Donations are to establish and fuel a charity for offering financial alleviation to young adults recovering from severe mental illness.

Millions of young adults in the United States suffer greatly from periods of extreme symptom severity- financially, socially, and in their employment or education. The goal is to establish a charity meant to help young adults of America stabilize and become socially adapted after severe periods of loss due to manic depression, bipolar disorder, and anxiety disorders. As those symptoms that might often show dramatic improvement are worsened incrementally by the heavy financial stress caused by the initial episodes, those that would otherwise have the potential to permanently improve were they not impacted so heavily by these symptoms often never fully recover due to increased financial challenges. The purpose of beginning this charity is to avoid the need for complete emergency care (welfare assistance, disability checks, and homeless shelters). We hope to provide a more immediate care to recover young adults from severe episodes of mental illness, we attempt to avoid discriminating need beyond the episode of illness, as pure, altruistic, complete care at the very beginning of severe symptoms can prevent a life of pain, debt and social inequality, by filling the hole before it becomes an inescapable chasm. Let's try and prevent anybody's life from completely falling apart.
