Giant card installation to help people living with mental illness
WHAT: 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.
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
- 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.
Boffo Properties will match total donations, up to $5,000.
WHEN: A Joyful Post will be in operation from Monday to Friday November 28th through December 24th from 11 am to 2 pm.
WHERE: Harbour Centre lobby
555 W. Hastings St.
