Crafting for the cause

Supporting: Therapy Fund for Black Women and Girls for The Loveland Foundation Inc.


As someone who’s dealt with mental health issues for years, drawing / coloring / crafting has always helped settle my mind. But…. therapy and access to care have done WAY more. Black women have done so much to educate and organize everyone else for years, and they deserve some GD peace of mind!!! Donate to the Loveland Foundation through this fundraiser, and I will send you the craft of your choice. I can also do copies of these, or custom commissions if you'd like!

Thank you so much for your interest in supporting the Loveland Foundation Therapy Fund. Whether you have already donated or you are just learning about the project, we are grateful to have you on board.

 With therapy sessions in the U.S. typically costing anywhere from $60 - $250-- even with insurance, the prevalent and ingrained stigma surrounding mental health in many communities, and the fact that the vast majority of therapists in this country are white, it is often difficult for Black women and girls to access therapy when they need it. We wanted to change that. 

In our pilot program, we raised over $250,000 with the support of our generous community and provided financial assistance to hundreds of Black women and girls to go to therapy. We did this through collaborative partnerships with  Therapy for Black Girls, Open Path Collective, National Queer and Trans Therapists of Color Network, and Talkspace, networks and service providers that are all committed to making therapy more affordable and accessible. 

No matter how much you are able to give, we are excited to work together with our community again to bring therapy support directly to Black women and girls who need it. Please donate now to tangibly tell these women and girls, “We see you, we hear you, and we are invested in your healing.”Generations will benefit from their healing.
