Sold Out for 2018!!!
A BIG thank you to everyone who supported #projectsachet 2018 and purchased one of our hand-crafted lavender sachets. We sold 1,000 sachets - raising $10,000 to support underfunded women's mental health programs. Tonic Living donates its administrative costs so that all funds raised by #projectsachet go towards programming.
Many thanks go to the approximately 50 volunteers who gave their time and skill to create those 1,000 palm-sized pillows. Our staff, customers, friends and families stepped up to stuff them with lavender this fall, when our shipment came in late. Sewists from the Yorkshire Rose Quilting Guild and the York Heritage Quilting Guild spent countless hours closing and finishing each sachet with a flair of floss. And in the true spirit of community, a local Toronto quilt store, Fabric Spark and Country Clotheslines, organized an old-fashioned sewing bee to start us off by cutting and sewing the little squares into their tiny pillow shape. We think our youngest volunteer was eight years old and our oldest pushing 80, but who's counting!
And so now we start the process again for our November 2019 campaign launch.
If you would like to support #projectsachet before November 2019, you can make a donation here.
We thank you for your continued support.
Mental Health is Health
And we want to normalize the experience of striving to reach or maintain mental health. We also want to clear the air and talk openly about our own struggles, experiences, healing and triumphs. We want to help end the unfair stigma that the two words "mental health" have conjured up in the past.
Beyond creating a new dynamic about mental health, we are fundraising for under-funded programs like the Women's Trauma Inpatient Unit at CAMH ( the Centre for Addictions and Mental Health). Our donation has provided for simple art and craft supplies for ongoing art therapy, which community volunteers lead.
We ask for a $10 donation for each hand crafted Lavender Sachet made by volunteers with our fabric scraps and premium imported French lavender. These little palm sized pillows act as a soothing purse "popper" to clutch and squeeze as needed, deeply inhale, release some tension and continue on with your day and whatever it holds.
There is power in aromatherapy just as there is power in intentional giving, sharing and supporting - let's never forget this. Thank you for your support!
