I've been bipolar all my life, I've been through a lot last year because of the sickness. I lost my job, I lost friends and I lost my will to fight. It's definitely not easy having mental illness here in the Philippines. The stigma is there and because I look normal, they reject my PWD ID and accuse me of using it for the privileges.
I am raising money as I am starting a non-profit business, "A Mind Divided - Shop for Mental Wellness". I will be starting with statement shirts and statement bracelets, moving to bigger things when time comes. However, starting a business need support, and I am hoping to get some support for the start-up. Printing T-shirts like the below.
and statement bracelets that you'll wear showing support or showing you need help.
Hoping that the simple gesture of wearing a statement shirt will help people realize that there's a lot of people who needs help mentally and it is nothing to be ashamed of for those who have it.
The business needs help in raising funds for the purchase of shirts, merchandises and the likes.
Thank you so much in advance. The minimal proceeds will be shared to the Children's Joy Foundation, an orphanage in San Fernando, Pampanga, Philippines. We would like to be able to both raise awareness and share the love to those in need.
