International Association for Suicide Prevention to Hold Facebook Fan-raising Weekend

The IASP will hold the first-ever Facebook Fan-Raising weekend on March 13th and 14th to help increase awareness of suicide prevention locally and worldwide and to raise 50,000 fans in honour of the organization's 50th anniversary.

A first-ever IASP Facebook Fan-Raising Weekend will be held on March 13th and 14th, 2010.

The purpose of this event is to honour the achievements of this esteemed organization and to increase suicide prevention awareness locally and worldwide.

On the weekend of March 13th and 14th, participants will use the official 50th IASP image as their personal Facebook profile image and will also encourage their friends to become IASP Facebook Fans.

The goal of this event is to tap into the 300 million active Facebook users and to encourage .00016% or 50,000 fans to support the work of the IASP.

Each year as many as 1,000,000 people are estimated to die by suicide across the globe; many, many more make nonfatal attempts. We cannot underestimate the impact these fatal and nonfatal attempts have on loved ones, friends and associates.

If you are a Facebook user, we invite you to support the IASP and become a Facebook Fan of the IASP.
