posted Sep 22, 2015, 11:38 AM by GFADP staff

Please see a list of events below put on by organizers with #kellyonmymind.

We wanted to make sure you saw the video featuring Kelly’s children pleading for their mom’s life. For those of you on social media, please share far and wide.

In addition, please take a moment to read or re-read the New York Times profile on Kelly from earlier this year.

We will continue to keep you posted as we get more information.
