We are thrilled to announce that Bring Change 2 Mind (BC2M) is part of the Revlon LOVE IS ON 2016 Million Dollar Challenge this year! This fundraising competition launched by Revlon benefits organizations whose work supports women's health causes. Bring Change 2 Mind works to advance women’s health through connectivity.
BC2M’s online space allows people to engage, learn and share experiences. With 95,000+ Facebook Likes and 1M+ website visits, our analytics show that women account for 81% of Facebook followers and 60-70% of website users. Our newest PSA campaign calls for submission of personal stories. The vast majority of the respondents are female. Our high school program, LETS BC2M (a student-led club initiative) empowers young people to talk about mental health and to influence change. This fall the program will expand to 50 schools in The Bay Area. 90-95% of the participants are young women.
As BC2M continues to raise awareness around mental health topics, eradicate stigma and provide a platform of communication for our community, we offer an important resource for women, and the families they support, to advance conversations and take health actions to encourage mental wellness.
Through this Challenge, Bring Change 2 Mind can compete for cash prize donations – the ultimate prize awarded is One Million Dollars for the organization that raises the most money from September 14 – October 26th. Please join us by making a donation or hosting your own fundraiser. It is easy and convenient and most importantly, all donations support BC2M's work to end the stigma and discrimination around mental illness.
