DiPalma, Hoops Club To Promote 'P.S. I Love You Day'

She'll be handing out purple ribbons at the boys basketball game Tuesday night.

Brooke DiPalma is spreading hope to those suffering from depression. And Tuesday at the varsity boys basketball game, she'll partner up with the West Islip Hoops club and hand out purple ribbons to everyone who attends. Tip-off is at 5:30 p.m. against Walt Whitman. 

DiPalma will also be speaking during halftime to spread her message for P.S. I love you Day!  She's rallying up teachers and students throughout New York to wear something purple on February 10th, to support everyone battling self-inflicting thoughts.  

She also posted a video on YouTube on Jan. 2, which has already collected over 25,000 views (video is attached). 

Please come and support this brave young woman who is making a positive impact on so many people with her plight after losing her father Joseph, then the WI Chamber of Commerce president, to suicide on April of 2010.
