KANSAS CITY, MO, Sept. 5, 2020 — Throughout the month of September, American Shaman – one of the nation’s leading CBD manufacturers – is observing National Self-Care Month while simultaneously helping raise awareness for National Suicide Prevention Month in partnership with The American Foundation For Suicide Prevention (AFSP).
“Self-care is important to maintaining a healthy relationship with yourself. It means doing things to take care of our minds, bodies, and souls by engaging in activities that promote well-being and reduce stress. As a company we are dedicated to bringing wellness to the world and ever focused on the welfare of our customers and fellow citizens,” said Vince Sanders, CEO of American Shaman. “We are proud to partner with AFSP in their profound mission of saving lives and bringing hope to those affected by suicide.”
American Shaman is dedicated to donating a minimum of $30,000 in September to AFSP by matching contributions generated by franchisee store sales and individual online donations. The company is also funding a corresponding month-long social media, web and advertising outreach campaign utilizing the hashtags #suicidepreventionawareness, #RealConvo, #KeepGoing and #selfcareseptember. In addition, American Shaman offers ongoing discounts for those in need, those who are low-income, and for veterans via the company’s Compassionate Care Program.
“To advance our lifesaving work it’s critical to have partners who share our passion for suicide prevention. We are grateful for American Shaman’s involvement in our cause and honored to have them join the fight to stop suicide,” said Robert Gebbia, AFSP CEO.
