Hi , My name is Karriemah ( Carry - Ma ),Johnson . I am 22 years old with an infant son. I am in school to be a Veterinary Assistant.
I'm starting this page and fundraiser because I've witnessed a lot of people in college and a lot of women postpartum (myself included) suffer from depression and postpartum depression , and sexual assault victim. I want to do something to help , so my goal is to start a Company called maKIT better where we make boxes/"kits" of "feel good" stuff i.e candy ,books ,encouraging letters or poems etc. All things that could possibly make someone's day and put a smile on their face. I'd like to have people buy a box for a friend and every box that is purchased , I'll send one to someone suffering from a mental illness or a victim of sexual assault.
Depression sucks , it's a mental illness that is swept under the rug and they're told to just "cheer up" and "get over it" . I just want to make people feel better , especially if they are living alone. I don't know who wouldn't smile if a person they love or any random caring person sent them a care package with their favorite things in it just to see them smile.
I want people to be able to contact me for their family member or friend/significant other who is going through some things mentally , even if it has to do with school; or if it is postpartum. Even if they're just having a crappy week.
I'm not saying that this is the cure for depression or any mental illness , but If you could make someone smile ; wouldn't you? If you could change someone's thoughts even just for a moment and make that dark cloud go away for a day , you would. I would do anything to prevent anyone from self-harm or taking their life.

The only thing is I need donations to start off . Being a student and a mom is a job in itself and I don' have much to start me off. If I have the support from people all over , maybe I'll get what I need to start this organization that'll help all kinds of people.
