The family of Avicii have started a mental health charity foundation in tribute to the memory of the late DJ.
His family now plan to keep his memory alive through the charitable work of The Tim Bergling Foundation, which will “initially focus on supporting people and organisations working in the field of mental illness and suicide prevention.” The charity also plans to be prominent in the areas of climate change activism, development assistance, nature conservation and endangered species.
“Tim wanted to make a difference,” a statement from the late DJ’s family about the new foundation concludes. “Starting a foundation in his name is our way to honour his memory and continue to act in his spirit.”
Avicii was remembered at a memorial service in his native Stockholm back in November, with hundreds of fans attending the service to pay their respects.
