Bridges Gives Back 2021 #bridgesgivesback2021
The Bridges Gives Back #bridgesgivesback project began when our founder and regional account director Nanny Eliana saw an opportunity to use her creative writing debut to contribute to help increase mental health awareness.
In late 2020, Nanny was invited to contribute a letter to a literary anthology called ‘Letter to my Mother’ (pictured on the right) to be published by Marshall Cavendish. In her contribution, she shed light on living with her father who has paranoid-schizophrenia. When she learned from her editor that other contributors have talked about mental health issues such as depression in their letters, she realised the anthology’s potentially broader impact in raising awareness of mental health.
For every copy of ‘Letter to my Mother’ purchased through Bridges M&C Pte Ltd (Singapore), SGD$5 will be donated to the Singapore Association of Mental Health (SAMH). The book retails for S$25 which includes complimentary postage to any address in Singapore.
For every copy of ‘Letter to my Mother’ purchased through Bridges M&C Sdn Bhd (Malaysia), you are donating MYR XXX to the <insert charity>. The book retails for MYR 69.90 which includes complimentary postage to any address in West Malaysia.
Established in 1968, the Singapore Association for Mental Health (SAMH) is a non-profit and non-government social service agency that provides a comprehensive range of mental health services; which include rehabilitative, outreach and creative services, to the community in Singapore. SAMH aims to reintegrate persons with mental health issues back into society through community-based mental health programmes, and services that provide rehabilitative care for these individuals, and support for their families and caregivers.
