Five on Friday

Apr 18, 2014
Enjoy this week's contribution to Five on Friday and Friday Favorites! Happy Weekend!

//1// I am hosting a swap that benefits mental health awareness. Here are the facts:

  • May has been observed as National Mental Health Awareness Month since 1949.
  • Mental health issues affect as many as one in four Americans.
  • More people die from suicide in the United States than from traffic accidents or homicides.
  • We lose 25 soldiers to suicide for every solider lost in combat.
  • Because of the stigma associated with mental illness, many people are too ashamed or embarrassed to seek the help they need for themselves or their loved ones. 

Support Mental Health Awareness Month by joining the Go Green Swap and plastering social media! Sign up to swap green accessories and wear them proudly throughout the month of May.







  • Sign ups are open until Wednesday, April 23.
  • Leave a comment on this past with your name, e-mail address, and blog address (if you have one) or e-mail your information to BloggerAsh703@gmail.com to sign up.
  • Swap partners will be assigned on Thursday, April 23. You will be notified who your partner is through e-mail. Contact your partner by the end of the day on Friday, April 24.
  • Shop for your partner. Spend $10-$15 on a GREEN COLORED accessory or accesosries for your partner. Think jewelry, socks, scarves, etc.
  • Mail your package by Saturday, May 3. This gives you an entire week to shop!
  • Come back here to link up and show off your goods on Friday, May 9.
  • Spread the word now! Invite friends and other bloggers to join the swap. Get on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. to promote mental health awareness! #mentalhealthawareness, #gogreenswap, #nomorestigma #mentalhealthmonth
