Celebrating One is a mental health and wellness nonprofit based in Columbus, Ohio. They are dedicated to making sure people know that they are not alone. They promote empathy through human connection and celebration.
Mission: To encourage those who feel alone and need help to keep moving forward to good emotional, mental, and financial health that will enrich their lives giving validation, understanding, hope, love, and joy.
Purpose: To acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of those overcoming life challenges of emotional suffering or poor mental health no matter how small to keep them moving forward through inspiring programs, support groups, advocacy, and service.
What We Love About The Organization: Celebrating One first caught my attention when I learned about their Send a Card program. To participate, you go to their website celebratingone.org and choose the option to Send a Card to someone who is going through a difficult time, is struggling with all the challenges of life, or just someone who needs to know they are not alone. You enter their name, mailing address, and a little about what they're going through. That's it. From there the volunteers take over and every two weeks your person will get a beautiful, handwritten note from Celebrating One. There's no cost to send a card, but you can always make a donation if you feel inclined.
The Team: Celebrating One was founded by Jurgita Fumo after going through many struggles herself.
