This festive season, Action Mental Health is ‘Lighting Up Christmas’ – shining a light on mental health in Northern Ireland, and on what YOU can do to help us raise money to support our invaluable recovery and resilience services.
For Christmas 2019 you might be thinking of a Christmas gift or gesture that will really count, and to make a positive difference to people living with mental ill-health.
Action Mental Health champions moves towards a society that actively values and supports people on their journey to better mental health and with the famously generous people of Northern Ireland by our side, our mission can become a reality.
Christmas is not an easy time for everyone. So while you’re enjoying the festive frolics, a friend, family member or neighbour might not be looking forward to this time of year. So, to share a little light this Christmas time, offer a listening ear to someone who might be among those dreading the period. By being willing to actively listen, you can make a massive difference.
So if you would like to take part this year and help AMH ‘Light Up Christmas’ by fundraising, the only thing limiting you is your imagination.
You can get the ball rolling by hosting your very own fundraising event at home, with friends or work colleagues, in schools and colleges – it’s up to. We have fundraising packs to give the seasonal spirit of giving a green light, whatever you’re planning.
You could host a coffee and carols morning, a Christmas games day, or a seasonal sponsored walk or even a festive fancy dress event – whatever you wish, just get creative and get in touch to tell us what you’re planning. AMH’s fundraising kits are jammed full of lots of hints, tips and materials – everything you need to get the fundraising effort of your choice underway.
Whatever you raise, you’ll be helping AMH change the lives of people across Northern Ireland living with mental ill-health.
Every donation makes a difference.
