8 teens from Southern Wisconsin were brought together to talk about choices they have made as teenagers and what helps them get the thru the rough times of the teens years. Jacob’s SWAG Foundation Inc. continues to strive in helping teens to make good life choices and for them to know that the sun will shine tomorrow. The teen years are hard, but we want teens to know they are worth it and suicide is permanent solution.
The Jacob’s SWAG Foundation was created to raise funds to help provide educational programs in the schools and community youth programs. These programs will SWAG (Support With Awareness & Giving) in the areas of bullying, suicide prevention/awareness, mental health and making good life choices.
Jacob’s SWAG Foundation Inc. was created to be a tax-exempt program with no stock holders and no employees. Instead it is run by volunteers whose lives has been affected by tragedy. The Foundation helps schools and other programs provide education and help to children and families to increase the awareness of suicide by offering financial support for those programs. Although the SWAG Foundation is based out of Monroe, WI, its help is not limited to just Monroe.
Jacob’s SWAG Foundation Inc. is established in memory of our son, brother and friend, Jacob Ellefson. Jacob was a young man who passed away on June 7, 2012, by taking his own life. He was funny, loving and vibrant young man who is truly missed by all who knew him.
