That’s the voice I fall into out there.”
Through the PostSecret books and Warren’s speaking engagements, more than $1 million dollars have been donated to suicide prevention charities. Warren said he hopes the project will allow people to seek the help they need and give a voice to those who need it in order to prevent tragedy.
“We all have secrets and everyday we decide what to do with them,” Warren said.
