To Write Love on Her Arms is a nonprofit organization founded by Jamie Tworkowski is 2007. It started out as a simple desire to help a friend, Renee Yohe, who was struggling with depression, self-injury, addiction, and suicidal thoughts. Tworkowski began selling t-shirts in an effort to raise money to pay for Yohe's treatment, and he later named the story "To Write Love on Her Arms."
Today, TWLOHA sells clothing, books, accessories and more to spread mental health and addiction awareness, and to give hope to those who are struggling. Their merchandise is often designed with powerful messages or phrases such as, "And So I Kept Living" and "Love Is Still The Most Powerful Force On The Planet."
