Salon holds fundraiser in memory of Monroe teenPosted: Updated:
The My Salon salon held a fundraiser Saturday, offering discounted prices for beauty services, with all proceeds going toward the "Kindness Above Malice" foundation, started in memory of 14-year-old Kameron Jacobsen.
Kameron took his own life in January, a death his family says was caused after he was bullied both in school and online. The fundraiser was organized by Karen Lomeli, a friend of Kameron's mother.
"These kids can attack each other so bad that I just wanted to do what I could to help spread the word and stop it," said Lomeli.
The KAM foundation is dedicated to developing programs to build self-esteem, and awarding scholarships to students who have demonstrated a commitment to anti-bullying awareness.
