On May 1st, get your Onesie on!

CMHA’s Mental Health Week is an annual national event that takes place during May 1-7

The Canadian Mental Health Association Kelowna encourages people from all walks of life to learn, talk, reflect and engage with others on all issues relating to mental health. We have all seen too many tragedies, life ended too soon, and circumstances we do not understand. But we can all help by doing something small, something different, something fun!

On May 1st Teresa May and Hiilite Web Design and Marketing SEO, SEM Agency in Kelowna is starting a Fundraising Initiative to challenge other local businesses, universities, and schools to participate in supporting the Canadian Mental Health Association Kelowna.

We hope that after this year, it will become an annual event and will catch on across the country and become a national event!

“Hugs and human connection can help with wellness and recovery. On May 1st, show someone you care!”

Get your ONESIE on…

Wear your favourite ONESIE to school or to work and make a donation to Canadian Mental Health Association Kelowna. Collect a loonie for every hug you receive while wearing your ONESIE and add that to your donation!

Get the word out…

Submit a photo of your group wearing ONESIES to facebook.com/myKelowna.ca. A special prize will be awarded to the individual or team who collects the most donations. Challenge your friends and co-workers to help raise awareness for mental health!

Any amount of $20 or more will receive a tax receipt from CMHA Kelowna. Drop your donations off at Hiilite at115-1690 Water Street, Kelowna and mark the envelope CMHA Kelowna. Or contact Teresa May 250-469-2928 to come and pick up at your office. The winner will also be awarded a new ONESIE to wear for the next ONESIES event!
