~~MACY'S 17TH BIRTHDAY CAMPAIGN~~
My name is Macy and I decided to give up my 17th birthday. So instead of buying me gifts, use the money you would have used and donate it to my charity. I realize that I have a lot and I am very fortunate and want to give back.
The charity I choose is National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). All of the money you donate will go directly to them. Most of their money is used to provide support, education and resources that help improve the lives of individuals and families living with mental illness. Want to know more? Check out their website at nami.org
I have chosen this charity because a lot of people are unaware of mental illnesses and how serious they can be. I want to help bring awareness and educate people who don't know or don't quite understand. I also want to help individuals and families who don't have the knowledge or resources to get the help they need.
So please donate and together we can bring awareness and help those suffering with mental illnesses.
