Keith Milano Fundraiser-larger banner

*The Keith Milano Fundraiser is very near and dear to our hearts as this is Denise’s brother who suffered from mental illness.  Please read below for more information and to see the authors who are participating this year.  A percentage of proceeds from the sales  from May 1st – May 31st of these books will be donated to the Keith Milano Fund.  Thank you to everyone for your support!*

The Keith Milano Memorial Fund was established to help raise awareness about the devastating and deadly disease that is mental illness. Keith’s spirit and laughter is kept alive through our efforts to increase awareness about mental illness and to raise money for education and imperative research. Keith often struggled with society’s perception of mental illness.  Our hope is that by having the strength to say that Keith was “Bipolar” we can strip away the stigma and help others to be more open about their disease.

The Keith Milano Memorial Fund benefits the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).

AFSP is the only national not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research and education, and to reaching out to people with mood disorders and those affected by suicide.

AFSP is a fully accredited 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization incorporated in the state of Delaware with primary offices in New York City. Federal tax ID # is 13-3393329. AFSP’s Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) number is 10545. All donations to AFSP are tax deductible.

    Is there a way to make a direct donation to the foundation? (I think I own most these books already but am double checking :)). This is a cause near and dear to my heart as my son struggled for two agonizing years before hitting rock bottom and pulling himself out of it. I’d love to help.

  8. May
