Their Mission is to support and inspire actions to end bullying, cyberbullying, and suicide. They believe that through empowering our society to celebrate individuality and the acceptance of others, that we can work together to make a difference and create a safer and kinder world.
The Megan Meier Foundation was founded by Tina Meier in 2007 after her 13-year-old daughter, Megan, tragically took her own life following an online hoax perpetrated by an adult neighbor posing as a fictitious boy on MySpace.
Each year, 13 million children like Megan are affected by bullying-related issues and the suicide rate of youth aged 10-24 has increased by 56% in the past ten years.
The Megan Meier Foundation is committed to preventing these tragedies and provides vital programs that support struggling youth including educational presentations, community resources, and free counseling services that have served over half a million people to date.
