Thomas would have been 18 on Monday, February 13, 2017. Sadly, he lost his battle with depression and we can’t celebrate with him. We can however, honor him and the countless others that have lost their lives to suicide and help those with similar struggles before it is too late.
For 18 days starting on February 13th, please tell one person each day that #YouMatter. It can be on social media, or in person. It is more important to get the positive message to people. Another way to also honor Thomas’ memory is to also give $18 (or a multiple of) to one of the suggested charities that are working to prevent suicide.
Finally, Thomas, you matter to all of us, we miss you, we love you.
How you can help: A non-tax deductible gift to the Thomas B. Zarola Memorial Fund. Funds will be used to provide scholarships for Acton-Boxborough High School Seniors and to raise awareness of depression in the Acton, MA community:
