Stay Up from Darkness to Light with CAMH and The Chic Canuck
Posted: May 01 2015
On May 29 The Chic Canuck will be staying up from Darkness to Light with CAMH to help raise funds and awareness for mental health initiatives. Join us!
Here at The Chic Canuck, we make no secret of our love of local - local food, local shopping, local causes - which is why we are excited and honoured to be partnering with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) to support their new Darkness to Light campaign.
On May 29, 2015 we’ll be staying up all night, along with many others, to help raise awareness about mental illness. This isn’t the first time we’ve stayed up all night—Netflix-watching non stop has prepared us well—but it will be the first time we’ve done it for a great cause. The best news is—you can help! You can donate money to an individual or a team to help raise funds, or you can make sure to participate yourself by registering or joining a team—might we suggest The Chic Canuck team? We’re planning something special for the night, so stay tuned for more details about how we’re planning to stay up and how you can join us!
The money raised from this all-night challenge will support improvements to access to care, research for better treatments and building more spaces for healing. For more information about what your donation contributes to click HERE. Whatever you’re doing on May 29—hanging out with friends, sleeping, Netflix-ing all night—please take the time to go to the CAMH website and learn more about the center and its efforts, and please, if you can, donate. CAMH also has volunteer opportunities for those looking to get more involved.
