I wanted to make mention of a very special project of a dear friend of mine. Jacob Moore, a Chicago and LA-based actor who I had the privilege of directing in our TV pilot last year, has founded and championed one of the finest not-for-profit organizations I’ve come across. The group is called NØSTIGMAS, and is dedicated to suicide prevention and dealing with mental illness. Jacob and I connected over losses to suicide in our lives, and I truly appreciate his drive, his ambition, and the tireless and heartfelt work of the NØSTIGMAS staff. Here’s an amazing speech that Jacob gave about his own life and struggles, it’s heartbreaking and inspiring. I admire his courage so much, please take the time to watch it.
It would be a tremendous favor to me if you went to the NØSTIGMAS tumblr page and followed them. There’s some really amazing stuff going on there, and if you really dig deep into your heart, please donate to the organization. I pledged to Jacob to donate every year in memory of my fallen friends, in hopes that he and his staff can reach out and prevent further tragedies.
Thank you, and have a great weekend.
