Brothers Charity of the Quarter

Here at Brothers Leather Supply Co., we consider ourselves a family. We truly care about each other and feel we reflect that in many aspects of our business, but we also care about those who struggle, those who have lost, and those who continue to fight for their lives daily. We want to reflect that in our business by donating a portion of our sales to select charities that we feel strongly connected to every quarter.

Our charity of choice this quarter was the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention , or AFSP. As a volunteer and advocate for AFSP myself, and with some of us personally affected by the aftermath of suicide, we strongly believe that what is being done at AFSP is extremely important. For those who may not know what this foundation does, here are a few points to explain their work (cited from their website):

- AFSP funds research to improve interventions, train clinicians in suicide prevention, and advocate for government policies that will save lives.

- AFSP works to encourage schools, workplaces and communities to make mental health a priority and find better ways to reach out to those who suffer from mental health issues.

- AFSP has chapters all over the country working to help people affected by suicide, or considering suicide, out of the darkness. Each chapter trains people affected by suicide to help others who are suffering from loss or considering taking their own lives.

This list is just a summation of the wonderful work being done at AFSP; we’re happy to be a part of saving lives and making others feel like, they too, are part of a family. A portion of every purchase made at Brothers Leather Supply Co. will be donated to give people hope and light at the end of a very dark tunnel. We appreciate your business and your help in fighting the good fight- the fight for life.

Peace & Love,

Laura Henschke
Executive Assistant
