In January 2022, I've started to donate 5% of all sales to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).
I've chosen NAMI because they provide advocacy, education, support and public awareness so that all individuals and families affected by mental illness can build better lives.
I've personally struggled with depression for a good chunk of my life. Despite counseling, medications, coping techniques - sometimes it's just hard to beat such an insidious mental illness. Mental health is such an under-recognized issue, and awareness needs to increase. Providing the advocacy, education, and increasing public awareness will work to reducing the stigma around mental illness. NAMI is committed to those ends.
Thank you for your support of my small business journey, and for helping me give back and make a small difference in the world.
