There are two main goals of the Chase 'n' Ricky Foundation: one will be fundraising to benefit mental health services and suicide prevention efforts, and the other, campaigning for public awareness. It is our hope that we can raise society's understanding of mental diseases and the debilitating depressions that many suffer. One thing every person should take note of is suicide is as equally preventable as it is devastating. We need to change the way we respond to those at risk exhibiting the classic signs, as well as the signs that may be clouded by drug use. People tend to be so closed off to suicide until that reality is upon them simply because they don't know how to react. In fact, we can react by educating the public and making this an issue we can all be more comfortable approaching. We believe we can help those experiencing depression overcome the shame and alienation they experience. Most of the funds raised by the Chase 'n' Ricky Foundation will increase the number of well-educated and well-trained counselors of which we are in need. We will keep the "fun" in fundraising by sharing $2 bills with our information on them to get people to visit our website. Once they on our page, we will have $2 challenges. Once challenged and donated, we'll encourage them to pass the $2 bill to someone else so that they might be challenged as well.
We are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that is fundraising for suicide prevention and mental health awareness. Your donations will help us pay for counselors to treat those suffering from this invisible burden.
Wear a t-shirt and paracord jewelry that supports the cause to help those who are depressed and need assistance from trained professionals. Our clothing will help end the stigma attached to mental illness.
