CBI as a company, individuals within our organization and community members have been greatly affected by people who have committed suicide. It is a huge concern within our community and we as an organization are going to do something about it. This initiative has been in development for the past couple months and we will be working on a strategy to develop this campaign and put it into action. Under the #GivingTuesday national campaign movement, we will launch our fundraiser on Tuesday, November 28, 2017. Following this campaign, we will focus our efforts on an extensive week-long promotion in Spring of 2018 where we will ask the community for involvement and focus on bringing awareness to suicide prevention (at the time of year suicide is most prominent). This first fundraiser is significant because it is CBI’s first-ever large campaign. Please join us as we plan and use our resources to make a difference…
