Help the Child Advocacy Centre sell one Dream Home Lottery ticket package for every child served on Wednesday

Published

Central Alberta Child Advocacy One Day Challenge: One Day. One Ticket. One Child.

Are you up for the Challenge? The CACAC One Day Challenge is in efforts to reach our goal of recognizing all of the children we have supported since opening; to recognize the 426 children that have walked through our door.

We need your help! Our Dream Home Lottery is not just about the big beautiful home, or the many amazing prizes – it is about supporting the children and youth of Central Alberta affected by child abuse. On Wednesday, February 6th every 2019 Dream Home Lottery Ticket Package sold will be in recognition of the brave children that we have the served since opening – and all the children we will help in the future. Our goal: 426 Ticket Packages for the 426 Children and Youth cases we have supported.

The Challenge will take place all day and will be tracked with our giving thermometer. Follow us on our journey to make our goal on all of our Social Media Platforms: Facebook – Twitter – Instagram: @CentralABCAC

There will be Facebook lives throughout the day, including interviews with volunteers and the staff, along with the ability to get social to show support! Posts can be shared and tagged to challenge other friends online, through email and by a simple text! A custom Facebook Frame will also be available for all who would like to participate and give support plus show that you took the challenge!

“One day – that is all we are asking for. We want people to realize exactly why we’re doing this, this Dream Home Lottery – it is for the courageous kids that have to come to our Centre everyday because someone has hurt them. Each ticket package sold gives back the promise and possibility of a healthy future & recognizes the adversity these children innocently faced.” Mark Jones, CEO

Ticket Packages start at only $35 with over $1.8 Million in prizes to be won! To purchase tickets online or for more information visit our lottery website: cacaclottery.ca or call: 1-833-475-4402. Tickets can also be purchased directly at the Dream Home at 57 Larratt Close, Red Deer (from Wednesday-Sunday, 1-5pm).

The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre is a not for profit organization rooted in the protection and recovery of today’s most innocent and vulnerable – our children. The Centre is comprised of a collective that is driven by the courage to support children, youth, and their families affected by abuse, enabling them to build enduring strength and overcome adversity. We work in a collaborative partnership with the Central Region Children's Services, Alberta Health Services, Alberta Justice, Alberta Education, the Central Alberta Sexual Assault Support Centre and the RCMP. Together we harness our collective courage to provide children with supported recovery. It takes courage and bravery for a child to share their story of abuse, for families to bring their children forward, to believe, to listen without judgement, and to seek justice. Supporting the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre today is an investment in the promise and possibility of a healthy future for our children and our community.

Achieving Mental Health is an Everyday Task

Achieving Mental Health is an Everyday Task

Duane (not his real name) shared, “I have dealt with my depression on my own for over 15 years, with the aid of anti-depressant drugs. I wasn’t even aware of the anxiety issues until they were pointed out to me just last year. Approximately 4 years ago I did seek therapy during one particularly low period in my mood. I carried on until April of last year when I had a suicide attempt that showed me I need additional help from outside resources including Mental Health, Red Deer PCN, and my company EFAP. Seeing how my suicide attempt impacted my immediately family was my impetus to get additional help.

I took the Red Deer PCN Happiness Basics program. I believe the course helped me to see that I have to make a daily practice of the skills I have been taught. I can’t just try and apply them when I’m feeling down. By doing this I have levelled off my moods; I am not walking on air but I seem to be avoiding the deep depressive periods I had in the past. I am thankful for this change in my daily life.

For anyone else struggling with depression, I would suggest they attend the Red Deer PCN groups and actively participate. Very good tools are provided but they are of no use if not implemented in your daily life. I will continue with one on one therapy. I am now taking the Anxiety to Calm group and I will apply the skills I learn every day!  I also will continue the medications prescribed by my psychiatrist.”

Always remember achieving mental health is an everyday task!
