$1,000 for 1,000 “Likes”
We invite you & your friends to support our campaign to raise money and awareness for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention by liking us and sharing us on Facebook. For every new “like” we receive, we will donate $1 ($1,000 max) to the AFSP. We hope that you will join us in our campaign to save lives and that you will encourage your online friends to do so as well. As our campaign progresses, we promise to provide everyone with regular updates on Facebook regarding our success. Last year, we ran a similar campaign for the Alzheimer’s Association and generated over 450 “likes” and contributed $500. This year, we hope to double that.
Campaigning for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
Our goal at the Stewart Inn is to provide an unforgettable guest experience. As Innkeepers that is our highest priority. Yet it is also our belief that with great fortune comes great opportunity and great responsibility to give back. Our success should not only advance our lives but that of others as well.
This holiday season, in honor of Robbie Granger, his parents, his brother, our son, David (Robbie’s best friend), and the multitude of others who were and still are affected by Robbie’s loss, we are channeling our charitable efforts towards the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. They are an unbelievable organization dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy, and to reaching out to people with mental disorders and those impacted by suicide. There is so much more to be done. We invite you to join us and help bring suicide out of the darkness.
A little about Robbie …
Robbie Granger was an awesome kid. He was kind, polite, quick witted, fun, honest, trustworthy, conscientious, intelligent, thoughtful, good looking and ridiculously talented. He was genuinely an inspiration to others. He was a wonderful leader. He was principled. He was hardworking. He was highly accomplished – H.S. class valedictorian, student body President, National Merit Finalist, etc. He was just about everything you would want your kid to be. Most importantly to us, of course, was that Robbie was our son, David’s, best friend, virtually from the day they met as three year olds. What a blessing!
Robbie was a beacon of light and brought this world great joy. His loss is hard to explain and even harder to accept. Robbie will forever be missed, but left us and this world better for having known him.
