Bell Let’s Talk Day is January 28
Launched in 2010, the Bell Let’s Talk mental health initiative is a national charitable program that promotes mental health across Canada with significant funding for community care, research, and workplace best practices, and fights the stigma around mental illness with high-profile events like Bell Let’s Talk Day. Set for January 28, 2014, the fourth annual Bell Let’s Talk Day invites Canadians to join the conversation and help end the stigma around mental illness.
On Bell Let’s Talk Day, Bell donates 5 cents for every text, mobile call, and long distance call made by Bell and Bell Aliant customers, every tweet using #BellLetsTalk, and every Facebook share of the Bell Let’s Talk Day image. Bell’s donations are made at no extra charge to Bell Let’s Talk Day participants, though normal long distance or text charges, if any, apply.
