out to one of the resources listed on our page. You are worth it
