On 29th January our Canadian FDMers joined hands with Bell, a Canadian telecommunications company, to take part in Bell Let’s Talk Day. On this day, people around the world joined in to help create positive change for people living with mental health issues. Bell committed to donate 5 cents every time someone uses the #BellLetsTalk online and FDM got involved by encouraging our Instagram followers to share what they do to maintain a self-care routine.
