BENEFITING: American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
"The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is a non-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy, and to reaching out to people with mental disorders and those impacted by suicide."
An organization such as this one has a sole purpose of helping people who are in desperate situations. What better way to remember Angela than to support the AFSP, which saves lives each day, giving many people another chance at life that they might not have otherwise had.
"AFSP's main objectives include:
-Funding scientific research
-Providing education to professionals
-Raising awareness and informing the public about mood disorders and suicide prevention
-Advocating for government legislation that promotes suicide prevention efforts, and
-Providing resources for families and individuals affected by suicide"
It's fair to say that we want to honor our friend in any and every way possible, and I believe that she would be so thankful knowing just how much of an impact she had on so many people during the little time she was here. She just didn't realize it.
Angela was conflicted for quite some time, and there are many others just like her in the same types of desperate situations. Together we can make a difference. Let's support this cause in Angela's memory, and hopefully there will be more and more who are given another chance before they leave this world.

Crowdrise.com is a fundraising company that has very minimal fees, although they do have some. You can find a link to their FAQ page here.
And thanks so much for your love and support. This is for you Angela. So many miss you. And we always will.
