Sarah is also the founder of Angel Watching Over Me. She started this foundation in order to help fund other non profits and unite all people who have lost an “Angel”. AWOM, an acronym for Angel Watching Over Me, derived from a social media trend #AngelWatchingOverMe where other victims began telling their stories about their “angels”. So this foundation is for them, to raise awareness and support the victims and families left behind by a loving friend, family, or any other important person in their life. Not only for those who have lost someone, but AWOM also helps other organizations and foundations and serves as their “Angel” by donating and volunteering.
On June 5, 2016, Angels Watching Over Me is running for a cause.
