💚 Why are we marking World Mental Health Day 2019?
Put simply, we are marking World Mental Health Day because we believe in mental health for all.
And if we can use our platform to promote more open and honest conversations, then we will.
🤝 Why have we chosen Shout as our charity partner?
Shout is the UK’s first free 24/7 text service for anyone in crisis anytime, anywhere. Being in the messaging space ourselves, it made sense to choose to support Shout, who are using messaging and tech for good. You can find out a bit more about them here.
☕ Why a hot drink huggg?
We see hugggs as tiny acts with big impacts, and it turns out, you agree.
People and companies have been sharing hot drink hugggs when words – or real hugs – fail them. To reach out to someone who might need to talk. Make someone feel less lonely. Or serve as a reminder to take a moment out. Mental health workers have told us hot drink hugggs are a good way to facilitate trackable CBT, where going outside to grab a coffee is set as a weekly challenge for those suffering from social anxiety and other disorders. It just made sense.
📅 How long are these hugggs valid for?
If you’re sending via the app, they’re good for a year. If you’re using our business platform, you set the expiry, so it’s up to you!
🗺️ Where can they collect it?
We have hundreds of huggg spots dotted across the UK, ready to welcome our people with open arms.
