Selena calls for birthday gift with a purpose
Selena Gomez celebrated her 31st birthday with a heartfelt message to her fans, urging them to give back through the Rare Impact Fund. The star, known for her work on “Only Murders in the Building,” took to Instagram to express her gratitude for the impact the fund has had on mental health services for young people. She wrote, “This is my true passion in life,” asking her followers to donate instead of giving her traditional gifts. Fans showered Gomez with love and birthday wishes in the comments, acknowledging her positive influence on their lives.
Gomez’s commitment to mental health awareness led her to establish the Rare Impact Fund in 2020. The fund aims to address mental health and self-acceptance issues, a cause close to Selena’s heart. Last year, she bravely opened up about her own mental health journey, revealing her diagnosis of bipolar disorder in 2020. The “Calm Down” singer has been vocal about her struggles, sharing her past feelings of not wanting to live during her “Revival” tour in 2016. Her candidness has resonated with many, and she continues to use her platform to advocate for mental health.
Selena has also highlighted the importance of mental wellbeing by taking breaks from social media. To protect herself from negative comments and drama, she has stepped away from the virtual world on several occasions. Most recently, she announced a hiatus from social media after facing online drama involving her ex, Justin Bieber‘s wife, Hailey Bieber. Gomez’s actions serve as a reminder of the significance of self-care and setting boundaries when it comes to online interactions.

On her special day, Selena Gomez made it clear that her birthday wish was for people to support the Rare Impact Fund. She urged her fans to donate, emphasizing the positive impact their contributions could have on mental health services. By encouraging others to give back, Gomez continues to show that her passion for mental health goes beyond herself and extends to helping others who may be struggling. Her birthday message serves as a reminder that even small acts of kindness and support can make a significant difference in someone’s life.
