SNAP: Stories for Living

Share your story and uplift other Survivors for the holidays!

SNAP Network is pleased to announce the 1st Annual "SNAP: Stories for Living" holiday outreach and healing program.  Your stories will enable us to be united in spirit this holiday season.

Knowing how hard the holiday season is for many survivors, we created this program as a way for Survivors to uplift and inspire each other during the holidays by sharing stories of hope, determination, justice, love and healing.

You can participate by sharing one of your stories with us by December 7, and then by voting online for the story that touched, moved and inspired you most by December 14. 

Votes will be tallied and the Top Ten Stories will be awarded a $100 cash prize and will be published and acknowledged on this website December 24, 2007.
