To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) is an interfaith,[1] American non-profit organization[2] which

aims to present hope for people struggling with addiction, depression, self injury, and thoughts of

suicide while also investing directly into treatment and recovery. Based in Melbourne, Florida,

TWLOHA seeks to connect people to treatment centers, websites, books, support groups, and other

resources.[3] TWLOHA also encourages people to have honest conversations about these issues, to

live in community.
A large portion of the work is dedicated to bridging the gap between traditional treatment (i.e.

rehab, counseling, helplines) and the lives of people who need help. Examples of this include music

festivals and tours, social networking sites, and schools and universities.[citation needed]

Wanting to support existing professional help organizations rather than replace them, TWLOHA also

sends a portion of donations directly to such causes as Hopeline, InTheRooms.com, S.A.F.E.

Alternatives, Minding Your Mind, and (in Australia) Kids Help Line.
The group’s main exposure comes from musicians and bands who wear the organization’s distinctive T

-shirts in photographs and performances, however it has recently gained more and more public

exposure through merchandise and public community websites such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and

Tumblr. TWLOHA had a booth at every stop at Vans Warped Tour for the past five years[timeframe?].
