Friends who have FLIPPED THE SWITCH:

  • As a future healthcare professional, I now understand what not to say to someone who has lost a loved one to suicide. I also never thought about the connotation of the word "commit". I now understand that somone doesn't commit suicide, rather they loose their life. Thank you so much for letting me come to your group and experience the feelings one may experience. You truly are a special group.
  • Your foundation gave me just what I needed to become more at peace with myself by giving me the opportunity to help others. I seriously can't thank you all enough for giving me the opportunity to work with you all. Thank you for everything.
  • I lost my son to suicide which was a huge shock and has left me totally broken. I have now made it my mission to help raise awareness about mental illness suicide bullying and grief following suicide in my son's honor.


Wow! We are feeling so blessed at KSF this morning. Check out the amazing office supply donations we have received today! Many thanks to our Board Member Mary Jo Guinn and to her friends who have been so generous to support us through Mary Jo's KSF office supply drive! There are so many ways to support a non profit. Volunteering and donating items like these help us to keep our overhead low so that our dollars raised directly support our families! Thank you to everyone who supports us! We could not continue our passion project without you. ... See MoreSee Less
