A free screening of the movie “Renee” will be held at Studio Movie Grill in Houston, Texas today, April 28 at 3:30 p.m.
The movie “Renee” is based on the life of Renee Yohe, the girl who inspired the non-profit movement To Write Love on Her Arms.
Renee (played by Kat Dennings) is a 19-year-old girl who is struggling with addiction, depression and self-injury. Jamie Tworkowski (played by Chad Michael Murray) reaches out to Renee and offers support throughout her journey to recovery.

Yohe’s story is what led Tworkowski to create TWLOHA; a non-profit movement “dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide,” as stated on the TWLOHA website.
“I think that TWLOHA is a good cause to support because it helps people everywhere to know that they are not alone, and that no matter how bad things are, there is someone out there that is willing to help you and save you from the darkest moments of your life,” said Janella Huelga, a TWLOHA supporter.
Huelga was at the Switchfoot show where the lead singer; Jon Foreman was the first person to wear a TWLOHA t-shirt and spoke about the organization. Tworkowski talks about the impact this had on the organization in the video below.
