Nonprofit Declines Donations From Britney Spears’ Sister

Nonprofit Declines Donations From Britney Spears' Sister

(ReliableNews.org) – The #FreeBritney movement is often credited with helping singer Britney Spears regain some control of her life after 13 years in a conservatorship. Recently, the activists involved in the movement convinced a nonprofit organization to refuse a potential donation from the pop star’s sister.

Jamie Lynn Spears announced she’d finally finished writing her memoirs, called Things I Should Have Said. The book is reportedly about her mental health struggles and also the near-fatal ATV accident that almost took her daughter’s life. She told her fans she planned to donate part of the proceeds of her book to a mental health advocacy group called ‘This Is My Brave.’

On October 18, This Is My Brave announced it would not accept any donations from Jamie Lynn after the #FreeBritney activists demanded the organization reject the money.

Although Jamie Lynn is the only member of Britney’s family who wasn’t on her payroll during the conservatorship, activists don’t believe she’s helped her sister enough. The younger Spears has long held that isn’t true. In a statement after Britney’s emotional testimony earlier this year, Jamie Lynn said she has always supported her sister. She explained although she doesn’t share the #FreeBritney hashtag on social media, she has “supported [her] sister long before there was a hashtag.”

Britney has never lashed out at her sister publicly or accused her of having a part in the conservatorship. Neither sister has responded to the recent controversy.
