"Saving lives is exactly what we plan to do in Chester's memory", Bennington said in a speech introducing her partnership with "Give an Hour" and Change Direction, a nonprofit dedicated to changing the conversation and culture around mental health.

The One More Light Fund is raising funds for a charity project particularly close to Chester's heart, Solar Suitcases, which provides solar generators for remote healthcare facilities that don't have access to regular electricity.
