I wanted to share a very cool, supportive charity that I am honored to be volunteer for, I have recently picked up as a writer for “Letters Against Depression”
Letters against Depression has one simple, but robust mission: To help lift up those who suffer from Depression and other Mental illness. The person who needs to be lifted up by one of LAD’s writers can simply submit their story about their battle with depression or other mental illness (i.e. Bipolar, PTSD, Anxiety, Anorexia, Addiction, etc..)
Then, we as letter writers will go through the stories and claim a recipient, we will write a letter to help lift that person up and spread light on their situation within a week of claiming the recipient! (Recipients location stays private, letters from writers are mailed to the charity for that specific person and they then forward them.)
I am very excited, as a person who has battled with depression since I was 12 years old and was diagnosed with PTSD, I am happy that I can help use what I do to brighten someone’s day who is experiencing depression or another illness.
If you have time to write a letter, please contact Rob through Letters Against Depression
If you feel like you could use a letter, PLEASE submit your story to lettersagainst.org!
