Made by Our Volunteers
Some of our creatively-inclined volunteers have side projects in addition to the work they do for us. When you purchase one of their products, you are supporting IBPF in two ways: you are supporting our volunteers who we are so grateful for, and a percentage of your purchase is donated to IBPF.
"The mission of Bipolar Beast is to empower people with bipolar disorder to live full, productive, and creative lives. We focus on ability rather than disability, strengths rather than deficits, and mental wellness rather than mental illness. At our Bipolar Beast Shop, you'll find all kinds of "Beat the Beast" items designed to remind you that you have the power to manage bipolar disorder."
A memoir by one of our volunteers, Christine.
"An uncut, raw and gripping story of one woman's life struggle with the extreme highs and lows of Bipolar I Disorder. The denial of her diagnosis and the eventual acceptance of her medication and disease. She takes us from her innocence as a child to her adult criminal lifestyle, which led to a subsequent 70 month federal prison sentence for securities fraud. A tale so unbelievable and elements so disturbing, you would swear you were reading fiction."
3rd Party Promotions
These are offered by various third parties and a portion of your purchase is donated to IBPF.
I have always been a creative person, expressing myself creatively has helped me separate myself from my disorder. Bipolar may be a driving force behind my creativity but I poor my heart and soul into what I create. Recently I’ve decided to specify my creative focus to a particular area, jewelry. It started as a hobby but I found it so therapeutic I wanted to do more with it. I created my shop, “Restless Relics” on Etsy.
Bead Relief partners with many charities to make bracelets and other jewelry. "This Bracelet design was inspired by IBPF, and is used to raise awareness and donations for their cause. Each bracelet is hand made using our unique beads, elastic band, and finished with our signature copper BEAD RELIEF tag." The colors in our bracelet are from our logo.
The Bipolar Disorder Awareness bracelet is part of a collection of awareness bracelets. "The Charity Collection was created to give back to charities all over the world through the sale of individual charity bracelets. In 2013 we were able to donate over $140,000 to 190+ charity organizations and we’ve only grown since then."
