Mental health nonprofit This is My Brave has declined donations from Jamie Lynn Spears after a public outcry from Britney Spears fans.
The organization wrote on social media Monday (Oct. 18th), “We hear you. This is my Brave was recently recommended to be a beneficiary organization for the proceeds from Jamie Lynn Spears’ upcoming book. We have made the decision to decline the offer of receiving proceeds from the book sales.”
A source told People that Jamie Lynn was “blindsided” by the announcement, adding, “The organization was recommended and vetted and knew we were donating, but they've been overwhelmed. Unfortunately with them backing out, they are essentially saying that one person's mental health struggles are more valid and important than another.”
