Put faces to those that are at risk and see past the numbers.Ask questions so people personalize who they are working to save…

Whose life will you SAVE! It’s the people you love...

It is your mom and dad who always came to your soccer games? 

Your grandma who always sends a birthday card?It’s your HS art teacher who always believed in you?
Your college professor who opened your love of psychology? 

Is it your aunt who always made the best cookies?

 Is it the guy you had a crush on in high school who has asthma?

Is it your neighbor who always has pretty flowers in their yard and waves to you when you run?

It is your friend’s sister who has diabetes?

Your friend who is already battling cancer and trying to hang on to every last moment with her kids?
It could even be you….Whose life will you save?
Help people make the connection between the joy and richness of their lives as a result of the people in it— 

 People won’t know when they are sick and the chain of events of going out for one unimportant thing-- one more trip to store, party-- could be the very thing that brings grief and loss in your circle or that of your friends and your community.

We need these people - they aren’t just numbers they are your memories and your life. Stay in to save them- We would not think to take someone’s life, but now our carelessness, or ignorance will. Be a real superhero. #STAYINTOSAVE

Welcome to the challenge Leslie Graff . I like how your idea can help communicate better why this is everyone's responsibility and how everyone is affected. Reminds me of Do it for Derek/Deborah by Jordan Rodger . I'm curios your thoughts on this Madalyn Bates
