“So that everyone has the best chance to come home”
Blue Forever, Inc. works to increase the awareness for Police Officers Safety, and to raise funds for purchasing lifesaving Belt Trauma Kits (BTK*) for law enforcement officers throughout the United States.
My name is Kellie Abbott, and I graduated from Haughton High School in 2013. I am currently a sophomore at Mississippi State University. I designed and sell a signature Blue Forever T-shirt, have local fundraising events, partner with other police supporters, and with the money I raise I donate Belt Trauma Kits. I’m now working to raise awareness of my personal goal for every officer in the state of Louisiana and nationwide to be issued a Belt Trauma Kit, which contains QuikClot Combat Gauze. These kits help to promote law enforcement safety and will prevent officer traumatic bleeding deaths, like Shreveport Police Sergeant Tim Prunty’s in October 2010. After the death of my friend, Sergeant Prunty, I felt it was important to make an impact on law enforcement safety. Through a news article, I learned about QuikClot hemostatic gauze and how it helps slow down traumatic bleeding until an individual can receive medical treatment. Immediately, I realized QuikClot gauze could have helped to save Sergeant Prunty’s life that night. Having the knowledge of a tool that could help to save a life and address a critical need in law enforcement safety compelled me to continue with my fundraiser to make a difference. So far I have raised almost $40,000 and donated 401 QuikClot Belt Trauma Kits to 14 different police agencies in Louisiana & New Jersey. In October of 2013, Blue Forever became incorporated and has filed with the IRS to become a non-profit 501c3 organization. I would like to thank everyone who purchased t-shirts or donated to my cause. For more information on how to order a shirt you can visit my store on this web site: and follow us on Twitter @blueforever__
