In honor of Kimberly's 31st birthday, we are raising funds in support of an amazing organization, Suicide Prevention & Crisis Service. SPCS offers critical support and constructive responses to crisis and trauma. You can learn more about their mission and work here: http://ithacacrisis.org/
Kim was a fierce mental health advocate even as she struggled with her own mental health. Her goal in life was to inspire others who might be going through similar traumas and struggles. We raise this money on behalf of her legacy to continue to advocate for others even though she is no longer here with us physically. Her memory, vibrant personality, and brightness live on.
100% of the proceeds will go to the Suicide Prevention & Crisis Service in Ithaca, NY to support others in crisis.
With much love,
Kimberly's family and friends
