Anyone living with mental illness knows that you are never "cured." Cured isn’t a word that is associated with chronic and lasting diseases. That is what mental illness is, a disease. So why do we, as a society, think and talk about it in hushed and shameful tones?
This is why we donated 15% of sales made on Giving Tuesday (Tuesday, December 3rd) to Bring Change to Mind, a foundation who's mission is to end the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness.
For the entire month of December, we will be donating 100% of all sales of our latest print, Pink Rose, to Bring Change to Mind.
