Giant card installation to help people living with mental illness

joyful-post-2

This Christmas, Harbour Centre and the Vancouver Lookout, in partnership with The Kettle Society, are inviting Vancouverites to make A Joyful Post to support people living with mental illness.

You can make “A Joyful Post” from 11am – 2pm daily at Harbour Centre until Dec. 24th.

Harbour Centre’s lobby will house a large-scale, festive installation where the public can select, personalize, and hang Christmas cards for Kettle members. The signed cards will then be shared with the Kettle community in a small but important gesture to help brighten what can be a very difficult time of year.

A minimum donation of $5 is suggested with 100% of proceeds going to The Kettle Society, a local non-profit that assists people living with mental illness.

Funds will be used to provide items and experiences that Kettle mental health clients have identified as able to connect them to others, boost their self-esteem, or help lift their day. Items such as transit tickets, a good cup of coffee, haircuts, and outings to local attractions and events.

Participants are urged to share their post on social media using #AJoyfulPost and encourage their networks to take part.

Donations will generously matched by Boffo Properties (up to $5,000).

A Joyful Post launch was a big success!
