Break Through The Static

There is a new organization called Break Through The Static that was created to support teenagers who have been affected by suicide, and has one of the coolest looking web site's I have seen in quite a while!

This non-profit organization is brand new but will support the forgotten teenage victims of suicide. Break Through The Static plans to launch their first week-long action-packed camp in San Francisco this summer (2010).

Static camp will be a safe place where teens will kick back, have fun, make new friends, and be around others who can relate to their loss. Teens will be "challenged by choice" to participate in outdoor activities, water sports, rock climbing, and rope courses. They also can attend workshops by graffiti artists, videographers, poets, and DJs, as well as counselors and mental health professionals who will help them find outlets for their grief.

If you want to be involved, please contact Break Through The Static Today at the web site above or call 973-902-2833.
