Today is Giving Tuesday, the global day dedicated to donating to the charities that touch so many lives around the world. We are incredibly humbled and grateful for all the help This is My Brave has received so far and we hope we can count on your donation today.
This is My Brave provides a safe haven of love and support long after the curtain falls on our shows. This holiday season, individuals battling depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and other mental health issues in 6 regions of the country have a caring and understanding community of friends to reach out to. Your donation today will help us expand our vision and reach in the new year.
- In two short years This is My Brave shows have touched tens of thousands of people. Your donation can help us produce 12 NEW shows in cities across the US in 2016.
- 30% of our brave soldiers develop mental health issues within 3 to 4 months of being home. Your donation can help us focus more outreach in the military community, on bases, VFW posts, etc. in 2016.
- 20% of youth ages 13-18 live with a mental health condition. Your donation can help us develop a toolkit and mental health awareness video for school counselors to use in their schools in 2016.
- This is My Brave now reaches 40,000+ people via our website, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms. Your donation can help us get out more information that could be helpful to thousands more in 2016.
We can't do any of this without you. The holidays are the happiest time of the year for most but, while surrounded by laughter and love, there are millions who are quietly suffering with the sadness and shame of mental illness - this season and all the year round. Your donation will give us a shot at reaching tens of thousands of more people fighting this battle next year and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
