The world was moved last week when chef and author Anthony Bourdain passed away from suicide. Bourdain changed hearts and minds around the world, and held up the best of local cultures wherever he traveled. He encouraged curiosity, taking risks, and living life with an open mind.

After his passing, many of his books -- including his groundbreaking "Kitchen Confidential" -- have climbed up the bestseller charts. "Kitchen Confidential" is now among the highest selling books in the country.

Anthony Bourdain's tragic passing has elevated a national conversation around suicide and suicide prevention. That's why this petition hopes to convince Amazon, the largest bookseller in the world, to take some of the proceeds they're making off of selling Anthony Bourdain books, and make a donation to suicide prevention. Will you join and support?

Across the United States, chefs and businesses touched by Bourdain have started to donate part of their proceeds to suicide prevention. Restaurants in New York and California have pledged to donate a share of their June proceeds -- some of which could be tens of thousands of dollars -- to national suicide prevention efforts. Wouldn't it be great if Amazon were able to do the same thing?

Thank you, Anthony Bourdain, for teaching us so much about the world and for leaving behind an incredible legacy of adventure, connection, and caring for one another no matter where we live in this world. Let's all pledge to do all we can to live with the same intention as Anthony.

If you or a loved one is also in need of a conversation, or are struggling with depression or any kind of issue, please reach out to the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255 for help.
