SAVE-Suicide Awareness Voices of Education, located in Bloomington, MN has been a nonprofit organization that we as a salon/business has been supporting for 5 years. Thru every lipstick sold, we donate 10% of all sales at year end to SAVE as it is used for local education: students, teachers, clergy, fire, police the community as well as the public.
I, the owner of Rue 48 salon appreciate and have become aware of the necessity of such a wonderful and educated group of individuals when I was saddened by the sudden death of a very special young woman 5 years ago. The lack of understanding and stigma that was felt by the families as they were left behind was disheartening. SAVE has and will continue to reach to those who have been struck by the death of a suicide as they continue to comfort the community, educate and spread the truth about suicide.
If you feel you know someone that is struggling with depression please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-8255.
