Live Through This x Hope & Grace Fund

by | 05/01/2017 | 0 comments


Live Through This was chosen as a grant recipient from the hope & grace fund, a project of New Venture Fund, in partnership with the global women’s skincare brand, philosophy, inc.

The hope & grace fund is built from 1% of revenue of philosophy products, and issues grants to organizations and initiatives of all sizes that are making a real impact in the world of mental health.

This grant will allow me to redesign the Live Through This website with added search/categorization functionality; increase my team size by one extra human to expedite publication of 52 stories (that’s one a week (!) —anyone who’s been intimately involved in the project knows I move slowly because I primarily work alone and I’m a perfectionist); and create four brand new multimedia stories of women in underrepresented communities.

I am so, so, so excited that the hope & grace fund recognizes the value of Live Through This, and I can’t wait to get to work. Happy Mental Health Month!

Live Through This is a labor of love requiring a lot of time and care. I do most of the work myself, but do have a small team of volunteers taking care of tasks I simply don’t have the expertise to handle on my own. I am currently in need of long-term transcriptionists and a dependable social media assistant. As I have no budget, these positions are unpaid. If you are interested, please contact me.
