Throughout October, we are asking our supporters to carry an item of their choosing for a full 24hours, to represent the invisible burden that people with mental health difficulties carry every single day.
How to take part:
1) Choose an item to carry for a full day! Perhaps you have a giant teddy bear? An orange teapot? An exercise ball? Perhaps a tin of beans?! Maybe it’s something that means something to you about your mental health. Feel free to get creative with this.
2) Start the day with posting a selfie with your object online, stating “I’m Carrying the Burden to support Leeds Mind because…” (example: I’m Carrying the Burden to support Leeds Mind because I want to support other people like me who struggle with depression #CarrytheBurden)
3) Share your updates throughout the day, using the hashtag #CarrytheBurden
4) Finish your day with your final update, making a donation to Leeds Mind, and nominate 3 friends to take on the challenge during October.
