About Dace 

I was born in Riga, Latvia and at the age of 16 moved to USA with my mom and sister. I graduated college with BA in Merchandising Management and currently hold a position of Payroll/Treasury Manager with a real estate investment company. My hobbies include tennis, boot camp, biking, reading and volunteering.

Cause

Most people probably believe that mental disorder “will never happen to me or someone I know."  However, mental disorders are much more common and have probably already affected all of us in one way or another.  I personally grew up with a close family member that had mental illness and like most families, we were not prepared to cope with their loved one who needed support.

Charity

If you think you or someone you know may have a mental or emotional problem, it is important to remember there is hope and help is just around the corner. I have partnered with Charity TV Global to raise funds for Journeys Dream, a Naperville, IL based charity whose main goal is to provide support and options beyond the doctor/drug world we have come to accept as the norm today. Please watch below video and join me in raising funds for an organization that is here to provide programs for you and I, and our loved ones.

Goal

My goal is to raise a minimum of $10,000. At first, it may seem like a daunting task but with the help of generous donors like you and sharing this page with others, I believe that the goal will become just another milestone in the course of life. Thank you!

Globally, every 40 seconds someone commits suicide . However, it remains a highly stigmatized and misunderstood form of disease. Because it is often invisible, the road to recovery for mental illness survivors can be lonely and challenging, and a mental illness diagnosis can leave many patients feeling isolated and scared for the future. 

The mission of Journey's Dream is to convene, develop and share the most effective and innovative solutions for mental health. As part of our efforts at Journey's Dream, over one million dollars of private funding has been invested in the development of a state-of-the-art, multimedia educational experience, the Optimal Being program. The program offers a working set of tools designed to reduce unhealthy stress and align divided thinking. With experts in each field, we are developing specific variations of this program to support groups who are at high risk of mental health challenges. Funds raised with Charity TV Global will facilitate the growth/expansion of these programs and our ability to bring innovative, effective mental health solutions to the people who need them most.
