Each year Milwaukee Fashion Week partners with a local nonprofit organization, as one of several ways to be an active part of the community, and have raised over $12,000! Some of our previous charities include Pathfinders, Girl Power Model Mania, and Make-A-Wish Wisconsin! This year, we have chosen to do something different, and support an organization that seeks to better the lives of those affected by depression by increasing public awareness of the disease and its devastating effects, eliminating the stigma associated with it, supporting suicide prevention programs and promoting improved access to quality mental health resources within communities:
The Charles E. Kubly Foundation.
Donations will support efforts to:
- Raise Depression Awareness
- Reduce Suicide
- Provide Depression Education
- Reduce Stigma
- Help Individuals Find Resources
For immediate risk of harm and/or emergencies always CALL 911.
