Turn-A-Frown Around Foundation, Inc.
June 10, 2011

I've been working with Drew Horn and TAFA for over a year now. I initially began by working on a book project with Drew. But I quickly fell in love with the organization and its mission and now I am a advocate and help TAFA all around. Ending loneliness has an easy fix and if we all take a little time out to help someone else in need, the world would be a different place. Its absolutely beautiful to bring joy into a person's life who is in pain and I thank TAFA for showing me the way. Drew & all of TAFA's volunteers are passionate and determined to end loneliness! I'm so happy that I got involved and always will encourage others to do so as well.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being a Forever Friend to individuals that are lonely in psychiatric wards & motivating and recruiting others to volunteer and join the movement - it's extremely rewarding for myself! the joy it brings to you is hands down amazing when you're able to simply put a smile on someone's face that is in such a difficult place. It's not only therapy and medicine people with illness (or anyone for that matter) need in life; having a friend is a huge key in recovery and happiness.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give the organization funding! The organization is quickly getting more and more recognition and definitely needs a full time staff! With a little more employees working regularly, TAFA would have the man-power & organization it needs to make huge strides in the mental health field. It's just too simple.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & Working on a book about Drew & TAFA, start the first smile station on a college campus - montclair state university (Everyone should start one!!).
