Mark Joel Smith was a vibrant, brave, and loving soul. His friends are raising money to celebrate his life and his memory.

Money raised through this page will first allow Mark's friends to put together memorial services to remember the impact his life had on ours. Additional funds not used for his memorial expenses will be donated to the "It Gets Better Project" which helps to promote tolerance and respect for bullied LGBT teens. We believe that this organization would be close to Mark's heart. Mark always had the courage to be his true self, even though it was not always accepted by others. He knew that with the love and support of his friends, it would always get better. We are sure he would like so many other struggling LGBT individuals to know that there is a community of love and support if you open your heart, as Mark always did.
