World Mental Health Day - Light Up Purple

2014 2nd Light up the world purpleHello - I am writing in hopes of gathering more people who will support World Mental Health Day on October 10th.  Just wearing something with purple in it will make the difference towards more awareness, discussion and acceptance.
 

Amanda's Legacy is trying to get more Mental Health Awareness out there once again for the second year.  I am writing in hopes that we can get support from yourselves and your organizations to add to our list. PURPLE is the colour.  We have gotten commitments from various landmarks to light up purple.  As well as, people from all around to wear purple or do something purple that day to bring attention to Mental Health Awareness and Wellness.  
With respect to support, there is never enough.  We have a Caring Supporters Wall on the website and hoping that the names will grow on it as we move closer to October 10th.  We have also received support from the World Federation of Mental Health for this campaign.

2014 2nd Light up the world purple
On October 10, 2013, the Amanda Todd Legacy started a campaign of awareness called Light Up the World Purple for World Mental Health Day

World Mental Health Day has also been in existence since 1992 on the same date each year.  This was also the date that my daughter Amanda Todd passed away.  The awareness related to bullying and mental health is a worldwide campaign that is never ending but also needs so much advocating and awareness about.   There are many people both young and old who are suffering the effects of depression and other effects of mental health.  We want to decrease the potential for tragic stories.

 It is hoped that communities and organizations will support and participate in the PURPLE awareness campaign for World Mental Health Day on October 10th entitled Light Up the World Purple 2014.  (WMH Day has been around since 1992 but many unfortunately don’t know this.)   

Please click on the link of Light Up the World Purple - http://lightuppurple2014.weebly.com - to view the slideshow from last years campaign.


Light Up Purple is not limited to purple lights.  Last year schools and businesses wore purple clothing, made purple ribbons and created purple activities.  This is a time to get more involved in the discussions related to mental health in addition to bullying awareness.  This in turn creates a safer world for not only our children but our adults.  


Some of the places around the world included:  LAX Airport pylons, Niagara Falls, CN Tower, Ottawa buildings, Austrailia, Science World, BC Place,  and more.  This year we hope to continue to get more people and places involved.  


The World Federation of Mental Health has also supported this awareness campaign to get as many people to understand what mental health and wellness is all about. 


I am requesting that your group or company would consider being involved with shining purple to help highlight Mental Health Awareness this October 10 2014.  As the date approaches, it is hoped that people and organizations will take and send photos of their purple for our #lightuppurple photo album.


Thank you for your consideration. Please let us know if you are a supporter and your business/organization will be added to our list of Caring Supporters on the Light Up Purple website.
