Isaac

Shining a light where it's needed most

A STORY OF HEARTBREAK AND HOPE

In the United States, suicide is the SECOND leading cause of death for ages 10-35.* At MOD, this was made personal by the story of a boy, Isaac, and his relationship with a very special MOD Squad in Naperville, Illinois. This relationship was the inspiration for a pizza and a partnership we used to make a powerful impact.

THE LETTER THAT COMPELLED US TO ACT

MOD Co-founder Ally Svenson introduces the story of the Pedley family in a letter written by Isaac’s mother.
