On June 27th, 2014 my best friend and first love Hawa died by suicide. Hawa was a smart, caring, funny, and altruistic person. From the day we met each other we were glued to each other. My sister described her as my earth angel; those words were and are still correct. Her energy and love is still present in my life today. Hawa transitioned from being my earth angel to my guardian angel.
When I heard the news that Hawa completed suicide I knew instantly that I would do everything I could to bring awareness to mental health and suicide prevention. Hawa was someone who would give anything she had to anyone who was in need.
In honor of her life and legacy I founded Heart 2 Give, a 501(c) 3 Non-profit organization. Heart 2 Give provides assistance to those in need through partnerships and contributions from individuals and businesses. This assistance is not limited to food, clothes and gifts. If funding is available, we also provide funds for fun or relaxing experiences for youth and adults. More importantly the message of hope and emotional support for those in need! Help us give hope by giving what you can! Thank you!
Heart 2 Give was founded by Brandarius Johnson, a Las Vegas native with a humble desire to give and inspire. Through personal challenges he faced, he realized that everyone has their own challenges and that through authentic sharing and connecting healing can begin. This inspired him to use his story to give hope and be a testament to others, that it’s possible to overcome any obstacles that may arise.
Our mission is to show love, encourage growth, and give back.
