MINNEAPOLIS ST. PAUL, Nov. 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, Supportstore released the news that, for the first time in 14 years, the Suicide Prevention awareness article page has received the most traffic and sales out of over 300 awareness articles.
Supportstore helps people have more conversations about what matters to them through wearables like bracelets and pins for hundreds of different occasions.
Last year the purple and turquoise There’s Hope There’s Help – Prevent Suicide bracelet was the most requested product.
Ron Reimann, CEO of Supportstore, says: “It saddens us to see this, but it’s a fact and it says something about the state of the world we find ourselves in with the 180+ awareness categories we have in store .”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, someone commits suicide every 11 seconds. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among people aged 10 to 34.
Supportstore sales are often a benchmark to identify the most prevalent social issues. The surge in purple and turquoise suicide prevention items coincided with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, and they remain in high demand. Both the elastic fabric bracelet and the rubber bracelet have the message “There is hope, there is help” along with the suicide prevention hotline 988 on the inside.
As everyone gets back to schools, workplaces and events, Supportstore empowers people with simple objects as conversation starters to raise awareness about suicide and ultimately see it being prevented.
In business since 2005, SupportStore offers over 300 stock items including bracelets, car magnets, lapel pins, oval stickers and embroidered ribbons to help a customer “Scream Out What You Love”™. A portion of each purchase is set aside for customers to donate to charity.
From health issues to various types of cancer, patriotism, Christian items and other awareness topics, SupportStore has perhaps the largest selection of awareness items that are in stock and shipped the same day. On a lighter note, the store also carries holiday magnets, wacky daisy instant carma magnet sets, and other humorous items to spread both smiles and awareness.
