Pineapple Support, the adult industry’s leading mental health nonprofit, is pleased to welcome AltPlayGround as a supporter-level sponsor. The open lifestyle community joins over fifty adult businesses and organizations in committing funds and resources to the organization.
“As an open lifestyle community we share much of the same attitudes and values around sexuality as the porn industry,” says Mike McDonald, Director of Marketing at APG. “The work Pineapple Support is doing in providing mental health therapy services to its performers, but also their efforts towards eliminating the stigma around sex work and mental health, is something we truly commend them for. AltPlayGround is proud to become an official supporter of this great organization.”
Pineapple Support was founded by British performer Leya Tanit in 2018, after a string of losses in the adult industry from depression and other mental illnesses. The organisation, which is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit in the United States and a registered charity in the UK, has so far connected over 1500 adult performers to mental health services, including free and low-cost, therapy, counseling and emotional support.
“We are thrilled to have the support of AltPlayGround,” says Tanit. “Tax-deductible donations like these allow us to reach even more performers with mental health services and emotional support, which is incredibly important right now.”
The organisation is now spending almost triple as much each month on treatment compared to prior to COVID. To find out more about becoming a sponsor of Pineapple Support, please visit https://pineapplesupport.org/sponsorship/.
