The Lindsey O’Brien Kesling (LOK) Wishing Tree Foundation was started in 2011 to LIVE LOVE through Carbon Monoxide Education and Unleashing the Artistic Dreams of Youth.
In November 2010, Lindsey O’Brien Kesling “got her wings” at the young age of 22. Her tragic death resulted from exposure to unsafe levels of carbon monoxide in the Arizona apartment where she lived. It is a sad fact that approximately 500 preventable deaths occur annually due to missing or improperly installed carbon monoxide detection equipment; an additional 28,000+ hospitalizations occur each year.
Lindsey's family and friends transformed their grief into something new and beautiful: The Lindsey O’Brien Kesling (LOK) Wishing Tree Foundation. The LOK Foundation is dedicated to honoring the fullness of Lindsey’s short life by supporting her passions: helping children achieve their dreams, mentoring those less privileged, supporting their potential in the performing arts and by being a friend.
