Our story

Elijah was a non-binary teenager who struggled with mental illness and the repercussions of not fitting the "norm" -dealing with bullying and disrespect. Elijah handled this all with grace, until tragically they became overwhelmed and took their own life. Elijah was a kind hearted person, always ready and willing to help. They helped in the community alongside other volunteers. They enjoyed music and were very excited that vinyl was making a comeback. The were a proud member of the LGBTQIA+ community, always championing the cause. They were musically savvy and self-taught on a number of stringed instruments. They were a talented artist with a passion for pen and paper. Movies and TV series, occupied some of their downtime, with a passion for horror. Other passions included their cat Mocha, their beloved dog Kentucky and the many chickens, ducks and geese that they tended. Elijah struggled for a long time and they tried hard, ultimately losing this battle. Now we are given the opportunity to try and help others, through a scholarship. This will also allow Elijah, whom we so cherished, to live on! Our goal is to help those touched by mental health concerns, suicide and/or members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

Our goal

This fund will be used to fund a scholarship that is currently active on Bold.org (Elijah's Helping Hand) the goal is to fund it in perpetuity. Our goal is to help those touched by mental health concerns, suicide and/or members of the LGBTQIA+ community.
