the 1690 initiative

Mission of the project

I’d like to announce the beginning of the 1690 initiative to benefit mental health.

The way this works is very simple:

If you or someone you know is going through tough times and could use some positivity,
simply Venmo request $16.90 from the handle @initiative1690 for “sunshine” or ☀️.
The transaction will be accepted immediately. Then take the money and treat yourself to a nice lunch as a feel-good treat.

I’ve personally taken some money out of my savings to cover some meals, but if you are in a position to help out you can donate to the Venmo account as well. Some of my friends and family members have already donated which is awesome. I know this will help many people.

Let’s make it happen.

SHARE this post and refer it to a friend in need of a little sunshine so we can get the word out. Thanks!
