Fundraise in Your Community
There are tons of ways you can raise money for Rethink Mental Illness.
It could be a gig, dance, quiz night, dinner party, exhibition, sports day event, or personal challenge like growing a beard or shaving your head!
Charlotte (pictured above) told us about her street party where she got the neighbours together. Everyone had a BBQ, children played on the street and Charlotte gave a speech to the guests about her story and information surrounding mental health.
It was a really lovely day and a really good turn out. We raised loads of money for charity but also it got everyone together and strengthened our community. We live in a really nice street and it helps us get to know each other better
There are so many things you could get involved with. Emma very bravely decided to shave her head as her challenge. Here's what she said:
I decided to brave the shave for Rethink Mental Illness as they are a wonderful charity that offers information, support and understanding for both individuals affected by mental health illness as well those around them. My aim was to raise awareness for the very real struggle many people go through and to fight the stigma surrounding mental health issues - talking and sharing is a huge step to recovery for many people
