I’m so very excited to be writing this post, because #Fearless’s Mental Health Awareness Month Fundraiser was a huge success. For those who did not know, from May 1 to May 31, #Fearless ran two fundraisers: one being a t-shirt sale, and the other being a local baking fundraiser. These two together made up a huge effort to raise as much money as possible for The Trevor Project, and organization that helps with crisis intervention and suicide prevention in LGBTQ+ teens.
In total, we raised $445 for The Trevor Project, which doubled the amount of money that was made last year ($220). Not only was I completely floored at how well this did, it just proves that this world isn’t as bad as it sometimes seems. It’s my hope that next year, no matter what the vessel of fundraising is, that we can hit $500 for another great organization!
I love to raise awareness and funds for organizations whenever I can. If I could, I’d donate almost all my money to charity, but I just don’t have that ability. This world is in need of love and kindness, so please make sure, even if you can’t donate to help an organization directly, you can help by spreading positivity, love and empathy to all who walk this earth.
Did you order a shirt, mug, hoodie, sticker or something from our bake sale? If you did, send the picture to firstname.lastname@example.org! We would love to see you showing off your pride for this wonderful cause.
If you would like to email #Fearless, you can send any questions, concerns, comments or suggestions to email@example.com. We do our best to respond within 48 hours, but if for some reason we cannot get back to you in that time frame, we promise we will always respond as soon as possible.

Lastly, we run an Emetophobia Support Group on Facebook. Emetophobia is the intense and irrational fear of throwing up, and it is one struggle we are passionately engaged in. It is a closed, by request only group to help facilitate sharing and support by all members. It is also private, meaning that the posts you and others make will not show up publicly in your newsfeed.
