Bell Let's Talk Day

One of the biggest hurdles for anyone struggling with mental illness is overcoming the stigma attached to it. The annual Bell Let’s Talk awareness campaign and Day is driving the national conversation to help reduce this stigma and promote awareness and understanding, and talking is an important first step towards lasting change.

Bell Let’s Talk Day 2020 saw Canadians and people around the world take action, sharing a record 154,387,425 messages of support for mental health, resulting in a total of $7,719,371.25 in Bell funding to mental health initiatives in Canada.

4K Community Cup winner for January 2021
Jennifer Turcotte

 
As we all continue to go about our lives trying to avoid catching a virus, it is important to remember that acts of kindness are just as contagious. It is in this spirit that Jennifer Turcotte decided to launch her Purse Project this holiday season. The idea was to collect and repurpose gently used purses and fill them with toiletries; shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, soap, anything that someone might use on a daily basis and distribute them to people in need. Jennifer also encouraged those donating to add a sweet note and some treats.

Jennifer grew up in Montreal, raised by a widowed mother of five children who, despite working hard to support a large family, always found time to offer a helping hand to those in need. When Jennifer moved to Morin-Heights she continued to be inspired by the generosity of her community and began brainstorming ways she could give back. Now a mother of “three sweet children” with two part time jobs, a member of the P.P.O. (Parent Participation Organization) and volunteer coordinator at Morin-Heights Elementary School, Jennifer somehow found the time this past November to execute her grassroots Purse Project. She put the word out on Facebook, placed a basket for collection outside her front door and the response from the community was overwhelming. Some people donated purses, some donated hotel items and some donated extra help with phone calls and support.
 
All told, Jennifer collected 28 filled purses, 3 empty purses that she and a friend filled and two big boxes of mini hotel toiletries that were divvied up among all the purses donated. The purses were then offered to nearby shelters with the majority being donated to Laurentian Regional High School to be distributed alongside their Christmas baskets.
 
Jennifer is hoping to continue to grow this project in the coming years: “The overwhelming support and being able to witness firsthand the generosity of our community has honestly been more rewarding than anything I had ever expected.” For her ongoing volunteer work and the inaugural Purse Project, Jennifer Turcotte is January’s 4Korners Community Cup winner!
