Revivre: Get Back the Will to Continue
by Kindsey on February 24, 2014 - 12:49pm
Revivre’s goal, according to their website, is to appease the pain that people with anxious, depressive or bipolar troubles as well as help their close ones. At the moment they have multiple activities taking place. One of their most important activities is a fundraiser that takes place every year named “Donner le goût de Revivre”. Everyone pays a ticket to attend a supper with a music show and an auction. For the auction, you can pay to dine with some famous Quebecers or for priceless wine bottles. The money made from these events help Revivre to keep helping people with mental illnesses. Moreover, they hold conferences, meetings for people to exchange information and group time with others going through the same thing. There are also many workshops to work on self-esteem and individual consultations. Furthermore, they have a phone line to help out if ever someone struggling with anxious, depressive or bipolar troubles needs to talk. Revivre needs volunteers to help out at the conferences and animators for group time.
Revivre has existed for now 22 years and they are now lacking the financial means to keep the organization alive since the government has cut their budget. A simple signature to their petition could keep their organization alive and help them help others.
I have tried contacting the association through their e-mail on Februrary 24th to get more information on their projects. However, three days later, I still remain with no response.
