$500 for the Holidays for Supporting Veterans with Mental Illness
Win $500 just in time for holiday shopping by donating at least $5 between December 15-21, 2015 to Blanket of Freedom's fundraising campaign to support veterans with mental illness.
Blanket of Freedom's mission is to provide a cultural alternative to traditional treatment methodologies through the use of Expressive Art/Drama Therapeutic Interventions for combat veterans. Within a supportive and safe environment, veterans will be able to safely explore their feelings and emotions surrounded by others who have shared experiences. Blanket of Freedom (BOF) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that is dedicated to providing services to combat veterans struggling with mental illness by providing an Expressive/Drama Therapeutic Intervention program which provides an alternative to traditional treatment programs. This approach can provide the context for participants to tell their stories, set goals and solve problems, express feelings, or achieve catharsis. Through drama, the depth and breadth of inner experience can be actively explored and interpersonal relationship skills can be enhanced. Participants can expand their repertoire of dramatic roles to find that their own life roles have been strengthened. Your donation will help these brave warriors get the help they need with a stigma reducing program that allows them the opportunity to explore therapeutic options not previously available through any other traditional program.
