The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) was founded in 1987 by a group of experts on suicide who wanted to create a organization to fund research in suicide prevention.
Education and research about depression and suicide are fundamental to the AFSP purpose. Grant awards are given to those involved in suicide research. A current campaign to increase suicide awareness is a public service announcement called "Suicide Shouldn't be a Secret". Annual walks called "Out of the Darkness" raise funds for suicide prevention efforts and research.
AFSP has a number of suicide prevention programs aimed at various populations such as teenagers, and college students, people in medical professions, and other high-risk groups. http://www.afsp.org

Living Philanthropic was founded in April 2010 as one man’s mission to give to charity everyday for a year. This mission is built on a belief that you don't have to be rich in dollars to make a difference; you only need to be rich in spirit. After completing his 365 day mission, the spirit of giving everyday carries on through his friends and in his mission to continue his micro-philanthropy for a second year.
