Hello Friends and Allies! :)
My wonderful sister has started this fundraising effort, and I have decided to join her by playing live music in support of mental health. I will be thrilled if you would support us by donating to CAMH. CAMH is a psychiatric teaching hospital in Toronto and they do a lot of research with mental health as well as treatment of patients. I have not been involved with them personally yet, but have heard good stories about the work that they do. The dream is that through these fundraising efforts, we will help break down some of the stigma around mental illness, and provide more people with access to much-needed services.
I will be playing Santour (an Iranian instrument) as part of this fundraising. My sister and her friends will be doing Azerbaijani dance and Kurdish dance.
