Give this campaign more potential. Create your own fundraising page to share with your friends and family.

Every year, I use my birthday month to raise funds for great causes ($14k+ since 2012).

This year's fundraiser will benefit Suffering The Silence, an organization led by Allie Cashel and Erica Lupinacci that raises awareness around the experiences of people living with chronic illnesses. I first heard about STS after Allie and Erica were featured in Refinery29 in 2015, and I've been excited to join them on their journey through Diversability, whether it was interviewing them for our blog, working with them on Positive Exposure's pop-up exhibit, or featuring them in our Ask Me Anything event.

Thank you for your support!

Two other updates:

  1. Diversability has partnered with Yamakimoto on these limited edition #NeverthelessShePersisted cards
  2. This month we launched Awesome Foundation Disability, awarding $1000 microgrants to awesome projects.
  3. ONE MORE: If you are in SF on 4/26, we are partnering with STS for Unplugged (tickets are tax deductible)

The Suffering the Silence Community Inc

STS leverages the power of art, media, and storytelling to raise awareness around the life experience of people living with chronic illnesses and invisible disability.

Mission

Suffering the Silence (STS) is a 501(c)3 organization that works to build powerful relationships within that community, and to empower patients, friends, and family members to speak out and share their stories.

Model

Through photography campaigns, storytelling, panel discussions and other events, Suffering the Silence creates opportunities for members of the invisible disability community to connect and break the silence and stigma around their experiences.

Outcome

This act of sharing helps those who are suffering to become self advocates and to find support and understanding. Together, our community also hopes transform the medical and social perception of those living with chronic disease and invisible disability.
