Project: YOU MATTER.

Our Campaign Storyends 30 Dec 2017, 11:59 PM
I was ready to donate $35 for the campaign to contribute to the cost of a starter kit for a trainee, and then I thought to myself... can I do more with this $35?
I decided to put my hobby into good use and created "Project: YOU MATTER.".
1) What is "Project: YOU MATTER."?
All proceeds from this project will go to SAMH. With every $3 donated, you will be entitled to a free postcard designed by me (design is per the first picture as shown in this campaign)!
Write an encouraging message on the postcard for a family member/friend/neighbour/colleague/random stranger, or simply keep the postcard as a reminder that YOU MATTER!
2) How do I receive the postcards?
The postcards will be mailed to you when you send these two things to [email protected]
- A screenshot of an invoice or proof of your contribution to "Project: YOU MATTER."
- A valid mailing address
Most agree that the workplace environment has a heavy influence on an individual's mental well-being. It often is a cornerstone from which a person makes a meaningful contribution to oneself and to community life.
For people with mental health conditions such as depression, bipolar disorder, mood disorders, anxiety disorder, and schizophrenia, finding employment or returning to work and retaining a job after treatment is often a challenge. Most often they are faced with stigma and rejections.
MINDSET Learning Hub provides those on the way to recovery an opportunity for employment. They undertake workplace skills training and are offered job placements.
Each donation of $35 will go towards a starter kit for a trainee. The starter kit consists of a backpack, pen, notebook, tumbler, and an ez-link card.
With your support, we can make "Mental Wellness For All" a reality!
Established in December 1968, SAMH seeks to promote mental health, to prevent mental illness, and to improve the care and rehabilitation of the mentally ill and the emotionally disturbed.
Your generous contributions will help fund SAMH programmes for promotion of mental wellness, prevention and reduction of mental health concerns, rehabilitation and support for persons with mental illness and support services for caregivers. These programmes will further contribute to the increased mental well-being of people in Singapore.
