Hugs for Mental Health
A HUG donation sent via text is a simple, direct contribution that is as powerful, personal and significant as a real hug.
1 in 5 Nova Scotians are facing a mental illness. If $5 was donated for every individual living with a mental illness in our province, $1 million could be raised and reinvested in community initiatives and support systems.
