Tie Your Shoes to Fight Depression and Alcoholism

Kreinik has just announced a new product:  four colors of glow-in-the-dark shoelaces made from Kreinik threads.  These honor the life of Charles Austin Kreinik who killed himself last spring, with a portion of each sale to go to organizations that try to help those fighting the demons Charles fought and to help those these unhappy people leave behind when they escape unbearable burdens through suicide.

If you are looking for something different for stocking stuffers, I encourage you to purchase some of these.  One of my brothers killed himself in 1999 after a twenty-year battle with alcoholism, depression and physical ailments.  It's about time we did a little something to help those who are still struggling.
