Our Campaign Story

ends 31 May 2022, 11:59 PM

Breathing well is one of the most important yet under-used ways to regulate our nervous system. Breathing well allows us to calm our minds, relief stress and get better sleep.

Breathe for mental wellness - how does it work ?
1.Starting from 27th April Wed, in the span of 7 days, we will release regular videos/audio/visuals to guide people on how to breathe better. This will be simple do-it-yourself basic activities that anyone can follow, whether you're at home, in the office or better yet, out in the open fields. This will help everyone, especially caregivers of persons with mental health issues, to kickstart their own self-care.

2. Follow us on our instagram! The videos/audio will be uploaded on our Instagram page https://www.instagram.com/exhale.healingspace/

3. Share them with friends and do it together!

4. Make a donation on this giving.sg page to support CAL for Mental Wellness

5. On 4th May Wed 7.30pm, we will host a live zoom call where all are welcome to learn more about breathing better, ask questions and see how you can incorporate healthy breathing in your daily life. Book here https://exhale.as.me/7dayreset

All you need is 5 mins a day to practice proper breathing and change the way you live your life!

About Campaign

CAL FOR MENTAL WELLNESS (C4MW) aims to raise funds for Caregivers Alliance Limited (CAL) to continue supporting caregivers of persons with mental health issues in the community. Tapping on the Tote Board Enhanced Fund-Raising Programme, we aim to raise $500,000, for dollar-to-dollar matching from the Government, capped at $250,000.

Besides raising funds, the campaign aims to boost mental health awareness and literacy among the general public. We also hope to spread awareness about the availability of fully-funded programmes and services for caregivers of people with mental health issues, that are offered by CAL.

We are rallying the community and caregivers to get creative and start their own mini campaigns in support of the cause. Anyone interested to participate can choose any activity and seek donations to complete milestones or commitments. For example, "If I receive $10,000 in donations, I will cycle around the island" or "If I receive $500 I will conduct a zoom baking class for 10 people".

CAL will lead several activities that anyone can participate in. Suggestions for campaigns will be provided on our website (cal4mentalwellness.sg), and social media, and we will feature public-led campaigns throughout the four week period to inspire and motivate others. All campaign creators will be referred to as Mental Wellness Champions (MWCs). This sets the ball rolling for CAL's foray into developing a pool of MWCs within the community.
