Who: Carlton Cards
What: The greeting card company is supporting the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) this Mental Health Awareness Month (October) with a national campaign.
With its retail partners, Carlton Cards is encouraging Canadians to send a greeting card to those they care about in support of the CMHA.
Each time someone buys one of the company’s greeting cards in October, a portion of the proceeds, up to $25,000 total, will be donated to the organization.
“At Carlton Cards, we understand the emotional benefit that card sending has on mental health,” Rod Sturtridge, president of Carlton Cards, said in a statement. “Partnering with our retailers to support the CMHA again this year is a great opportunity to promote social connection and support mental health for Canadians.”
