Firstly, I wanted to say a heart felt thank you to everyone for your support and very humbling comments in response to our last email.....it has been quite overwhelming.
I wrote about my illness not necessarily because I want everyone to know about my personal struggles but to perhaps encourage someone who may be in a similar situation to ask for help.
And perhaps more importantly be willing to accept it.
As the saying goes "you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink" and this is true for people who are suffering with Depression or Anxiety... it can be a very selfish illness.
Today there are many fantastic organsations helping people and their families cope with the effects of Mental Illness and to assist suffers find the most appropiate course of treatment.
One of these, who has helped us, is the White Cloud Fountation which is a Brisbane based not for profit organisation that was started in 2011 to provide early intervention services for adults and their families with, or at risk of developing depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and peri/postnatal depression (PND).
Founded by Professor Adam Scott, the foundation believes in easy, early access to professional clinical programs and practical support. They do great work, but like all foundations are in constant need of support to be able to keep delivering their great services.
So we've decided to help....
So if framing is on your to-do-list please call in this month and know that good things will eventuate from your custom frame. We would love your support this September to see how much money we can raise for White Cloud.
If you're interested they also have two great fundraising events coming up....
We know this alone will not stop Depression and Anxiety, but if it helps one family get
through it a bit easier, then it is worth it.
We hope you agree.
We'd love to see you in-store this September with as much framing as possible!
Thanks again for all your support and well wishes.
It really does make a difference.
Adam & Nicole
