A Nonprofit Organization Declined A Donation From Jamie Lynn Spears
The whole mission statement of a nonprofit organization is right in the name. Are they eyeball-deep in profits? (Fancy French voice) Non. Non, they are not, usually at least. So how does such an organization get the money they need? With donations, of course! Generous contributions by donors like you! Well, not you, Jamie Lynn Spears. Jamie Lynn recently tried to dump some cash on a charity, and they asked her to kindly put down her checkbook because they did not want any of her money. Tell me your nonprofit is #FreeBritney without telling me you’re #FreeBritney.
This donation situation is directly related to Jamie Lynn’s forthcoming memoir, Things I Should Have Said. You would think that the messiest part of the lead-up to Jamie Lynn’s memoir release would have been her attempt to shamelessly piggyback on her older sister’s career with the previous title, I Must Confess. But nope. Jamie Lynn’s memoir is scheduled to be released on January 18, 2022, and apparently, Jamie Lynn was looking for a charity to give some of the profits of her book sales to. One nonprofit’s name reportedly came up in conversation, This Is My Brave, which is a group that supports and empowers people to share their stories about mental illness. It wasn’t officially announced as Jamie Lynn’s choice, but word clearly got around, because This Is My Brave addressed the situation on Instagram and explained that they will not accept a donation from Jamie Lynn Spears.
So now Jamie Lynn needs to find another charity that will accept her money. Why do I feel like it’s going to end up being a very recently-registered non-profit called Hand Outs for Jamie Spears?
