Kim Jonghyun's music and work, both with SHINee and on his own, have provided comfort to so many people around the world. As a long-term fan, donating and starting this campaign is my way of saying thank you. I hope you'll join me in passing on thanks by supporting mental health research! All donations go directly to the Brain & Behaviour Research Foundation.
Here is more information about what the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation does:
Since 1987, the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation (BBRF) has awarded more than $380 million to fund more than 5,500 grants to more than 4,500 scientists around the world.
According to the Rand Corporation, BBRF is the nation’s top non-governmental funder of mental health research grants.
The mission of the Foundation is to alleviate the suffering caused by mental illness by awarding grants that will lead to advances and breakthroughs in scientific research.
100% of contributions for research are invested in research grants to neuroscientists thanks to the generous support of two family foundations which cover BBRF operating expenses.
The Foundation only funds scientists whose research is reviewed and recommended by a world-renowned Scientific Council including Nobel Prize winners and chairs of psychiatric departments.
