When Wes and Jenna reached out about the logo and web design for Project Hud;Son, I felt immediately connected to this cause and wanted to use my work as a means to give back and make a positive change in the world. It has been one of the greatest honors of my life to be a part of Project Hud;Son and walk a bit of this journey with the Scott family. The love they exemplify for each other and their children is beautiful, beyond words. Just being in the midst of it is a blessing and I receive so much more from them than I could ever give back. I owe Wes and Jenna a million thank you's for reaching out to me that fateful day, because this work has changed my life. I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Hudson before I began working on this foundation but I can say without a doubt that I know him now, and for that I'm eternally grateful.

I lost my favorite uncle, John Vernon White, by suicide in November of 2008. My family did not know he was suffering from depression, mental illness or suicidal thoughts, until the day he completed the act. We had no knowledge of warning signs, we never discussed depression or suicide in our homes, and even after the fact, we still never openly talked about it in depth. This lack of conversation is a prime example of why Project Hud;Son is so important. We must talk about it and stop pretending it's not there. I found healing through Project Hud;Son and the Scott Family. The work we are doing is important and it is impactful. Please help spread the word about Project Hud;Son, share our resources, have a conversation about suicide prevention, tell one person you love them just as they are, love all who cross your path, spread peace wherever you can, be different and be proud that you're different. One small act can make a big impact. I believe one by one, little by little, if we put one foot in front of the other and continue on this journey, together, we can change the world.
