What is #MakeYourLight?
The final poem of Ready Aim Fire (Extended) reads:
Perhaps we spent so long in the dark
because we were supposed to learn
how to make our own light.
The #MakeYourLight Project aims to support and empower those living with mental illness. It aims to foster a sense of community, to provide education, and to spread love as we fight to end the stigma surrounding mental illness.
How CAN I GET INVOLVED?
It’s simple! Log into your favorite social media account and tell your followers a little bit about how you make your light. Do you read a book? Do you draw or paint or craft? Do you write? Do you dance? Do you sit on the beach and watch the waves?
Think about the thing that shines a little light on your darkest moments. If you feel comfortable, tell us about it.
Use the hashtag #MakeYourLight and tag @lexivranick (IG/Twitter/FB) to be featured.
