We took all our favourite things about fundraisers—art, resources, and events—and combined them to create Life on the Line, which is raising awareness and funds for Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Toronto youth mental health programs.
An online art fundraiser of limited edition prints by notable Canadian artists during Mental Illness Awareness Week (October 2022) will raise money for youth mental health programs at CMHA Toronto.
Our campaign will create youth mental health content and resources in collaboration with therapists, experts, practitioners, advocates, and other mental health professionals.
The launch event on October 6th from 6-10PM at 918 Bathurst will offer early access to artwork, a youth artist exhibition, live music and painting, a silent auction, and, of course, drinks and food!
Reached over 8.5 million people in 2020-21
