Smiles Thru Lindsey
"In September of 2015, Lindsey took her own life.
During Lindsey’s lifetime, she told her father that she wanted to start a foundation that would raise money to help children, teens and young adults who are fighting mental illness but do not have the financial support required to get the proper help needed.
Her family is committed to making her dream a reality.
Just weeks after losing Lindsey, the More’s made a promise to help others in Lindsey’s name. With the help of their family and community, they developed the Smiles Thru Lindsey Foundation. The Foundation is committed to providing mental health supports and proactive, early intervention for youth in Red Deer.
