We are raising funds and awareness via Shatterproof, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing the devastation that the disease of addiction causes families across the country. We've dedicated our fundraiser to a dear family member who lost her life far too soon, Julie Bonderson Gosselin. Julie was a mother of two and a soon-to-be-grandmother; she was also, most importantly, a human being who struggled like so many others with addiction throughout much of her adult life. In lieu of flowers for Julie's private family funeral service, we are asking for donations to an organization dedicated to removing the stigma against addiction and replacing it with a productive plan for change.
Shatterproof is changing the conversation in this space. They are saving lives by helping pass laws that prevent more of our loved ones from becoming addicted to prescription opioids and supporting first responders who can rescue those who overdose. Your support helps expand their efforts to support prevention, treatment, rescue and recovery of addiction.
Together, we are stronger than addiction. We Are Shatterproof.
