Like you I am getting ready to ring in the new year with family and friends.
For me that means a night with my heroes: my sister Jessie who lives with Bipolar Disorder and my wonderful nephew Calen who lives with Schizoaffective Disorder.
They have become fearless advocates for people living with mental illness, and they remind me daily why our mission to erase the kind of stigma they’ve come face to face with is so important.
That’s why I’m asking you to make a tax-deductible donation to Bring Change 2 Mind before the clock strikes midnight tonight.
Jessie and Calen are not alone. We have learned that there are countless heroes out there working hard to change people’s attitudes about mental illness.
But there are also many who struggle daily to find their voice, to speak freely about their illness and to seek help for it. That’s why we must continue the momentum our organization has gained this year into 2012 and beyond.
We’re all connected, and everyone counts. Working together, I know we can change people’s minds. Support Bring Change 2 Mind in 2012 by making a tax-deductible donation today:
Thank you and happy new year!
Chairman of the Board
