The Morgan Beverly Suicide Prevention Foundation, Inc. was formed by the family of Morgan Beverly, who ended her 16-year old life by suicide in January, 2009. We are a community-based organization whose goal is to provide adequate resources to those contemplating or affected by suicide.
Happy New Year!
01/25/2013 will mark 4 years since Morgan’s death. I wanted to Thank each one of you who have continued to support the MBSPF. I cannot believe where we have come from in these 4 years. I think I have sat back this year in my work with the foundation to give myself time to let it sink in that Morgan is not coming back. I always appreciate your kind words and encouragement; they keep me fueled sometimes when all I have is fumes to run on. So thank you!
We have some exciting things coming up with the foundation that I wanted to share with you. First, I am very proud and excited to let you know that we are sponsoring the funds so that the Chesapeake Life Center can put on a large event and bring in an internationally known speaker and author from Australia, Dr. Diana Sands, who has the publication “Red Chocolate Elephants”. This will be a big event to be held in the spring. They have asked me to say a few words, so I am sure the right words will come to me….
Also, a big supporter of MBSPF salon Split Ends is working on a big outdoor festival for Severna Park on May 4th (they are looking for vendors, and donations for raffles, etc. Contact me if you have any interest) All proceeds will go to Morgan’s Foundation. My personal goal is not to have any other Mom, Dad, brother or sister, have to go through what we did or have to live in the world we now live in. Life sure does march on in a cruel way to families that are survivors of suicide.
Please continue to come out to the 4th Tuesday of every month to Ledo’s in Severna Park and dine in or carry out. (Must say you are with the Foundation) MBSPF was the 2nd largest fundraising group for them last year. Thank you!
We are usually there and love to see everyone. Teen suicide is a horrid subject we know. So many times people turn away from us because they don’t want to talk about it. We NEED to continue the conversation. It could be your child, or your child’s friend. I want to stop it first. I love you all and give big Thanks, more than you could ever realize. Here is to a good year for Morgan’s Foundation, so we may continue down this path she put us on and give our support to this subject.
Eat at Ledo Pizza Severna Park on the 4th Tuesday of each month anytime after 4 p.m. and a portion of the profit will go towards funding the foundation. Be sure to mention you are there to support the foundation!
