Give some joy.

Our community wellness programming is not sustainable without community support.

Your one-time or recurring contribution helps us expand and fund GetSomeJoy's community wellness programming and resources.

We have partnered with NUBIA HOUSE CULTURAL EDUCATION, a Chicago-based 501(c)(3) organization with Federal ID # 26-1117531, that provides resources and skills for thriving with a concentration on survivors of domestic violence. All contributions are tax-deductible and contribute to our common missions of supporting marginalized communities through joy.

Make a one-time or monthly contribution to joy-flavored community wellness resources and experiences right here.

Our last Literary Therapy writing series reached over 350 people.

Over four weeks, we used writing, mindfulness and personal exploration, and group discussion to explore joy, grief, pleasure, and growth with people from over 30 states and 12 countries.

Are you down to help us spread joy year-round?

With your support, we’ll be able to do the following:

  • Offer year-round Literary Therapy writing workshops

    • (quarterly cohorts + biweekly community sessions)

  • Print + distribute Literary Therapy Exploration Workbooks

  • Sewing-for-profit workshops for domestic violence survivors

“Literary Therapy: Caregiving, Shame, Self-Love, and Recovery” is an interactive four-part experience harnessing the cathartic power of writing and vulnerability to center joy, foster connection, and cultivate tools and strategies to cope and thrive during this raggedy moment in history.

We’ll use mindfulness activities, creative writing, and group discussion in a safe + supportive community to navigate emotions connected to pouring into ourselves and others.
