BENEFITING: POSTPARTUM PROGRESS
EVENT DATE: Jun 21, 2014
After my older sister, Katherine Stone, gave birth to her wonderful son, she spiraled down into the darkness of a debilitating mental disorder. She was able to find the light and continued shining her light by founding postpartumprogress.com, an award-winning blog dedicated to helping new moms climb out of their own darkness. Shortly thereafter, she founded Postpartum Progress Inc., a nonprofit focused on supporting pregnant and new moms with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders like postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety, postpartum OCD, postpartum psychosis and pregnancy depression.
I'm writing today to ask you to sponsor me or join my team as I participate in Climb Out of the Darkness, the annual awareness-raising and fundraising event for Postpartum Progress. Help us raise money so that we can continue to raise awareness of how women are devastated by perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, make sure women know what they need to know about PPD, eliminate stigma and support the mamas who need it.
And now to get climbing!
