With all the negativity going on right now I’d like to show that there is still love and kindness and positivity in the world. I want to raise awareness for mental health. I struggle with this myself so it’s very important to me. All I’m asking is that you donate just one dollar. $1.
Mental illnesses affect 19% of the adult population, 46% of teenagers and 13% of children each year. People struggling with their mental health may be in your family, live next door, teach your children, work in the next cubicle or sit in the same church pew.
However, only half of those affected receive treatment, often because of the stigma attached to mental health. Untreated, mental illness can contribute to higher medical expenses, poorer performance at school and work, fewer employment opportunities and increased risk of suicide.

If the goal is met, I will donate $500,000 to a local mental health charity or facility in need.
Your donation matters
