Help us stop CO poisoning

The Lindsey O’Brien Kesling (LOK) Wishing Tree Foundation offers education about the dangers of carbon monoxide. Lindsey was just 22 years old when she died from accidental CO poisoning in 2010. We work with firefighters and other partners to host CO awareness events and distribute free and low cost CO alarms -- at least 2 families that we know of credit an alarm they received at one of our events with saving their family's lives.

Besides making alarms available to homeowners who might not otherwise be able to afford one, we are also working with several municipalities in Indiana to help them enact local ordinances because Indiana currently is one of just 4 states that has no requirements for CO alarms in any type of construction. LaPorte, Lindsey's hometown, was the first to take that step earlier in 2017. Since that time, Chesterton has followed suit and several other cities are lining up efforts based on the template we helped create.

@LOKCOAwareness

The LOK Wishing Tree Foundation lives love through carbon monoxide education and unleashing the artistic dreams of youth. We make free and discounted CO alarms to families who might not otherwise be able to afford one. We work with firefighters and other partners to educate the public about the dangers of CO and worked with several municipalities in Indiana to adopt local ordinances requiring CO alarms because Indiana is one of just 4 states that has no laws requiring them. At least two families credit our organization with potentially saving their lives with one of the CO alarms they received at one of our outreach events.
