Here’s an invitation to everyone planning to be in cottage country on May 13 – please join the Weekend at the Cottage Team in support of CAMH ONE BRAVE NIGHT FOR MENTAL HEALTH!
One of my favourite things to do is wrap myself up in a wool blanket and head down to the dock to enjoy some serious late-night stargazing. The skies are especially clear this time of year, and most of the bugs stay away thanks to the cool temperatures. It’s so enjoyable, I think I could sit there stargazing all night.
In a few weeks I’ll be doing exactly that, on the evening of Friday, May 13, when Weekend at the Cottage participates in CAMH ONE BRAVE NIGHT FOR MENTAL HEALTH. Head HERE to read about this all-night challenge that raises money for CAMH’s mental health and addiction facilities.
I’ve decided to support the cause in three ways:
1) FUNDRAISING – I’ve made a personal pledge to raise money, and if you’d like to sponsor me, head HERE. On the night of the challenge, I’m going down the list of all of the people who sponsored me, and I’ll wish upon a shooting star for each and every one of you. I’ve got all night, and with all those stars, I’m committed to wishing the night away!
2) INVITATION – I’m inviting cottage owners and their guests to join the Weekend at the Cottage Team. I’m hoping that together, we show that cottage country cares. Head HERE to join the team.
3) SPREAD THE WORD – I’m writing this post in the hope of raising awareness and inspiring people to support those struggling with addiction and mental illness. Please feel free to send this link about ONE BRAVE NIGHT to everyone you think may be in a position to help.
Heartfelt thanks for allowing me to use this platform to share my hope that together we can conquer mental illness. Look for the #sunriseselfies from all of us in cottage country when we reach our goal!
One cause, one goal, ONE BRAVE NIGHT FOR MENTAL HEALTH in support of all the incredible work by the dedicated people at CAMH. I’m feeling BRAVE – how about YOU?!
Listening to great music is an important part of every Weekend at the Cottage. Here’s my favourite version of a song that seems perfect for One Brave Night – When You Wish Upon a Star – Betty Johnson. Visit iTunes to add this single to your collection.
