The Scars Foundation will raise money and awareness for mental health
Sully Erna of Godsmack has announced the creation of The Scars Foundation to support ongoing mental health struggles facing so many. The foundation’s mission statement is as follows:
The Scars Foundation has been established by Sully Erna and the rock band Godsmack to help raise awareness of the mental health issues that so many are faced with today.
With the rise of suicides, bullying, addiction, abuse and so many other challenges, The Scars Foundation is dedicated to providing resources and tools to educate and empower people on a global level that struggle with these burdens.
You can read more about The Scars Foundation on Godsmack’s website. Sully explained a bit more about the idea:
“Scars come in all forms. They are physical and emotional. They’re traumatising and make us fear what people may think of us. But we are ALL imperfect in some way. That’s what makes us perfect and unique! EVERYONE has something that makes him or her insecure or embarrassed. But instead of hiding them or internalising them, own them and show them off to the world! Let them empower you so you can be a voice for everyone who can’t be. If we ALL wear our scars loudly and proudly, others will follow.”
Every donation to The Scars Foundation will include a download of the band’s ‘Under Your Scars’ single from their latest album When Legends Rise. The band will return to Europe this summer for a string of festival dates.
