Sm;tten Love Foundation Merchandise To help fund the foundation to do community work and give Pro-Bono Counselling and Support.
The Background Story:
The Founder The Foundation was established in 2022 by Joanita Smit. Her passion for Mental Health and Abuse are fueled by personal experience as a sexually abused survivor and being diagnosed with mental health disorders. Her words and actions are her testimony that you can live a "normal" life even if you suffer from mental health disorders or been a victim of abuse.
The Name: When it came to choosing a name for her foundation, she knew that it had to be something unique, personal and part of her passion. She is a true believer that love can conquer all and this had to be part of the name. The unique part is a combination of her surname and passion. She decided to use Smitten but replacing the i with a semicolon. Why the semicolon? It symbolize affirmation and solidarity against suicide "my story isn't over yet"
The Merchandise: The Sm;tten Love Foundation Merchandise are providing financial support in order for her to do community work and provide Pro-Bono service.
