Donate to Kickstarter for "Mind/Game: The Unquiet Journey of Chamique Holdsclaw"

I am making a pledge to support Rick Goldsmith's documentary "Mind/Game" and I ask that you join me so that we can raise the last of the $40,000 he needs to raise by Tuesday, March 31. 

The film is about basketball player Chamique Holdsclaw who was once called the female Michael Jordan, but who found herself living with a mental illness she didn't want to be stigmatized by. I am supporting the film for a number of reasons, but one of the reasons is that I think it is time we learned how to have a national dialogue about mental illness. 

I am no expert and I thank the Champaign County Alliance For the Promotion of Acceptance, Inclusion and Respect for drawing our attention to this issue when they sponsor films at Ebertfest. (They were previously called the Champaign County Anti-Stigma Alliance.) Their work helps to challenge preconceived notions about mental health.
