LUMINOSITY CREATIVE STUDIO IS HEAVILY INVOLVED IN THE GLOBAL CHARITY CAMPAIGN, KNOWN AS 'SELFIES FOR LIFE'. CO-FOUNDER OF THE CHARITY ORGANIZATION THAT LAUNCHED THE SUCCESSFUL CAMPAIGN TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT SUICIDE PREVENTION, REINIER KROL AND THE LUMINOSITY CREATIVE STUDIO TEAM, ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CHARITY CAMPAIGN'S MEDIA CONTENT AND VIDEO PRODUCTION.

THE SELFIES FOR LIFE CAMPAIGN IS A GLOBAL CHARITY INITIATIVE TO COMBAT THE DEVASTATING EPIDEMIC OF YOUTH SUICIDE, WITH THREE PRIMARY GOALS: RAISE GLOBAL AWARENESS ABOUT TEENAGE SUICIDE ACROSS THE GLOBE, RAISE MUCH-NEEDED FUNDS TO COMBAT THIS EPIDEMIC AND TO PROVIDE A PORTAL OF HOPE FOR ALL THOSE WHO MAY BE FEELING DOWN, LOST, AFRAID OR ALONE, BY CREATING A SELFIES WALL WITH MESSAGES OF INSPIRATION, LOVE AND SUPPORT FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD.

THE SELFIES FOR LIFE CAMPAIGN WAS LAUNCHED TO RAISE AWARENESS, AROUND THE WORLD, ABOUT THE DAILY STRUGGLES YOUNG PEOPLE - OF ALL CULTURES AND BACKGROUNDS - FACE AND THE DEVASTATING EFFECT LEADING SOME YOUNG PEOPLE INTO THE DARKNESS OF DEPRESSION, SELF-HARM AND TRAGICALLY, INTO TAKING THEIR OWN LIFE, AT SUCH A YOUNG AGE. WE BELIEVE THAT IT IS UNACCEPTABLE THAT SUICIDE IS THE SECOND LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH FOR PEOPLE UNDER THE AGE OF 25. WE BELIEVE IT IS UNACCEPTABLE THAT MORE TEENAGERS AND YOUNG ADULTS DIE FROM SUICIDE EACH YEAR THAN FROM CANCER, HEART DISEASE, AIDS, BIRTH DEFECTS, STROKE, PNEUMONIA, INFLUENZA, AND CHRONIC LUNG DISEASE, COMBINED.

EVERY 4 MINUTES, A YOUNG PERSON TRIES TO KILL THEMSELVES. EVERY HOUR... A YOUNG PERSON SUCCEEDS. WE CAN STOP THIS! PLEASE SUPPORT THE SELFIES FOR LIFE CAMPAIGN.
