WINNIPEG, Canada - KIDTHINK, a mental health centre based in Winnipeg, Canada, is delighted to announce that its second annual Radio-thon has been an overwhelming success. The company set itself an ambitious and challenging target to raise $150,000 from the event, which took place on the 6th of May. With donations still coming in, the registered charity is only a few thousand dollars from hitting that goal thanks to the generosity and spirit of their clients and the local community. All of the money raised will be used to deliver mental health services to children.
The date of the Radio-thon was chosen to coincide with Mental Health Week in Canada. May 7 was proclaimed National Child and Youth Mental Health Day in Manitoba. The Honourable Audrey Gordon, Minister of Mental Health, Wellness, and Recovery, proclaimed the day in Manitoba, for the second consecutive year, as part of Mental Health Week in Canada, May 3 – 9.
"Children's mental health is extremely important to everyone at KIDTHINK; it is why we do what we do and why we are driven to do everything in our power to improve the mental health of our young people," said Carmyn Aleshka, Founder of KIDTHINK. "This is our second year of doing the Radio-thon, and although it is extremely hard work and very challenging to organize and deliver, we love every second of it. Although we haven't quite hit our initial target, we are getting closer every day, and we are confident that as the donations continue to arrive, we will get there. I just wanted to say thank you to all of the team that worked so hard before, during, and after the event and to the many people who donated. We couldn't have done it without you."
