IKKIR Foundation is dedicated to the memory of Rikki’ L. Smith and serves to raise awareness and prevention of Teen Suicide.  Often we find our young people facing heavy burdens such as bullying, harassment and violence.  IKKIR hopes to reach those in most need of help through avenues of education, resources, and mentoring.  IKKIR hopes to bring dignity and honor to teens who have lost their life much too soon.  IKKIR is a non-profit organization that utilizes donation to establish scholarship for at risk teens and promote its mission in raising awareness about teen suicide.   If you would like to have your loved one memorialized on the IKKIR virtual memorial or would like to donate (time is just as valuable as money) for the cause contact the IKKIR Founder:
