This is so exciting: Our challenger has just increased our incentive to give to the MindHandHeart Innovation Fund.
The match has grown from $5000 to $6000: now is the time to give.
Join us in the MIT 24-hour Challenge by making a gift to the MindHandHeart Innovation Fund.
The MindHandHeart Initiative has a unique opportunity only available through the MIT 24-hour Challenge:
Your gift on March 14th will be matched by a very generous anonymous donor and be directed to a very specific purpose. Funding will help provide every incoming freshman with a copy of Portraits of Resilience, and encourage them to build a supportive community around them as they embark on a new and challenging journey at MIT.
MindHandHeart is a coalition of students, faculty, and staff working to build a healthier and more welcoming MIT community. Over time, we aim to make conversations about mental health and well-being a part of daily life at MIT.
About the book
Portraits of Resilience is a photography and narrative series in which students, faculty, and staff at MIT tell, in their own words, how they faced hardships, and emerged stronger and wiser from their experiences. In explaining what motived this project, MIT Professor Daniel Jackson writes “through their experiences, [these individuals] have gained profound insights into our human condition, how to meet adversity, and sometimes how to overcome it.”
