"Creating Hope" is a volunteer opportunity aimed at establishing a safe, non-judgemental space to write personalized messages of hope for those who are going through a tough time.
When & Where:
July 18th 2019, September 19th 2019 from 6:30 - 8:00 at United Against Poverty 150 W Michigan Street, Orlando (Suite D)
Letters Against Depression has a simple, but robust mission: to help people afflicted with depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses. They accomplish this by hand-writing letters of Hope and Support, spreading the message that "You are not alone", and that "You matter" and mailing them world-wide.
They have partnered with Peer Support Space, Inc. to bring this in-person opportunity to come together with other loving community members as volunteers go through a database of individuals that have requested a little bit of hope. They can read through their age, location, and what they are going through in order to write them a personalized message of hope. You can write a letter or you can write a quote or draw a picture on a notecard and/or bookmark to be mailed with letters. Letters Against Depression will then match each note to the right person to ensure that we spread hope to those who need it most.
Peer Support Space, Inc. works to build, and be a center hub for, diverse peer communities. They hope this will be an opportunity to not just give back but to be in a nonjudgemental space where its "okay to not be okay" and to connect with others also on personal healing journeys.
