Evansville, Ind. (WEHT) – Supporters and family gathered today at the Red Bank library location to spread #MASONSMESSAGE.

15-year-old Mason Bogard died last month after his family says he was playing the choking game.

Since his death, his family has started the #MASONSMESSAGE to bring awareness to social media games and the impact they could have on families.

Saturday a benefit was organized to help fund education and future benefits.

The family of Mason wants parents to stay in-tune with their teens.

“This is Pink Zebra and were selling Mason Jar candles to educate people about #MASONSMESSAGE and social media and as a community get the message out there and help spread Mason’s message” says supporter Jennifer Kissel.

 Mason’s organs were donated to five people across the United States.

People could purchase candles from the Pink Zebra in Mason Jars.

If you want to help donate or purchase a candle you can contact Jennifer Kissel or Carrie Wheeler on Facebook or call (812) – 470-0780, the Pink Zebra.
