Supporting Mental Health in Your Community and Across Canada!

Subject: Supporting Mental Health in Our Community and Across Canada!

We are sharing exciting news! The HatsON™ For Canada is collaborating with Canadian Mental Health Association National (CMHA) to implement an awareness and fundraising campaign to support mental health. The HatsON™ For Canada campaign is being launched in 2017, celebrating Canada’s 150th anniversary. What a great way to demonstrate to everyone how important Mental Health is in Canada, Celebrating Minds One HatsON at a Time!!

Our Chamber is encouraging and challenging members to participate:

Become involved in the campaign, supporting our local chamber’s campaign, by purchasing HatsON™ to build our local HatsON For Canada team. We are suggesting that each chamber member purchase a minimum of 10 hats (order form attached), to share with employees, friends and gift to clients. This will help to launch the campaign in our community.

Take HatsON orders in your networks/company/neighbourhood, increasing sales and funds raised to support Mental Health both locally for our community and through CMHA National.

We challenge all Chamber of Commerce members across Canada to participate in the HatsON Challenge. The most people wearing official HatsON in one place at one time will be the Canadian HatsON Champions in 2017. What a way to demonstrate to everyone how important Mental Health is, Celebrating Minds One HatsON at a Time by gathering together as local chamber members supporting this important cause.

Let’s do it! Contact me, or Lauren at HatsON 1-866-258-9517 Ext. 104 to get started and Get Your HatsON!
