Craft show, other events help families impacted by suicide

A Central Illinois woman who lost her husband to suicide is now helping others who have experienced similar situations.

Micke Craft lost her husband 9 years ago and since then has started Angels Among Us Events, to gift families affected by suicide with toiletries and other bare necessities.

Sunday was her second annual Beat the Winter Blues Craft Show, an event that helps fund her mission. This was just one of the 22 events she has planned this year.

The organization also adopts families for Christmas to let them know they are not alone like she was not when she was in their situation.

“At that time I had nothing and so many people came out and helped me and I’ve never forgotten that. I’m at a point now in my life that I can return the favor,” she said.

Craft accepts physical and monetary donations. If you would like to donate contact her via the Angels Among Us Events Facebook page: www.facebook.com/oneangelatatime/
