Last spring, Denis Asselin started a pilgrimage in memory of his son Nathaniel, walking over 500 miles from his home in Philadelphia all the way to Boston. The project, Walking with Nathaniel, helped Denis raise awareness about body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), an OCD spectrum disorder that his son Nathaniel struggled with during his too-short life. The funds he raised along the way went to the International OCD Foundation to support BDD and OCD awareness and help create resources to help other families affected by BDD.
This month, Buddha Badges is contributing all of the proceeds from the sale of their badges to the Walking with Nathaniel fund at the International OCD Foundation. What are Buddha Badges, you say?
BuddhaBadges is a little not-for-profit charity-drive art project aimed at selling 1″inch [Buddha-themed] badges for a dollar each to help raise donation money for some good causes. 90% of our sales will be donated monthly to one of these causes, where the other 10% will go toward materials to make more pins!
