The Non-profit organization To Write Love on Her Arms is taking their annual event, HEAVY AND LIGHT, to cities across America. HEAVY AND LIGHT is a special evening of songs, conversation, and hope. Throughout the tour, there will be intimate, acoustic performances from the likes of Jon Foreman (of Switchfoot) & Fiction Family, Christina Perri, Now, Now, Will Anderson (of Parachute), Aaron Gillespie (of The Almost), Bryce Avary (of The Rocket Summer), Anthony Raneri (of Bayside), Noah Gundersen, The Lone Bellow, Satellite and award-winning spoken word poet Anis Mojgani.
TWLOHA founder Jamie Tworkowski says, "HEAVY AND LIGHT has been our favorite night of the year. Up to now, it's been just one night each January at the House of Blues in Orlando. We've seen people travel from across America and beyond to be there, and we've heard people call it the best night of their life. We're beyond thrilled to bring Heavy And Light to cities across the country, and we're doing it with the hope and goal of changing lives."
HEAVY AND LIGHT's main purpose is to encourage people through great music and powerful words to get the help they need. Everyone who attends a show will also leave with a list of local resources-places where they can get help for issues such as depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide.
To Write Love on Her Arms is dedicated to finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire, and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery. Since its start in 2006, TWLOHA has donated over $1,000,000 directly into treatment and recovery and responded to more than 170,000 messages and emails from more than 100 countries.
Last year, TWLOHA was awarded a $1 million grant at the first American Giving Awards presented by Chase Bank on NBC. They will be using this generous award to fund the nationwide HEAVY AND LIGHT tour. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, December 14 and can be purchased here.
