Based in Melbourne, founded in 2006 by Jamie Tworkowski and inspired by his experience supporting a personal friend in the days leading up to her arrival at a treatment centre, To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) is a “movement with purpose nonprofit dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-harm and suicide.

TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire and invest directly in treatment and recovery. In the years since, TWLOHA has gained a national following, with celebrities and endorsements from Miley Cyrus, Jessica Chastain, Liv Tyler, Jared Padelecki and Joaquin Phoenix, among others. According to the TWLOHA website, the nonprofit organization has donated “more than $2.6 million to treatment and recovery and awarded funding to 105 unique counseling organizations and practices.” Known for their self-titled t-shirts that are sold to raise money for the organization, TWLOHA first made waves in the mid-2000s by reaching a young audience who felt connected to their mission and merchandise.

The Space Coast Chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association (FPRA) was founded over 30 years ago and “offers a wide range of professional networking opportunities, professional development programs, and community service projects.” This membership-based organization charges a small annual fee, with scholarships available for those who need help.
