Need help getting the anti-suicide bears off the ground. Anything that anyone can help with would be greatly appreciated.
The funds that are raised will be used to help pay for funeral expenses for suicide victims and help families take the time to grieve without worry. Our hope is that we can save 100% of the people in crisis and won't need to pay for funerals.
The reason for the bears....I was driving home from work and when I got to Duval and 183 There Research Blvd, there were police and EMTs everywhere. I look over and leaned against a tree covered in blood was what seems to be a dead man. It was surreal....i notified the news department at KVUE news and they advised me that the young man was a suicide victim. I want to create the bears for those in crisis.
I am also doing this for my cousin Charlie. He was more than a cousin he was a brother to me. I wish I had known how he was feeling and could have reached out to him or given him something to hold on to when he was at his darkest hours.
