Drake has a collective of over 3 million active followers on all social media platforms. His team has decided to use his platform to help bring awareness to mental health.
For every shirt purchased, a portion of the proceeds goes to support a mental health organization.
Why am I doing this?
1. I want to help as many people as I can. These types of illnesses aren’t visible and many of us have them but not one person around use might know. This clothing line is to help the people who aren’t able to talk about it, or aren't yet willing to seek help on their own.
2. I don’t understand mental illnesses as much as I would like to, and I want to learn more and help as I learn. I understand that I have a large platform to help spread awareness and also give back. While in that process I will be learning and trying to grow as an individual. I can spread what I learn to everyone else. I know many people with mental illnesses, and while I don’t always understand and I don’t always know how to help, this clothing will give me the opportunity to say “ hey I see you and I hear your pain I’m always here for you”.
