Home / Our Story

 

Hello!  Thank you so much for visiting LinkSupport.org. Please be sure to read our Mission and Process to find out more about The Link Foundation.  I created The Link Foundation to honor my parents.  I lost my Mother to cancer in 2003, and my Father in 2011, which led me to create “The Links”: a recycled bicycle chain link turned into a constant reminder of hope and love. Each Link is cleaned, painted, and put on a ball chain.  Unfortunately ,we all suffer illness, sadness, loss, grief. That’s just how life goes.  Our goal is to bring awareness and hope to those suffering, and to remind each other that we are all connected, like balls on a chain.  My mother had breast cancer so I started with “The Pink Link.”

 

 

 

Now, we have close to twenty different charities who have linked up.  The Plan for the future of The Link Foundation is to continue to support other charities, fundraise, and raise awareness for those causes we support through our links.  You will notice we have expanded to some great causes and plan to keep going. We are a 100% NON-PROFIT COMPANY!!!  We are mainly a family run charity with a LOT of donated time on the part of my brother, his family, and myself.  We want nothing more than to assure you our efforts are all genuine and volunteer. If you have any questions or concerns about anything to do with The Link Foundation Inc., please be sure to contact us and we will do our best to answer whatever questions you have.

  • ….sometimes you just need a little help from your friends, and other times you make new friends during a very difficult time.  This is what happened to our family when our son, Brett Banasiewicz, suffered a traumatic brain injury on his BMX bike on August 23, 2011.  Dustin Grice is one of Brett’s BMX buddies that reached out to us about the Link Foundation.  Jeff Troldahl, founder of the Link Foundation, and Dustin Grice designed a “Maddog” bracelet with Brett’s signature colors pink and green.  The Link Foundation sold many bracelets via the internet and also allowed us to sell the bracelets at Brett’s BMX Skate Park.  The proceeds went to Brett’s mounting medical bills.  Brett was able to obtain the best care in the United States that also included hyperbarics.  Brett had to relocate to Texas because the state of Indiana is not licensed to administer hyperbarics  for TBI’s..
