Fundraiser for a 15 year old suicidal girl asks for help


Help this child

She came to her mom and told her that she was thinking of ways to die. Imagine your daughter telling you that.

Then imagine trying to think of a way to help her, knowing you had exhausted all local resources and that financially the next step would likely bankrupt you.

I’ve been there. Right there. No help. No loans. No support. And my child did die by suicide.

I don’t want this family to suffer that. Anything but that. This young lady is currently in treatment now. It couldn’t wait.

I want us to be as comfortable raising money for a child’s mental illness as we are raising funds for a child’s cancer. Both are deadly.

For obvious reasons we cannot share a video of her. This child has asked for help. So I’m asking you. Any amount is appreciated. 

The original letter is here

I want to help this child
