Selena Gomez to raise money for mental health services
It’s great to see so many celebrity endorsements and doing good for others. Selena Gomez has recently launched a new makeup line, Rare beauty, and according to reports will be donating 1% of the proceeds to support mental health. The “Lose You to Love Me” singer intends to raise an ambitious $100 million to bring mental health services to underserved communities over the next 10 years, Fox News reported. “Rare Beauty is focused on helping people feel more connected to one another and less alone in the world. The Rare Impact Fund will make a direct impact on many lives and, ultimately, make a difference in the world. I’m proud of the work we’ve begun to do with our partners to offer these services to anyone who needs support,” Selena Gomez said in a statement about her company. Selena has previously openly talked about mental health struggles in the past, including the pressure she felt on Instagram which resulted in her quitting 'As soon as I became the most followed person on Instagram, I sort of freaked out,' Selena told Vogue at the time. 'It had become so consuming to me. It's what I woke up to and went to sleep to,' she added. 'I was an addict, and it felt like I was seeing things I didn’t want to see, like it was putting things in my head that I didn’t want to care about. I always end up feeling like sh*t when I look at Instagram. Which is why I’m kind of under the radar, ghosting it a bit.' Great to see Selena being so charitable but of course the true giver of charity in this case is the people that are buying the products and it is for a great cause.
