Giving Opportunity – Climb Out of the Darkness

Hooray for our first community giving opportunity! The first opportunity is the Climb Out of the Darkness Event:

BENEFITING: POSTPARTUM SUPPORT INTERNATIONAL

EVENT: Climb out of the Darkness

EVENT DATE: Jun 24, 2017

THE STORY:

Climb Out of the Darkness® is the world’s largest event raising awareness of maternal mental illnesses like postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety & OCD, postpartum PTSD, postpartum psychosis, bipolar/peripartum onset, and pregnancy depression and anxiety.

Climb Out of the Darkness® is held on or near the longest day of the year annually to help shine the most light on perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. The event features mothers and others across the globe joining together to climb mountains and hike trails to represent their symbolic rise out of the darkness of maternal mental illness and into the light of hope and recovery.

We can’t wait for Climb Out of the Darkness 2017, to be held on June 24th. Mark your calendars! Help us shine the light of hope with our words and our advocacy efforts so that our fellow mothers will receive better information and better treatment, and their new families will get off to the healthy and strong start they deserve.

I will definitely be donating funds to this very worthy and personal cause. Any amount helps, and I appreciate your efforts in helping mothers receive the information and treatment they need!
