Buddha Badges to donate this month’s proceeds to International OCD Foundation
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, dedicated to raising awareness about body dysmorphic disorder(BDD) and OCD in memory of Nathaniel Asselin.
