Every day, 22 veterans die by suicide.
What’s Your 22? is a campaign to bring awareness of veteran suicides.
You can help by answering the question, “What’s your 22?”
Come up with a way to do 22 things in the year 2022. For example, do 22 pushups, volunteer 22 hours at a homeless shelter, donate $22 to this campaign, read 22 self-help books, or give up potato chips for 22 days. The list is endless!
Upload your photo and tell us why you chose to bring awareness of veteran suicides.
Four Quad-Cities colleges – Black Hawk College, Eastern Iowa Community Colleges, St. Ambrose University and Western Illinois University – are teaming up for What’s Your 22?
The money raised by this campaign will be used for projects and programs for the Quad Cities Student Veterans Advocacy Group.
If you are in crisis and want to talk to someone, call or text the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at this three digit number, 988. The service is free, confidential, and available 24/7.
What is your 22? Submit a video, photo or link showcasing your challenge. 22 push-ups? 22 days of jogging? Or simply tell us what you’re going to do.
Donate: Don’t have time to participate? You can still donate to the 22in22for22 campaign.
