Kate Spade NY Will Donate $1 Million To Support Mental Health In Honor Of Its Founder

The tragic news of Kate Spade’s death shook so many of us to our core. It was surprising to those who did not know the iconic fashion designer personally and has opened the doors for more discussion about mental health and the need for mental health awareness in this country. On Wednesday, the Kate Spade New York brand posted on Instagram their pledge to support mental health and suicide prevention.

The brand wrote, “in honor of our company founder, kate spade, our foundation is donating over $1 million to suicide prevention and mental health awareness causes, starting with $250,000 to the @crisistextline. from june 20 through june 29, 2018, the kate spade new york foundation will also match public donations made to the crisis text line, up to the amount of $100,000. to make your donation, please go to crisistextline.org/katespadeny. thank you for your generosity and support.”

Kate Spade has made such an impact on the world in the most colorful and fashionable way possible, and she will be very missed. The designer is survived by her husband, Andy Spade, and their 13-year-old daughter, Frances.
