"A few people involved in making this video have had their lives affected by suicide, whether it be a friend or family member. At the end of the video (not to give too much away), we are going to have a little segment where we will show pictures of these people in remembrance. With the pictures it will have their full name, date of birth, and the date they passed away.
"We would also like to invite you to also submit pictures of any friends or family of yours who have taken their lives. So if you have anyone you would like us to memorialize at the end of our video, please send the person's picture, full name, date of birth, and the date they passed away to firstname.lastname@example.org.
