'NEVER GIVE UP' was written from Beano's own experience of suicidal thoughts. He feels the words could have 'saved' him in his darkest moments. He now believes that the words can give hope to others. That the song can 'reach out' to those who may be going through a tough time. Your donation will help us to support those who are close to suicide.
