Background: A Dollar A Day Foundation was established to raise funds to close the gap between the availability of mental health and addictions programs and the growing need for them. Founded by Brendan Paddick, Alan Doyle, and Dr. Andrew Furey, A Dollar A Day Foundation is a simple, affordable and empowering way to support frontline mental health and addictions programs. Everyone gives a little--A Dollar A Day. We put our small change to work for big change. And as we do, we'll create a social movement and build a stronger voice to make mental health a priority.

Please join us as we make a donation to Living Life to the Full, an eight-week course that provides people with effective tools to maximize their ability to manage life’s challenges, on Tuesday, July 2, 2019 at 2:30 p.m., at Canadian Mental Health Association, Ontario Division. Members of the media are invited to attend; interviews can be arranged upon request.
