請華人同胞轉發 幫助這位王同學及他不幸的家庭(圖)

今天一位加州華人朋友發來求援,請大家關注并給予幫助。

求援事宜如下:

麥克斯?王(Dabney,2019)于2019年9月20日自殺,距離他22歲生日33天。他三個月前才從加州理工學院畢業。在他的家庭中,只有他的母親詹妮弗·徐(Jennifer Xu)他的外祖父母威廉·徐(William Xu)幸存下來,因為他的弟弟今年早些時候自殺了。

我是他最好的朋友。我知道麥克斯是個關心別人的人。當別人受傷時,他會在那里傾聽。當我想聯系某人時,他就在我身邊。他從不拒絕那些需要幫助或建議的人。他也很少對任何人說壞話,總是擁抱新來的人。但當他最需要幫助的時候,我沒能報答他。這就是為什么詹妮弗和我想通過減少精神疾病的恥辱和支持那些因自殺而失去親人的人來進一步繼承他的遺產。

我們計劃用三種不同的方式來支出收益。首先,我們將把這筆錢用于支付喪葬和火葬費用。由于我們的救世主路德教會的慷慨,這不會過分。我們還計劃幫助詹妮弗支付生活費,因為她從得克薩斯州搬到洛杉磯地區定居。最后,我們將把大部分收入捐給專門從事心理健康和外展活動的慈善機構。詹妮弗還計劃成立自己的組織,以減少年輕人尋求專業精神幫助的恥辱。我正在與加州理工學院學生事務部的許多人聯系,我們正計劃設法改善加州理工學院的支持網絡,以增加獲得資源的機會,打破污名,并降低將來發生此類悲劇的風險。

如果你不能為這項事業捐款,你也可以在其他方面提供幫助。你可以看看你有段時間沒聯系過的朋友,看看他們怎么樣。你可以讓你的朋友去看心理醫生,如果他們猶豫不決的話,你也可以提出去。如果你感到悲傷、不適或沮喪,你也可以聯系你的朋友和家人,然后真誠地討論你的感受。最后,你可以做一個好的傾聽者和一個有同情心的人。這是麥克斯想要的。

謝謝您,

(英文)Max Wang (Dabney, 2019), took his own life on September 20, 2019. He was 22 years and 33 days old. He had graduated from the California Institute of Technology only 3 months ago. In his family, he is survived by only his mother, Jennifer Xu, and his maternal grandparents, as his brother had taken his own life earlier this year.

I was his best friend. I know that Max was a caring soul who was always there for others. When others were hurting, he would be there to listen. When I wanted to reach out to someone, he was right by my side. He never turned down those who wanted help or advice. He also rarely had a bad word to say about anyone and always embraced newcomers. But when he needed help the most, I failed to return the favor. This is why Jennifer and I want to further his legacy by reducing the stigma of mental illness and supporting those who have lost their loved ones due to suicide.

We are planning on spending the proceeds in 3 different ways. Firstly, we will spend the money to help cover funeral and cremation costs. Due to the generosity of Our Savior Lutheran Church, this will not be excessive. We are also planning to help Jennifer cover living expenses as she settles in the LA area after moving from Texas. Lastly, we will be donating the bulk of the proceeds to charities that specialize in mental health and outreach programs. Jennifer is also planning to start her own organization to reduce the stigma of seeking professional mental help in young adults. I am in contact with many people at Caltech Student Affairs, and we are planning on figuring out ways to improve the Caltech support network to increase access to resources, break down stigma, and lower the risk that such a tragedy will occur in the future.

If you cannot contribute money to this cause, you can help in other ways as well. You can check on friends who you haven’t heard from in a while, just to see how they are doing. You can refer your friends to a therapist, and offer to go as well if they are hesitant. You can also reach out to your friends and family if you are feeling sad, unwell, or depressed, then honestly discuss your feelings. Finally, you can help just by being a good listener and a compassionate being. It’s what Max would have wanted.

Thank you,

Hello everyone,

Thank you very much to all who have donated! I was completely blown away that we even reached our goal, let alone in the first few hours that we posted! We are so proud of the Caltech community!

In the coming days, we will be highlighting what charities we are planning on supporting and how we are spending the money.

Again, thank you for your support, both for Jennifer, and towards your own communities.

Best regards,
William and Jennifer(王同學基金會設立者)
