From 2015 to 2020, I’ve somehow managed to sustain The Artidote’s online operations single-handedly; the countless hours of research for the curated content I share, the community management, the creation of original initiatives (Breather Series, ArtidoteLifelines, SnapThoughts, etc.) to nurture our mental health and the emotional-labor necessary to handle it all. It’s been such a heart & soul-filling journey. To be vulnerably honest, one that has transformed my life.

What started out as a passion project fueled by love—the strongest currency in the world—has organically grown into not only something that has personally given me so much clarity of purpose but has, in the best and most unbelievable of scenarios, saved lives.

And even though I still have tons of love in the bank to nurture and grow The Artidote further, at the moment I’m in need of your support to sustain the practicalities that come with the job. I know these are very difficult times for all of us, so your support today is especially appreciated.

Thank you for believing in the purpose of this initiative.

All my love,
Jovanny Varela Ferreyra
