A virtual event is a great option for those who have personal or team challenges they are fundraising for. Innovative ideas for community events include hosting workshops, game nights, concerts, auctions; the possibilities are endless!
Virtual events are great for getting your family, friends, and colleagues involved with the Mental Health Foundation.
If you’re searching for a meaningful way to celebrate, please consider asking family and friends to donate to the Mental Health Foundation in lieu of birthday, wedding, or anniversary gifts.
Honour someone loved and lost by raising donations in their name. Create a tribute page with a thoughtful story and a photo of the individual. Share the link with family and friends to help spread awareness and raise funds for the Mental Health Foundation.
