A Critical Cause Fund

A Critical Cause: Gamers for Mental Health

As gamers, we love to talk about all the amazing worlds we play in, about the things we create, about the things we've fought, and about the fun we've had. But many of us still have trouble talking about mental health. It's estimated that 1 in 5 Canadians will develop a mental illness in their lifetime. Even though these illnesses are common, people with mental health issues can still feel lost and alone. Maybe you know a friend who struggles with depression or maybe you are fighting your own battle, but usually there are little-to-no resources for someone dealing with these problems that they don't know how to solve. With your help, we're going to change that.

We at The Critical Hit (www.criticalhit.tv) have set up this fund that will go toward mental health research and support, because to us... this truly is a critical cause. We want to show the world that mental health issues matter, and that the people who have them are deserving of love, kindness, and respect.

To make your gift go further, we currently have a Community Building Stretch Program. Until 2017, for every $5 gift to A Critical Cause, The Winnipeg Foundation will add another $1 to the fund, up to a maximum of $2,000 per year.

All gifts to this fund will be pooled and invested with the generated income distributed as grants to local registered charities. As the original gift remains invested, your contribution will continue to benefit our community in perpetuity.
