I launched the Be Kind Today campaign to provide a subtle reminder that those struggling with mental health challenges need our understanding, compassion and patience.
The idea is simple - wear a be Kind Today badge as a mental health ally, to show that you will treat them with kindness; wear a badge when you feel mentally fragile and sensitive to remind people to give you those few extra seconds to interact and stay calm.
I want to be able to give everyone who wants one a badge, and so the fundraising is to be able to buy more badges and send them out to people. if I get enough funds, I can buy in sufficient enough bulk that I can start visiting towns around the UK to hand them out.
Your help will pay for more badges, for the postage costs and if there is any left, will help me continue to promote the campaign.
This campaign was started as part of my business, but any funds raised will be separate to my business (I'm in the process of setting up a new account for this campaign as a non profit).
I truly believe that human beings have a huge capacity for kindness, but the hustle and bustle of everyday life its in the way of us remembering that. Please help me remind everyone to Be Kind Today.
