The Island Friends Jr. Guild was started on Mercer Island, Washington in March of 2015. We came to know that the Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine Unit (PBMU) at Seattle Children’s Hospital did not receive any fundraising support from any guilds. We decided to create a guild whose sole purpose was the PBMU. Today, this guild is more than earning a reward, but to help raise mental health awareness in our community and support a very important unit. We are the first and only guild in the PNW to be focused on the PBMU. Since 2015, we have raised over $16,000 for the unit through various events and fundraisers, including middle school socials and fashion marketplaces. As well as partnering with Coco Beza to sell products benefitting the guild. Thank you for your support!!
We were featured on the CEO's Instagram!
This year we were in the guild news not once, but twice!
We have also been on Q13 News for Mental Health Awareness Month, the Mercer Island Living, and featured on the Seattle Children's Instagram!
