Welcome the 4th Annual Mental Health Awareness Month Book Fundraiser benefiting the Keith Milano Memorial Fund.
During the month of May, over 25 authors have agreed to donate a portion of May sales to the fund and over 40 authors have donated items to an online auction also benefiting the fund!
There are number of ways you can help raise money and awareness for mental health:
The Keith Milano Memorial Fund was established to help raise awareness about the devastating and deadly disease that is mental illness. Keith’s spirit and laughter is kept alive through our efforts to increase awareness about mental illness and to raise money for education and imperative research. Keith often struggled with society’s perception of mental illness. Our hope is that by having the strength to say that Keith was “Bipolar” we can strip away the stigma and help others to be more open about their disease.
If you want to know more about Keith or why Denise does what she does, here is short video/interview that speaks to that! https://vimeo.com/
Be on the lookout as she will also be posting her #ShareYourWhy this month.
