I really like the latest awareness-raising event by See Change, an NGO working to change attitudes and eliminate stigma about mental health problems in Ireland.
Each of us has the power re-write the script on how mental health problems are perceived in society, and on 26 October 2011, See Change are calling for 900 people to contribute to their story which aims to break the current GUINNESS WORLD RECORD for the most people to write a story.
See Change has partnered up with Trinity College Dublin Students’ Union, Union of Students in Ireland, and Fighting Words on this GUINNESS WORLD RECORD attempt to send a message loud and clear that mental health is an important part of everyone’s story, and like every story, it can have its ups and downs, twists and turns.
Interesting infographic via The Social Break on why people unsubscribe from permission e-mails and certainly worth bearing in mind for your own email marketing efforts.
Better Together is a nationwide campaign which aims to build support for hundreds of charities, clubs and associations across the country by encouraging the public to support these good causes and make a difference in their communities.
Earlier this year, they invited charities, community clubs and associations from all over the country to showcase their work by entering an online video competition.
You can browse these videos to see how these organisations are making a difference in their community and vote or donate for your favourite video. Your vote could help a cause win one of three €3,000 cash prizes, and the cause that attracts the largest number of unique donations will win €10,000 cash in the Giving Challenge.
You can also nominate and vote for your Charity Hero - someone who is making an extraordinary difference in your community. Voting opens on 4 October and you will find full details on both competitions at
Be inspired and make a difference!
