How you can support CALM
Drop a donation
Every week 125 people in the UK take their own lives, but just £8 is enough to fund one potentially life-saving call. The fastest way to support is by donating, it’s a simple way to take a stand against suicide and you don’t even have to lift a finger.
Take on a challenge
Fancy a challenge, or want to remember a loved one? Whether you run or cycle, skydive or score goals, there are heaps of ways to get involved and loads of inspiration on stuff you can do. Pull on a CALM tee and run beachside in the Brighton Marathon, sign up to a 5k or take part in the Superhero Series. Keep your eyes on upcoming events and we’ll be there to cheer you on from the sidelines.
Stick it to Winter
We love those big meaty challenges – the marathons, triathlons and swimathons, but we’re just as keen for the off-the-wall ones. Shave your head, wear a false nose for a week, or see how many hot dogs you can eat in a minute, whatever you do, do it for CALM. We want to hear how you’re planning to #StickItToWinter, so share what you’re up to on social media and get involved. Find out more on how to get involved here.
Tell a mate today
Sometimes a few stupid words can make all the difference. Because who doesn't love a good compliment? Got a mate who’s having a hard time? Tell ‘em why you appreciate them or ping ‘em a Whatsapp to let them know you’re there. It doesn’t always have to be deep and meaningful. Just letting someone know you value them for being them could mean more than you think.
Live stream. Save lives.
Get your mates together for a Mario Kart marathon, share your famous sausage roll recipe, or break your push-up PB - whatever you stream, do something you love and unite your community against suicide. The CALM streaming hub is full of ideas to help you go live and stream something epic online.
Keep up to date
The CALM newsletter is packed full of good stuff, including ideas for getting involved.
