I am excited to bring two of my most heartfelt experiences together – a favorite television role and my work at Bring Change 2 Mind. I spent 5 years playing the role of Patty Hewes on Damages. She was a brilliant, complex and driven woman and I loved every minute with her. Her wardrobe, masterfully assembled by Damages Costumer Frank Flemming, was very much a part of her character. The 5th and final season of Damages is being released to DVD this week by Sony Home Entertainment. Sony has generously included our first PSA on every DVD produced! In conjunction with the DVD release, we’ve decided that Patty Hewes’ amazing wardrobe should benefit an important cause – to end the stigma and discrimination of mental illness. We’re holding an exciting charitable auction on eBay with all proceeds to benefit Bring Change 2 Mind. The auction starts today and will remain open for the next nine days. Final bids will be placed on July 19th. Visit eBay and bid on some of the 380 pieces from Patty’s wardrobe. Be sure to tell your friends too! There are beautiful suits, bags, shoes, and signed DVD’s. The auction is now open and will be live for the next nine days. Visit bringchangedamagesauction.com to buy a piece or two from Patty’s lawyer chic wardrobe and help us end stigma. Thank you for being a part of this amazing BC2M community. We’re changing minds and changing lives every day.
Ms Close & Bringchange2mind.org,
I just viewed your TV spot and was quite impressed and gratified to see its focus on overcoming the stigma of male mental illness. This led me to your website.
Ms. Close, we at Counseling on Demand have been following your mission to bring the importance of addressing mental illness for some time now. Thank you and congratulations. Please keep up the good work. I am sorry that we are not able to contribute at present since we are an online startup ourselves; however, we join you in your mission to bring relief to sufferers as well as education to the public regarding mental illness.
