Buy Cards, Support Those Affected by Mental Illness

Just like last year, Maybe a Cupcake Cards is pleased to announce that 100% of proceeds from all cards purchased between now and June 4 will be donated to NAMI Washington!

National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. It's a great organization and the annual NAMI Walk is their only fundraiser. Mental health awareness is something I am very passionate about and this is my fourth year participating in the NAMI Walk. When I'm not crafting or baking, I work as a social worker in an emergency department, and I work every day with people either experiencing a mental health crises or helping their family members through it. I've seen how many people are affected by mental illness, so I know how important it is to fight the stigma of seeking help and increasing education around mental illness.

All of the money from each card purchased will go straight to my fundraising for the 2016 NAMI Walk Washington. That means each $3 card is like a $3 donation to a great cause. The more cards you buy, the more you help!
