Target: Demi Lovato, singer
Goal: Thank Demi Lovato for creating a scholarship that would cover the costs of getting treatment for mental illness and addiction
American superstar singer Demi Lovato has dedicated a lot of her time and effort in recent years to help people battle their mental disorders and inspire them to get help. Most recently she has founded The Lovato Treatment Scholarship, which is a scholarship created to provide financial help for people who need to get treated for mental health and addiction issues. She created this scholarship to honor her dad, who passed away from a combination of these same problems. The scholarship is another cause-related achievement for Demi, who still fights for anti-bullying, has helped kids get school supplies and has supported organizations that improve the quality of education among many other causes.
In 2012 Demi herself checked into a rehabilitation center to get help for her eating disorder and self-harming. She knows first-hand how difficult it is to deal with mental illness, having been diagnosed bipolar, and suffering from addiction issues. Demi recognizes the importance of getting professional help, because of the danger these issues may impose on one’s health and that they can also be life-threatening. She actively raising awareness to educate people on how common these illnesses are and how they affect teens, young adults and adults in many different ways.
Sign this petition to commend Demi Lovato for her continuous effort to support these important causes and caring to make this world a better place. Thank her for founding The Lovato Treatment Scholarship to help cover the costs of medical treatment that might potentially save the lives of many people who otherwise would not be able to afford it. The scholarship fund would cover medical expenses for treatment, including the costs for a transitional home. Demi is giving people a life-saving opportunity to be in control of their lives and well-being and therefore her efforts should be recognized as such.
