When asked why she wanted to get involved? She said it stems from her love of San Antonio. When she heard roughly 100,000 children in Bexar County struggles with mental illness she knew she wanted to get involved, but when she heard 60% would not get the necessary help they need she knew she had to get involved. She knows when a community comes together there is nothing that can't be helped and what's more important than a healthy future for the children of our area! So she asks not only for your donation but also help to remove the stigma around mental health, so we can all start important conversations that will have long term ripple effects.
