Tweet Hugh Jackman: Donate To Mental Health Nonprofit
The stars are apparently in very generous moods lately.
On Tuesday, April 14, actor Hugh Jackman “tweeted” that he’d donate $100,000 to the charity of one lucky person’s choice, as long as that person could convince him in 140 characters why he should do so.
The Sierra Club and Ecorazzi, both of which are very green oriented, have picked up on the challenge, but unless I missed an extra tweet, I’m pretty sure “one individual’s favorite nonprofit organization” can include those focused on mental health, yes?
If you’re on Twitter and want to try to help out a mental health nonprofit, here are a few suggestions:
- Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance, “a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization.”
- Mental Health America, “the country’s leading nonprofit dedicated to helping ALL people live mentally healthier lives.”
- National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression, “a nonprofit organization that raises funds for scientific research on the causes, treatments and prevention of mental illnesses.”
- National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare, a “not-for-profit 501(c)(3) association representing 1,300 organizations providing treatment and rehabilitation to help people recover from mental illnesses and addiction disorders.”
And, if you do tweet Jackman (@RealHughJackman), be sure to stop back by here and let me know how it goes!
