Nonprofit Declines Donation From Jamie Lynn Spears’ Book Sales Following Backlash! This nonprofit would like to be excluded from the narrative.
ORDER A COPY OF ROB’S NEW BEST SELLING BOOK!
Last week, Jamie Lynn Spears announced she had finished her book, Things I Should Have Said, which she wrote to give herself “closure” on this chapter of her life as she tries to “share my truth the proper way.”
She also revealed that a portion of her book’s proceeds would go to the mental health nonprofit This Is My Brave. Not anymore.
“I know how scary it can be to share personal struggles, especially if you don’t feel you have the support or a safe space to do so,” Jamie Lynn wrote on Instagram. “They are doing amazing work to support and encourage people as they bravely share their experiences.”
However, the organization announced on Oct. 18 that it has rejected the Zoey 101 star’s offer to donate to their cause following public outcry about the book. Britney Spearsherself seemed to slam Things I Should Have Said on Instagram, joking that she should write a book as well, and call it “S–t, I really don’t know” or “I really care what people think.”
Amid the controversy, This Is My Brave announced on Instagram, “We have made the decision to decline the offer of receiving proceeds from the book sales.”
The statement went on, “We heard you. We’re taking action. We are deeply sorry to anyone we offended.” According to its website, their mission is to “bring stories of mental illness and addiction into the spotlight.”
Jamie Lynn promised to touch on her own mental health in the pages of her upcoming memoir.
“I’ve spent my whole life believing that I had to pretend to be perfect, even when I wasn’t,” she reflected. “So for the first time I am opening up about my own mental health, because this process challenged me to have to be painfully honest with myself, and face a lot of hard things, that I normally would have just glossed right over, like I was taught to.”
