Celebrate With Me! I need YOUR help!

September is national RECOVERY MONTH!

To honor this, Shining Strong (my non-profit) is making a video celebrating recovery.

You may remember the video I made when Shining Strong launched:

The focus of that video is to show women they are NOT alone if they are struggling with addiction/alcoholism.

This time around, I would like to focus on RECOVERY, and I need your help!

If you are in recovery, love someone in recovery or struggling to recover, would you send me a photo of yourself holding a sign (like in the video above) with a message of hope?  You could talk about the things (or people) that are in your life now because you're in recovery, hold up a picture of something you have, or feel, now that you're sober.  Your message could be a word, a phrase, a feeling or something that someone told you that helps you stay sober.

If you love someone in recovery, write what it's like now that they are sober, or anything else that shows how life has changed with a sober loved one.

If you're struggling, you could write a sign that talks about why you want to get sober. 

We want to show the world that WE DO RECOVER.

There are many ways to do this anonymously, if you would like. You could hold the sign in front of your face, write the words somewhere on your body, or show the sign standing alone or in some other creative way.

If you feel comfortable showing your face that is fantastic, too!

If you don't know what to say, just strike a pose!  Show us your strength, courage and hope in some fun way (making a muscle, perhaps? Or doing a cartwheel?  Or loving on your family?).   Or send a little video (there won't be sound playing in the final cut) that is 10 seconds or less -- doing something goofy, or with your loved ones ... the sky is the limit.

Here's the rub -- I need these QUICKLY.  :)  The deadline to submit a photo or video is SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 8th at 8pm.   

The email to send them is, with the subject line "Shining Strong Video".

PLEASE help Shining Strong show the world that there is hope.  We are determined to bust down the stigma of alcoholism and addiction, and showing your beautiful, shining faces and messages of hope is more powerful than anything I could ever write.

Thank you SO much. Email me if you have questions!
