The charitable foundations chosen are known for providing mental health information and support, and for continuing the fight for racial justice and representation in the media. They include Mind, a mental health charity offering information and advice to individuals in need; PressPad, which is a charitable foundation founded a month ago with an aim to diversify media; Colour of Change, the US’s largest online racial justice organization; and URL-Media, a decentralized multi-platform of Black and Brown organizations.
In return for the donations, the charities have expressed their gratitude by thanking the Duke and Duchess. On Twitter, PressPad wrote, “We are delighted to announce that we have just registered a sister charity, The PressPad Charitable Foundation, and are thrilled that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their Archewell Foundation will be among our first donors.”

Mind has also taken to Twitter to show its support for Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex who shared going through a difficult time mentally, in her conversation with Winfrey. “We applaud Meghan Markle for speaking out about her experiences of suicidal thoughts,” the tweet read. “We know that opening up in this way can be really difficult, but when high profile people talk about these experiences, it helps to break down the stigma around mental health issues.”
