In an Instagram post by MSYFAO, Tana explained that there was a time in her life where a friend checking in with her was the only thing that would keep her going for another day.
I "MSYFAO came around during a time of my life that wasn’t the lightest.. truly a time where a friend checking in on me would keep me going another day. It ignited a fire in me to be that friend for others."

What is The Trevor Project?
Basically, The Trevor Project provides "crisis intervention and suicide prevention services" to the LGBTQ+ community who are under 25.
YouTuber James Charles had previously donated 50% of proceeds from his Sisters Apparel Pride Collection. However, fans had previously slammed James during a Pride Parade for posing in front of a Trevor Project banner.
What is MSYFAO? (Make Sure Your Friends Are Okay)
MSYFAO was created by Justin and Hunter Moreno, who, after watching a dramatic event occurring on a TV reality show, wondered "where are their friends, and why aren’t they helping?"
MSYFAO's vision is for a world where "meaningful conversation is the new normal", and they aim to achieve this through merch and social media to "get the world talking."
