Seven Charles Thomas Bridges was a loving charismatic 10 year old boy.  He was his mothers child. His mother is Tami Charles aka The Dudley Lady aka The City's Auntie.  On Saturday January 19th, 2019, 10 year old Seven took his life as a result of school house bullying. His hanging body was discovered by his mother.

For the past 5-6 months, Tami has been in constant dialog with his school Kerrick Elementary as well as The Jefferson County School Board about issues surrounding her son being bullied.

His death is an example of what can happen when we choose not to take the issue of Bullying seriously.

Tami who is an Entrepreneur, Comedian and Military Veteran will be out of work for some time to properly address this tragic incident. This campaign is to assist Seven family with funeral and memorial expenses, lost wages, and to support Tami in finding justice and resolve for the death of her only child.

These are the initial videos documenting her complaint to Kerrick Elementary and with the JCPS School Board.

Here is Tami's News Interview on January 21, 2019

The Charles and Bridges Family would like to extend a deep and heartfelt thank you for your prayers, sympathy, loving gestures, and monetary seeds of compassion.

Because of you, we will lay our beloved, Seven, to rest without the additional stress of having to figure out how to afford to bury our beautiful ten-year-old son. (Suicide makes insurance policies null and void.)

Because of you, our son has new life. SevenSTRONG is evolving into a catalyst for change - a harbinger of implementation and assurance of clear protective measures for all children that have been victimized in all schools around the country.

The fight is long from over. Our goal is to see that everyone that ignored our plea is brought to justice and we will because of ALL OF YOU! We Salute YOU!

This is for your child. This is for our child. THIS IS FOR SEVEN. #SevenSTRONG
