Heard about the #SingingMamasChallenge?
It’s an amazing campaign we’ve launched to get the nation singing! Why? Because we want to encourage everyone to take time out, to spend wonderful family time singing in celebration of mothers everywhere!
Take a look at Kate’s film, currently circulating on facebook:
We also recognise that for many, being a mother is not always a walk in the park. It can be tough. Of course, there are the sleepless nights, feeding challenges and feelings of isolation that many mums experience. Many also suffer from post-natal depression and anxiety. And there are also those who suffer devastating loss, be it from miscarriage, still birth, the loss of an older child or of a spouse or partner, or indeed, of their own mother.
For these reasons and more, we’ve made the #SingingMamasChallenge in aid of Mind – @Mind – and we’d love you to join in, spread the message and donate to this amazing charity.
Here’s how you can take part…
- Sing a song you love – any song, it doesn’t matter what it is
- Film yourself singing it (with or without others) in aid of Mind, nominate friends to do the same and mention ‘Text MIND to 70660 to donate £3’
- Share it on social media, tagging your nominated friends
- In the text, mention #SingingMamasChallenge, in aid of Mind @mind (we’ve included some suggested wording below if you just want to copy and paste)
- Finally, *text MIND to 70660 to donate your £3
*Text costs £3 plus network charge. Mind receives 100% of your donation. Obtain bill payer’s permission. Customer care 020 8215 2243 Charity no. 219830.
Singing releases endorphins and is scientifically proven to make you happier. Whether you’ve never sung before or you’re an accomplished singer, it doesn’t matter. We just want you to join us, to take time out with your loved ones, to enjoy singing your song and to share the beautiful sounds you create.
