PHOENIX, Dec. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In the last ten years, suicides among young people between the ages of 10 and 17 have skyrocketed by 70%, according to the CDC. It is now the 2nd leading cause of death for kids ages 10-24, and it kills more young people than cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, stroke, pneumonia, influenza and chronic lung disease COMBINED. In the United States, someone kills themselves every 16 minutes. Suicide is an epidemic.
As suicide reaches record levels in the United States and around the world, web based non-profit, Death2Life Revolution, has launched the Save a Life Project to engage the public in funding 24-hour counseling and online intervention for people contemplating suicide.
Death2Life Revolution launched the Save a Life Project. This gives donors an opportunity to fund this 24/7 counseling and online presence so that the intervention can remain FREE to the many daily worldwide site users. Donors can sponsor one teen's intervention for as little as $1 a day.

Death2Life Revolution provides help to hurting teens and adults. They offer free, online counseling through chat or texting on their website, www.D2LRev.com. Users can remain anonymous, which has led to an increase in site traffic in recent years. The site counsels 300-600 young people a day who have found D2L by Googling "ways to kill themselves," or some near variation of such a search.
Death2Life President Mario D'Ortenzio says, "Kids who are suicidal need to know that someone cares about them and what they are going through. They need to know that they will not always feel this way—that even though they may feel sad today, they will feel happy again. We are here for them to give them hope, so they can hang on for that day." D2L stands in the gap for kids who are feeling helpless and hopeless.
