Because no story should be left untold...
Suicide is so much more than the loss of a life.
It’s the loss of all the experiences, events and adventures that life allows people to have. Suicide leaves behind a trail of heartbreak, manifested in the dreams and aspirations shared with friends and family that will never come to fruition. Unfinished plans. Untold stories.
And it’s an outrage.
Based on true accounts, Unfinished Plans is a fundraising campaign we have created with the aim of helping continue the vital work of HOPELINEUK, by highlighting the real lifesaving value that our service offers people. And during these challenging times, the support HOPELINEUK provides is needed now more than ever.
The first chapter in our campaign is a short film that highlights the plans and ambitions that a suicide survivor – Paul – had in place with his friends and family, around the time he suffered difficulties and contemplated taking his own life. It was thanks to HOPELINEUK that he was able to continue his story.
Because no story should be left untold.
Suicide can affect anyone, regardless of background. As the Unfinished Plans campaign progresses new stories will be shared that tell of the dreams and aspirations that were shared by people from different walks of life, and how HOPELINEUK allowed them to continue their own stories.
COVID-19 is having a devastating effect on mental health and wellbeing in our society, so our campaign’s goal is to raise £100,000 for HOPELINEUK – enough to support 20,000 life-saving conversations during the challenging months ahead.
If you would like to help continue the vital work of HOPELINEUK, simply text UNFINISHED to 70085 to donate £5 (texts cost £5 plus your standard network charge). Just £5 is enough for one potentially life-saving conversation, so donations have a genuine impact on the work we do.
