Palouse Advocacy League plans three distribution days


July 26, 2018 | View PDF

Palouse Advocacy League will offer literature, posters, refrigerator magnets, stickers, pens and children’s temporary tattoos all for the purpose of preventing suicide and reducing the stigma surrounding mental illness July 25, 26 and 27 at nine businesses. They will be in three locations each day for three days in a row.

The league was previously called The #3 Memorial Fund which was created after the death last January of WSU quarterback Tyler Hilinski who took his own life.

The league will also launch its new line of logo on T-shirts, tank tops and hoodies. It features a P.A.L. dragonfly designed by local artist Cori Dantini. The colors of the dragonfly represent the nationally recognized colors for suicide awareness and mental health awareness.

All of the organization’s adult sized shirts read “You are not alone. Sometimes asking for help is the bravest move you can make.”

P.A.L. co-founder and chair Shelley Calissendorff said they decided “it really says exactly what we wanted to convey to our communities.”

The children’s shirt also features the Dantini artwork, but instead reads, “I am Kind. I am Loved. I am Important!”

Cougar Country Drive-In, Rico’s Pub, Banyans on the Ridge, Sella’s Calzones and Pizza, Pups and Cups Café, the Palouse Caboose, One World Café, the Breakfast Club and the Moscow Food Co-op will participate.
