Proceeds from a unique calendar produced by the Halifax Harbour Bridges will help CMHA NS provide more Nova Scotians with free mental health programming and education.
The 26-page wall calendar sold by Halifax Harbour Bridges (HHB) over the holiday season featured images of the Angus L Macdonald Bridge and the A Murray MacKay Bridge taken by a variety of bridge-loving photographers.
Canada’s fourth and fifth longest suspension bridges are featured from above, below, and in every season.
“They are photos taken by people who obviously feel a special connection with the bridges,” said HHB Manager and CEO Steve Snider. “We first spotted them in social media and then reached out to the photographers to see if they wanted to be part of a limited edition fundraising calendar.”
Snider continues, noting that the calendars would make excellent stocking stuffers for those who may be far from home.
“The proceeds from this calendar could, for example, allow us to run a peer support program or provide 25 people with free mental health education through our THRIVE program — it [these funds] can do a lot of good in the community and we are so grateful for it,” said CMHA Nova Scotia Executive Director Karn Nichols.
“The need for our programs, support and resources has never been greater, so every little bit helps.”
