It has been quite a while since I have posted new content for Angsty Nerd. The reason why is because I have been quite busy with new plans for the site! Angsty Nerd will be my number one priority this year and I will be looking for new and exciting ways to get this out to the masses. The goal of this website is to help young adults in Nerd Culture who may struggle with a Mental Illness such as Anxiety and Depression.
In order to be proactive and lend a helping hand, I will be partnering with my Podcast, No Ordinary Nerd to launch a fundraising campaign for Bring Change 2 Mind. This chairty is founded by Glenn Close and her family in order to help destroy the stigma around Mental Illness. You can read more about their mission statement on their website here.
It has always been a dream of mine to raise money for Mental Illness awareness and donate it to a really great cause. I hope I can count on you guys to help me achieve this goal and hopefully get one step closer to ending the stigma.
In other news, Angsty Nerd will be going full steam ahead in the coming months with new content and even contests to win crazy amazing nerdy stuff! (Make sure you are following Angsty Nerd on Twitter and Tumblr for updates and a chance to win.) But I don’t want Angsty Nerd to just be about me. I want to hear from you guys! I will be showcasing stories and other points of view of Mental Illness on the site. I want to hear from you!
WE WANT YOU!
