I wanted to share us handing over the funds we raised at the convention to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) WV Chapter. We were able to raise $1,056 between our charity auction and raffle. I wanted to thank everyone who helped out.
I want to thank all the celebrities who donated along with Pithy Production, the Board Room, Kanawha Valley Astronomical Society, and anyone I forgot. Especially anyone I forgot.
We have already started collecting more items for next year. I am already excited about what we have gotten.
I really want Mental Health to be one of the foundations of this convention and everyone has been very supportive of it.
If you want to keep helping the AFSP, they have two Out of the Darkness Campus Walk coming up. The Out of the Darkness Campus Walks are the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s signature student fundraising series, designed to engage youth and young adults in the fight to prevent suicide, a leading cause of death.

The other one is at West Virginia State University in Institute on April 27th. Registration at noon and walk at 12:30pm. Contact Kellie Toledo at email@example.com for more information.
