Throughout the month of May, Selena’s Serendipity desserts will be partnering with the Rare Impact Fund, part of her Rare Beauty brand, donating $1 from every ice cream pint and product sold, working towards their mission of ensuring services are accessible in educational environments and underserved communities.

"Bringing awareness to mental health is something very personal to me," says Selena. "I am so proud that Serendipity Brands has committed to supporting the Rare Impact Fund and helping people gain much needed access to mental health resources."

"For me, things like music, writing, and being with friends and family make me happy," she exclusively told E! News, "so I surround myself with people and things that bring positivity and happiness to my life.”

"The more in tune I am with this, the better equipped I am to try and implement the coping skills and tools I've learned," she adds. "It's not always easy to talk about how you're feeling," Selena shares. "But having a close friend or family member you trust and can confide in is so important.”

To purchase and make a difference, Serendipity Brands is available to shop via SerendipityBrands.com, GoPuff, or Amazon -- and Serendipity3's Frrrozen Hot Chocolate Mix is available via Serendipity3.com.

Throughout the month of May, Mental Health Awareness Month, Audacy will highlight some of our past heart-to-heart talks, in an effort to help raise awareness and reduce the stigma surrounding struggles with mental health and addiction.
