Bri Vieira is a blogger and writer who focuses on mental health and LGBTQ+ communities. She wanted to find a way to give back to her community through a nonprofit that is close to home and touches all the topics she is the most passionate about, including LGBTQ+ support, mental health, and giving back to the Boston community that has given her so much over the past 8 years. So Bri decided to create these ‘Wander’ t-shirts.
Bri donated 100% of the profit made from each shirt to The Boston Alliance of LGBTQ+ Youth (BAGLY). BAGLY is an organization committed to social justice, and their advocacy work challenges oppression and disparities that LGBTQ+ youth face.
Wherever you go, wherever you wander – YOU ARE NEVER ALONE.
Bri wants to remind people that, “we are all wandering throughout life. Trying to find our way. We are all on our own journey trying to find our purpose. Trying to learn how to navigate our struggles. Whether it be mental illness, sexual identity, finances, work, family, ANYTHING: we are all on a journey. The most important thing to remember while on that journey – despite how lonely it might get is this: someone, somewhere has felt what you are feeling. Someone is going through similar hardships that you are going through. There is someone who can empathize with you. There’s always someone out there to offer support, compassion, and love.”
She plans to continue to use her platform to help people on their journeys and remind them there are people out there to support them.
