Kind²Mind Big Give: one donation, twice the impact

MYPAS is delighted to announce that we have been selected to take part in the 2024 Kind²Mind match funding campaign, organised by the Big Give. The Big Give is partnering with over 150 amazing mental health charities, helping people to feel seen, heard, and supported.

Donate to MYPAS once and have twice the impact during Mental Health Awareness Week 2024. Simply support MYPAS at this link which goes live between midday 14 – 28 May 2024 and your donation will be doubled!

Can you help us hit our match funding target of £10,000?

Why is MYPAS taking part this year?

To continue our Young People’s Art Therapy Project, the only service of its kind, in East Lothian and help us reach more young people.

This service provides therapeutic support to vulnerable young people aged 12-18 in East Lothian to improve their mental health. Art Therapy works well with young people who find traditional talking therapies difficult.

‘Art therapy has really helped me lots, I feel stronger and I am in a good place now. It feels good to say that!’ – young person aged 14

During Mental Health Awareness Week, we kindly ask you to make a donation to our Big Give Kind 2 Mind campaign. So, if you donate £5, the Big Give donate £5, making your donation worth £10! One donation, twice the impact. 

We aim to raise a total of £10,000 through this campaign, £5,000 in donations and £5,000 matched by the Big Give. This money will go towards delivering support for good mental health. 

We need your help to spread the word about this campaign, encourage people to donate, donate or run a fundraising event (with profits being sent as a donation).

  • Mark the 14-28 May in your diaries as the campaign dates and let people know, to only donate to this campaign during this time.
