A Special Announcement

When I first started this blog one of my very first entries was during Mental Health Week. I discussed my history of depression and how one of my great passions is to remove the stigma of mental illness in the media and community. You can read that post here.

Well, this year during Mental Health Week in October I will be doing something actionable on removing this stigma and bringing awareness to mental health in Australia. I will be hosting a “Get Creative Auction” proudly supporting beyondblue!

Proudly supporting beyondblue!

I have my Authority to Fundraise letter and I am about to begin accepting donations to the auction.

“Get Creative” is about using our gifts and talents to express ourselves and to regain and maintain our wellbeing. Creativity is instrumental to my wellbeing – from painting to express how I was feeling in the depths of my first breakdown into depression, to creating beautiful jewellery for my business Cordelle Designs today – it feeds that part of my soul that strives to make something beautiful out of the mess.

All items accepted into the auction will be in keeping with the “Get Creative” mentality – handmade, personally crafted and an expression of the donor’s own creativity.

I am so excited about this opportunity to fundraise for beyondblue as this organisation was fundamental in supporting me and my husband as carer during my darkest times of depression.

There will be more updates in the coming weeks and months as things get organised but mark it in your diaries now!

Mental Health Week: 6th – 13th October, 2013 | “Get Creative Auction” held on the Cordelle Designs Facebook page.

  1. I would love to be involved, having also pulled myself through a labyrinth of darkness and into true happiness by following what I love doing – making beautiful things!

    • Thank you so much Trish! I will be opening for donations to the auction very soon so keep an eye on my page and I will also announce on my blog (plus you know where to find me!) 🙂 Looking forward to working with you x
