One Brave Night

One Brave Night

I would like to introduce myself. I am Amanda Longboat and I have lived in Crown Point for six years. This neighborhood is pretty amazing and I can’t imagine raising my family anywhere else.

I will be participating in this year’s One Brave Night Challenge by staying up all night posting hourly updates to my Facebook page so supporters can follow my progress.

The Center for Addiction and Mental Health’s (CAMH) One Brave Night challenge is one in which participants raise donations and stay awake all night on April 6th to support those suffering from mental illness. Night time can be hard for those struggling with mental illness because that tends to be the time they feel most alone.

The CAMH is one of the largest hospitals for mental illness in Canada. Operating central clinical and research operations out of Toronto, and with nine other locations across the province–including one at 20 Hughson Street South, CAMH provides support to those in need.

I’m looking for community support to help me reach my fundraising goal of $1,000.00.

Every person that donates will be entered into a draw to win a gift basket. I will be drawing a name at the end of my #OneBraveNight challenge on April 6th. The winner will be contacted via Facebook. Please click the link to read my story and donate. Every little bit helps.

Feel free to share my link. As long as people are talking about mental health we are breaking the stigma.

Support the CAMH One Brave Night challenge.
