WE UNPLUG FOR THE CAUSE
- LITTLETON, CO -
**Offline October was created by 25 students from multiple schools after deciding that enough was enough with suicides**
Offline October is a challenge for people to give up social media for the month of October to support teen suicide prevention.
Recently, the Littleton community has experienced a number of teen suicides. We believe that social media has a negative impact on today’s youth and has contributed to many recent suicides. The challenge is meant for people to realize the importance of human relationships and the happiness that can come from direct human interaction.
Social media has become a dictating force in people’s lives. We hope that from this challenge people will maintain and manage stronger friendships, develop face to face communication skills, and become happier in their overall well-being.
