Whether you’re looking for a way to escape the house for a couple of hours, a new year’s resolution, or just finding all that goodwill infectious, here’s some ways to support CALM this Christmas and beyond.
1. Do something you love
If you’re umming and ahhing over a New Year’s goal, fancy a challenge, or want to remember a loved one, do it for CALM. In 2018, CALM’s helpline and webchat directly prevented 675 suicides, a feat only made possible by #TeamCALM’s dedication and determination. Join them. There’s no end of ways you can get involved – from running a marathon, to dirt-biking across the Sahara. The sky’s the limit.
Volunteering for CALM is different. Spreading the CALM message at gigs, theatre productions, festivals and a whole host of other places, our volunteers make our life-saving services possible.
3. Visit the CALM Store
Looking to spend some of that Christmas prezzie cash in an all round good way? Introducing the CALM Store. There’s books, music, jewellery, cosmetics and loads more, from retailers including To Be Frank and Flower Up. There really is something for everyone – and a percentage of all proceeds go towards funding CALM’s life-saving services.
4.Whack CALM on your stereo (or, like, digital speaker it’s 2019)
Yup, we’re everywhere. Add our two Christmas singles to your favourite playlist, or download them – they’re 100% certified hits, and all sales are in support of CALM.
5. Spread the word
Want something to do while you finish off that packet of mince pies in your PJs? Follow us on social media, and share the CALM message far and wide so we can reach more people than ever in 2020.
It’s easy to do, just follow us on your social media of choice – or share thecalmzone.net where you can.
