We know that Christmas can be a difficult time for many people and this year it will be even more challenging for some due to the ongoing pandemic.
To compliment Action Mental Health’s Elfie fundraising campaign, today we are delighted to launch Elfie’s very special advent calendar.
Just as the traditional chocolate advent calendar brings joy to children who delight in prising open the day’s perforated window for a delicious treat, Action Mental Health’s special advent calendar is dedicated to spreading nothing but joy in a year many will be happy to put behind us.
We at Action Mental Health just want to make Christmas 2020 a whole lot brighter as we rally our way through difficult times. We’ll bring you acts of kindness, tips on looking after your mental health, uplifting and motivational stories and quotes, favourite age-old Christmas traditions, special recipes and festive carols, movies or books – or whatever it is that helps make you smile and lifts your mood.
Alongside the advent calendar, our Elfie Day on December 11th is aimed at raising funds to support Action Mental Health’s’ local services. For example, raising £65 could help to pay for a counselling session for a local person who is struggling to cope; £285 could help to pay for a 6 week arts-based therapy programme for a child; £500 could help to pay for specialist training to help people develop strategies for dealing with stress & anxiety; £1000 could help to pay for a resilience building programme to be delivered in a local primary school and £2000 could help to pay for a family therapy Intervention programme for local families.
AMH has produced a comprehensive Fundraising Pack to provide a host of ideas on how to best to mark Elfie day, so visit amh.org.uk, email [email protected] or call the fundraising elves on 028 9182 8494.
