Carter’s post comes just three weeks after his younger brother, Aaron Carter, morreu com a idade de 34.

While Aaron and Nick had a tumultuous relationship over the years before the singer’s death, a estrela pop honored his sibling in a heartfelt Instagram tribute no início deste mês, writing about how his love for his little brotherhas never ever faded.

I have always held onto the hope, that he would somehow, someday want to walk a healthy path and eventually find the help that he so desperately needed,” Nick wrote. “Sometimes we want to blame someone or something for a loss. But the truth is that addiction and mental illness is the real villain here. I will miss my brother more than anyone will ever know. I love you Chizz., now you get a chance to finally have some peace you could never find here on earth….God, please take care of my baby brother.

Nick and Angel Carter, Aaron’s twin sister, have since launched a donation fund for youth mental health in honor of Aaron. Earlier in the month, the pair pointed fans to a donation page that will benefit On Our Sleeves, a children’s mental health organization helping families across America, per a news release.

De acordo com o comunicado, “On Our Sleeves is on a mission to provide every community in America access to free, evidenced-informed educational resources necessary for breaking stigmas about child mental health as well as educating families and advocates.

Fans can donate on the fund’s page, which features the message, “Thank you for choosing to celebrate the impact of the life of Aaron Carter with a gift of hope. By honoring Aaron, you help Nick, anjo, and their family’s commitment of helping others.
