Hey friends! I'm at it again trying to raise a little bit of money for a cause about which I am passionate.
Since I was unable to participate in the NAMI walk this year, I decided to raise money for NoStigmas during their virtual 5K. I'll be running a 5K on Father's Day Weekend in honor of breaking down the damagining stigmas attached to mental illness and mental health. If this cause resonates with you, please consider a small donation to sponser my run.
Donations will go straight to NoStigmas. Right now, they're working on creating an app that will help them create easy-to-access resources. Read about it below!

NoStigmas is a global mental health network empowering individuals to take positive action through awareness, support and advocacy. We're all about building community support, so what better way than to make a NoStigmas App!
The NoStigmas Here mental health app will be a place for people to connect with mental health information, resources and support. It's a conduit that conveys members along their mental health journey, with a focus on self-care and community.
We're helping people learn how to practice positive mental health for themselves AND those around them. Inspired individuals, inspired community!
This app lives out our mission by creating a peer support system that is founded on the anti-stigmatization of mental health. There are no stigmas here, only support!
We're talking with some of the top app developers in the world! The estimated total cost of this project is $10,000 and we can't do it without your help. Here's a breakdown of how project development will loook:
