In March 2020, the entire world experienced something new and scary. A pandemic that confined us to our homes suddenly and changed the way we lived, worked and attended school. Now more than ever, our youth need our help and support. We wanted to continue the theme of introducing you “virtually” to those who are directly impacted by your generous support. HEADSTRONG helps thousands of youth achieve their full potential by being brave, reaching out and speaking up about mental health. Stigma is keeping many people from seeking the help they need when they need it most.
In this pandemic context that limits gatherings, we wanted to introduce you “virtually” to people who, on a daily basis, make a great effort to help our seniors get through this storm that is significantly affecting their mental health. It is a pleasure to introduce Chantal Rozon, a recreationist and recreation coordinator at Ste. Anne’s Hospital. You will realize from this viewing, the importance of your donations and how they have a real impact on the lives of hundreds of vulnerable persons, including our veterans of the Second World War and the Korean War. We thank you for your continued and generous support. We are stronger together always. Thank you to the Quebec Veterans Foundation for preparing such a thoughtful video.
After careful consideration of the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we have made the difficult yet prudent decision to postpone our Gala to September 23, 2021. Our collective health, safety and well-being remain our top priority. Although we are being confronted with an unprecedented crisis, we remain steadfast and unwavering in our commitment to support youth mental health and military-related PTSD. Furthermore, we are honored to have provided pandemic-related support. In these times of uncertainty, our collaboration is that much more crucial. If you would like to make a donation or purchase a table for 2021, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
