MAY CAUSE - Mental Health
For the month of May we have released a LIMITED EDITION SCARS Tee. We will be donating $5.00 of every sale of these shirts to the Jed Foundation (JED) at the end of the month.
JED is a nonprofit that exists to protect emotional health and prevent suicide for our nation’s teens and young adults. They partner with high schools and colleges to strengthen their mental health, substance abuse and suicide prevention programs and systems.
In 1998, the founders of the JED lost their youngest son Jed to suicide. Since then, they have worked to understand this unendurable tragedy. Although suicide was and continues to be a leading cause of death among young adults, schools had no uniform model for preventing suicide on campus. Communities struggled to overcome the shame and secrecy that prevented honest discussion of mental health. Campus prevention programs were limited in scope and priority. In 2000, they founded JED to surmount these hurdles and launch a blueprint for prevention. Today, JED is the nation’s leading organization dedicated to young adult mental health.
As a brand, our mission is to inspire those facing obstacles in their life to persevere, to overcome. We invite you to join us here at Apeman in supporting this month’s cause. You can purchase the SCARS Tee supporting JED below.
