Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Sep 2022, 11:59 PM

We are a group of Student Initiated VIA team from Raffles Girls School (RGS). Our project aims to bridge the gap in people's understanding of common mental health conditions, encourage the student population to adopt a more accepting attitude towards people with mental health conditions, and promote mental health literacy to create a more open and accepting society where mental health is embraced and not shunned. By raising awareness about mental health conditions and advocating against stigma, we hope to extend a positive sphere of influence both within and outside of the school community.

Through this campaign, we hope to promote mental health well-being amongst the students by showing love through sending mood socks to their friends and to raise funds for the beneficiaries of SAMH so that they will have more resources that will benefit them. We hope that purchasing mood socks for their friends/ themselves can not only help the RGS students to do good and help raise funds for those with mental health conditions but show support to their friends and/or self-care (depending if they are buying for friends and/or themselves). This is because gifting donuts to oneself or one's friends is an excellent way to showcase their care, appreciation and love for each other. The receiver will also be reminded that they are not alone and people do care about them. Orders will be distributed in may, in alignment with Friendship Month in September.
