This May, we teamed up with The ABGB for a special Hell Yes Project to celebrate Mental Health Month. For one amazing night, the SIMS office became an art studio as our teams of volunteers hand designed 700 postcards with drawings and messages of hope. We sent them to SIMS clients to remind them that we support them and appreciate everything they do to make Austin so incredible.
Take a look at some of the postcards we created together, and get involved with the SIMS and Hell Yes Project volunteer teams!
On Vinyl Media launched their online local music merch shop in late 2018, with 50% of profits going to SIMS Foundation and HAAM. This effort continues throughout 2019 as part of On Vinyl’s effort to build a stronger local music community. With new artists steadily being added to the store, this is the place to go to support your favorite Austin musicians and music nonprofits!
