A lot of our work in cause storytelling boils down to a single thing: Stigma.
Stigma is an elusive problem tied so deeply to our cultural norms, personal beliefs, and upbringing. It's created by the wrong story - a story made up of a collection of smaller narratives accumulated over a lifetime.
The only way to unravel that mess? The right story.

This work will be used to educate the public and potential donors by adding human faces with real stories to the conversation.
