The donations come several weeks after Kate was found dead in her New York City apartment. Officials said she hanged herself.

"Our foundation is donating over $1 million to these causes, starting with $250,000 to [Crisis Text Line]," the tweet said. "From june 20-29, 2018, it'll also match public donations made to [Crisis Text Line], up to $100,000."

Less than 24 hours after the donation drive was launched, one-fifth of the $100,000 goal had been met.

The Crisis Text Line is a free, 24-hour confidential text message service for people suffering from mental health issues and suicidal thoughts.

Kate Spade New York also says it will host a Global Mental Health Awareness Day for employees as part of its Wellness Program.

After Kate's death, which rocked Hollywood, a scene she was a part of, Kate's brother-in-law, David Spade, donated $100,000 to the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
