Ellie Rose wrote on her GoFundMe:
‘Hi, my name is Ellie Rose Henry; I am a 15-year-old singer/songwriter from Derry/Donegal. Recently I wrote a song about mental health, suicide prevention and addiction to try and help people who are suffering from these illnesses and raise awareness.
I wanted to reach out and let all generations know they are not alone and there is help from these fantastic charities. I’ve set up this GoFundMe page to help the charities supporting me on this song. The following charities include:
Foyle-Search And Rescue
I’ve chosen to support these charities due to the huge amount of work they do in the city, saving the lives of people and families. I would be most grateful for any donation towards these charities, no matter how big or small.
l. It can make a difference to these non-funded organisations that do a lot of work regarding mental health / suicide prevention & addiction. I hope my song and video can help raise awareness and relate to others suffering to let them know they are not alone and help is always there.’
