Today is #BellLetsTalk Day!
“Being a champion is not just about winning,” says six-time Olympic medalist Clara Hughes. Believing that actions off the track define us as much as those on it, Clara inspires people toward success in all areas of their lives. Her candid, personal talks range from how she believes sports can change lives to her struggle with depression—fully embodying the idea that each of us can overcome challenges to become the champions we’re meant to be. Today, Clara celebrates six years as the spokesperson for the #BellLet’sTalk campaign to help end the stigma against mental illness. Last year over 6 million dollars was raised on this day alone. Today, Bell will donate 5¢ more to mental health initiatives for every:
- Text message sent* using Bell
- Mobile & long distance call made* using Bell
- Tweet using the hastag #BellLetsTalk
- Share of the Facebook image using the hastag #BellLetsTalk
We couldn’t be more proud of Clara and our other mental health speakers such as Clint Malarchuk, Margaret Trudeau, and Silken Laumann, who are helping to end the stigma around mental illness. See more Mental Health Speakers.
